The New York Mets primary target this offseason is likely going to be starting pitching. With the departures of Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, those holes are going to be some big ones to be filled. The ace of the staff being Kodai Senga, the Mets will need to add depth. With their plan of meeting with longtime Yankees starter, Luis Severino, that will be a step in the right direction.
Severino, 29, made his MLB debut with the Yankees in 2015. A once promising ace has had his fair share of injuries in his career, derailing it a bit. Severino's best season came in the Yankees magical 2017 season when he finished 3rd in AL Cy Young voting. He posted a phenomenal 2.98 ERA in just under 194 innings pitched.
Severino's 2023 was a bit of a disaster to say the least. Pitching to a career worst 6.65 ERA in just under 90 innings pitched. Severino and the Yankees are likely to part ways as the Yankees will look to other options. Severino's career is far from over however. A trip to the borough over from the Bronx might be just what he needs to turn his career around.
