Yankees manager Joe Girardi compared Luis Severino to Roy Haladay. Severino, 22, was sent to Triple-A on Monday after beginning the year at 0-6 with a 7.46 ERA. "This is not unusual," Girardi said. "This is not abnormal. I'll bring up a name right here we saw -- Roy Halladay. He got sent back down because he struggled. He figured it out and was pretty darn good. This is not unusual.
