Yankees pitcher Luis Severino will miss at least six weeks with a lat strain an MRI revealed on Tuesday. More

The club announced Tuesday night that ace Luis Severino will be shut down for the next six weeks after being diagnosed with a Grade 2 lat strain.

"He's been saying, "Yeah, I feel OK, ' but why isn't he getting to that point where, 'Yeah, let's get on the mound"?"

The news of a new injury for Severino is the rare bad news that's actually good news, as a lat strain is a much more straightforward injury than if he had had a setback or worsening of his shoulder injury. General manager Brian Cashman then told reporters later in the month that Severino would be out until at least May.

The Yankees have dealt with a rash of injuries so far this season and now have multiple key pieces on the injured list.

At the trailer launch, when asked about the remake, Karan Johar said that he had always wanted to keep a retro song in the film. The new students are Tiger Shroff as Rohan, Ananya Panday as the rich and spoilt Shreya and Tara Sutaria as the glam queen Mia.

"We've already seen a lot of quality pitchers step up for us", says Boone. On the bright side, Sabathia is expected to be activated for a start this weekend. Gonzalez has pitched well early in the triple-A season and could help the Yankees fill Severino's spot in the rotation.

This obviously is not ideal for the Yankees, who have climbed back to 5-5 after a slow start out of the gates but have been riddled with injuries at the beginning of the season.
