This year the Yankees pitching isn’t performing the way it should, which is quite an understatement.
The new pitchers that were acquired last year, Luis Severino and Nathan Eovaldi, are performing worse than they did last year.
Eovaldi’s numbers are not much worse but still he declined from 4.20 to 4.76. Severino had a solid ERA of 2.89 last year as he kept his opponents to a batting average of .229. This year, Severino’s ERA has skyrocketed to a whopping 6.79. His opponents are hitting a lot better with him on the mound: .291.
