Luis Severino

Born: 02/20/1994 (Age: 21)
Bats: Right Throws: Right
Height: 6' 2" Weight: 215
Mechanics
Slender, athletic frame; long legs; strength concentrated in butt and thighs. Excellent arm speed. 3/4 rhp with some effort in his delivery. Hides ball and deceptive front side with shoulder tilt. Inconsistent release point; often lands on stiff front leg; rushes and front shoulder sometimes leaks open. Shoulder heavy delivery; doesn’t use lower half well and keeps weight back; finishes up; both impairs command profile and a long term health concern.
