The New York Yankees are crossing their fingers that both Luis Severino and Matt Carpenter will be able to return from their respective injuries before the end of the regular season.

According to Bryan Hoch, the Yankees are optimistic that Severino will be able to make five major league starts in September after he threw from a bullpen mound on Monday for the first time since he was placed on the injured list.

In the meantime, Carpenter went to New York City for his checkup, which turned out to be uneventful. According to Hoch, he will undergo another set of X-rays after September 1, and it is possible that he will return to action this season.

On August 1, Severino’s injury status was upgraded from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list due to a strained lat.

Since July 13, when he left a win over the Cincinnati Reds early, the 28-year-old hasn’t pitched. This season, he has won 5 of his 16 starts, has a 3.45 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and has struck out 95 batters in 86 innings.

At the beginning of this month, Severino expressed his displeasure with being transferred to the 60-day injured list. However, the general manager at the time, Brian Cashman, mentioned that the plan was for the right-hander to make approximately five starts before the postseason.

Severino’s return to the starting rotation for New York will be more than welcome, particularly in light of the fact that the team recently dealt Jordan Montgomery to the St. Louis Cardinals.

When the postseason rolls around, the Yankees will then have a rotation that includes Gerrit Cole, Frankie Montas, Jameson Taillon, Nestor Cortes, and Severino.

During Monday’s victory over the Seattle Mariners, Carpenter was hit in the left foot by a ball, which resulted in the fracture of that foot. The fracture is clean, so he will not need surgery to fix it. He suffered a clean break.

The 36-year-old player confirmed to reporters earlier in the week that he would play again during the current campaign.

Before he got hurt, Carpenter was having a great season with the Yankees. He hit.305/.412/.727 in 47 games, with 15 home runs and 37 RBI.

With a 71-41 record, the Yankees are in first place in the AL East, 10 games ahead of the second-place Toronto Blue Jays. They are almost certain to make the playoffs, and they could go far.
