Severino lasted just three innings Monday
Lachlan Cunningham/Getty ImagesSan Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey left Friday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field with an apparent head injury.Per NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-dave-winfield-jersey , Posey was removed in the third inning after recording a single. He took a foul ball off his catcher's mask during the first inning.The Athletic's Andrew Baggarlynoted it was possible Posey experienced symptoms after running down the first-base line prior to his exit.The 31-year-old became an All-Star for the sixth time in 2018, though he didn't represent the National League in the All-Star Game itself. He sat out the event in order to deal with a lingering hip injury.The injury could help explain Posey's somewhat underwhelming offensive numbers compared to his production in recent years. Through 90games, he's batting .293 with five home runs and 37 RBI.By comparison, Posey averaged 15 homers and 81 RBI with a .308 batting average over his previous three seasons, per Baseball Reference.The Giants are hanging on the edge of playoff contention with a 56-54 record. They trail the Los Angeles Dodgers by five games in the National League West.Nick Hundley will take over for Posey as San Francisco's primary catcher. The 34-year-old is slugging .475 in 56 games this season. Elsa/Getty ImagesNew York Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino said he did not rush his warm-up routine before New York's 16-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of the American League Division Series on Monday at Yankee Stadium.According to ESPN.com's Coley Harvey, Severino contradicted comments made byTBS broadcaster andformerMLBpitcherRon Darling.The game started at 7:40 p.m. ET Rollie Fingers Jersey , but Severino didn't step onto the bullpen mound until 7:32 p.m. ET, prompting Darling to say on air it was "very late" for a pitcher to begin warm-up tosses.In response, Severino later said, "I mean, if my pitching coach said that [it was late] to you, you can believe it. But [Darling] is not always in my bullpen http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-randy-jones-jersey , so how does he know what's going on? I came out 20 minutes before the game like I usually do. I don't know why he was saying that.I don't know who that guy is, either."While Severino said he normally begins his warm-up by playing catch in the outfield 20 minutes before the start of the game, he wasn't seen playing catch on camera until less than 15 minutes before the first pitch.Neither Yankees pitching coach LarryRothschild nor manager Aaron Boone felt Severino rushed his warm-up.Boone noted, "He had what he intended to go down there and get done."Former Yankees catcher and current analyst John Flaherty disagreed on the YES Network postgame show, however, saying Johnny Manziel Jersey , "There is no way you can go on a big league bullpen mound eight minutes before the scheduled first pitch and expect to be ready."Severino lasted just three innings Monday, allowing seven hits, two walks and six earned runs while striking out two.The outing stood in stark contrast to his AL Wild Card Game performance against the Oakland Athletics in which he went four strong innings, allowing two hits, four walks and no runs while striking out seven.The 24-year-old righty was a leading American League Cy Young Award candidate through the first three months of the season, as he started 12-2 with a 2.10 ERA.He also won his first two starts of July http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-wil-myers-jersey , but from July 12 onward, Severino went 5-6 with a 5.69 ERA, finishing the season 19-8 with a 3.39 ERA.Severino's poor Game 3 outing pushed the Yanks to the brink of elimination, but veteran lefty CC Sabathia will look to keep the Yankees' ALCS hopes alive when he faces Rick Porcello and the Red Sox on Tuesday in Game 4 at Yankee Stadium.
