There were questions heading into this spring about whether the team should try to move him back into the rotation or to leave him in the bullpen. However, pitching coach Larry Rothschild maintained that they envisioned him to still be a starter.

He’s maintained the mentality that he wants to start, Rothschild told the New York Post. And that’s what we prefer.

Severino impressed enough to avoid a demotion to the minors and he made the rotation as the team’s No. 4 starter. However, he’s looked more like the team’s No. 1 this year.

When asked about how he鈥檚 throwing, Betances plays modest.

I鈥檓 filling in for Chapman. I鈥檓 trying to do the best I can until he gets back,he said. We don鈥檛 want him to feel like he has to rush to come back, so I鈥檓 just trying to do what I can.

Warren, on the other hand, is more than ready to brag. Whether it be Betances鈥?99-mph fastball or deadly hook, his stuff mesmerizes Warren.

He鈥檚 just straight up nasty,he said, with an appreciative tone.

Game Kids Cameron Heyward Jersey Warren, as flexible a pitcher as any, has never been a closer, but he does have five career saves to his name. He knows pitching the ninth is a different animal. Betances鈥?ability to adapt to the role is another reason why Warren is impressed.
