New York Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino is not expected to throw for two weeks due to a shoulder injury.

Speaking before the Yankees' home game against Boston, New York's manager said that relief pitcher Miguel Castro will not throw for four weeks because of his shoulder problems.

The New York Yankees, who have slowed from their May and June surge, are struggling a bit heading into the All-Star break. Heading into the game on Saturday, they had lost two in a row.

The right-handed pitcher was sent for an exam after the start of the game because of a shoulder problem.

It was getting worse after the second baseman warmed up. He said that he told himself to stop it before something big happened. Hopefully, it won't take too long.

The Yankees have an impressive rotation that has them atop the American League East. He has 95 strikeouts and a 3.45ERA in 86innings.

In the Yankees' game against the Reds, the right-handed pitcher allowed four runs on four hits with two walks and no strikeouts in two-thirds of an outing.

The Yankees knew he was struggling in the second. He tried to push through it but said he couldn't let it go. Our starters have been out there every day. Hopefully he doesn't miss a lot of starts.
