New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino will undergo an MRI Sunday after leaving Saturday's minor-league rehab start with a right groin injury, according to Lindsey Adler of The Athletic.

Severino, 27, is on the mend from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in February 2020.

This will likely represent a setback in Severino's recovery, at a time when the Yankees' rotation increasingly needs help. Entering Saturday with a collective 3.63 ERA (10th in MLB), New York currently has Corey Kluber sidelined with a strained rotator cuff. Furthermore, Jameson Taillon struggled during Saturday's game, recording just one out against the Philadelphia Phillies and lifting his ERA to 5.74.

Severino hasn't pitched since the 2019 season, making just three starts that year. The right-hander owns a 3.46 ERA and 3.35 FIP over 99 career outings.
