New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles: Luis Severino vs. Ubaldo Jimenez

Luis Severino takes the mound for the first time in 2017.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

After dropping the opening series of the season, the Yankees open up a new one in Baltimore Friday night against the Orioles.

Last season, Luis Severino really struggled as a starter in New York. After an injury and some time in the minors, he had decent success out of the bullpen late in the season for the Yankees. Tonight begins a new year for Severino. Will he return to 2015 highly rated prospect Severino or will he continue his starting struggles? Tonight won't decide it, but it may provide an indication.
