New York Yankees ace Luis Severino, who has been sidelined since spring training, still has not thrown off a mound and recently underwent another MRI, according to a report from MLB.com.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman called it “unfortunate,” but said the team still expects Severino to return at some point this season.

The 25-year-old right-hander has been on the 60-day injured list with a lat strain that occurred during spring training. Manager Aaron Boone said the injury is about 90 percent healed but that Severino won’t throw until it is completely recovered.

A two-time All-Star, Severino was 19-8 with a 3.39 ERA and 220 strikeouts in 32 starts last season.

The Yankees are in London to play a two-game series against the Boston Red Sox, the first time Major League Baseball has played in Europe.
