New York Yankees ace right-hander Luis Severino will miss at least the first full month of the season with rotator cuff inflammation, general manager Brian Cashman said Friday.

Severino, 25, has yet to throw in a spring training game and was scratched from his scheduled debut on March 5 because of discomfort in his pitching shoulder. An MRI diagnosed the problem.

The Yankees decided Severino (19-8, 3.39 ERA in 2018) wouldn't throw for two weeks, but Cashman said the earliest the right-hander could return is May 1 because he needs to start from the beginning in his preseason program.

Cashman also updated the status of lefty CC Sabathia, who like Severino, will start the season on the injured list. The 38-year-old, who has announced his retirement effective at the end of the season, had offseason knee and heart surgeries, and Cashman said Sabathia likely will return to the active roster in April.
