The Yankees have activated RHP Luis Severino from the IL, the team announced before Monday’s game against the Texas Rangers.

To make room for Severino on the roster, RHP Sal Romano was released.

Manager Aaron Boone said Monday that Severino could be used in “a lot of different roles.”

“We’d love to get him in here one of these first couple of days just to get him going and started,” Boone told reporters before Monday’s game. “But we’re down to 12 games and obviously we know how important these games are.

“So he could find himself in the highest leverage situation, or whatever. It could evolve into a multi-inning role, could be a big inning here. We feel like we got a really good pitcher that we got to add to the mix today and kind of treat it as such.”

Severino reached 96 mph with his fastball when he threw live batting practice on Friday at Yankee Stadium, saying afterward that he felt “game-ready.”

“Pretty good,” Severino said. “A little tired. I haven’t been on the mound in a little bit, but pitches and arm strength feel pretty good. … I’ve been feeling really good, the past couple weeks. … I feel ready.”

Severino, who had suffered setbacks this season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, has not pitched in the majors since 2019.

More help could be on the way for the Yanks, too.

Domingo German could be activated on Tuesday, per Boone, while Jameson Taillon will likely pitch in a rehab game on Wednesday.
