​Shades of Kevin Brown!

Luis Severino, the Yankees' de facto ace in this strange 2017 season, has been on a complete roll lately.

However, when the team definitely needed both length and an exceptional start from Sevy after a three-game losing streak, he couldn't deliver early in Oakland, giving up four runs in the second inning, and even collapsing on the mound after tossing a ball.

Perhaps we know the culprit?

Hey, uh, you think it's affecting his pitching? The clear injury he suffered? The only real variable that changed between this outing and his previous starts?

Sarcasm aside, we're going to assume it wasn't his pitching hand that he delivered to a chair. If it was, that's a whole new level of stupidity.

As it stands, it simply seems Sevy hurt himself at the worst possible time in a day-to-day way. And then tried to pitch through it, which is commendable. But this situation registers an overall "Yikes."

Teams With Longest No-No Droughts .
Max Scherzer came very close to throwing a no-hitter this week, losing it in the eighth inning. This is particularly impressive, because no-hitters have begun to wane. We've only one had one this year, Edinson Volquez's no-no on June 3 for Miami over Arizona. We only had one last year too, Arrieta's second one, in a wild 16-0 win over Cincinnati. This is particularly strange, because there were seven instances in 2015, including one by San Francisco's Chris Heston, who has already been waived and outrighted by Seattle this season.
