Braves release RP Josh Outman on Tuesday
Cashman: Yankees prospect Luis Severino not on innings limit
"There's nothing that's going to hold him back now," Cashman said, per NJ.com. "We prepared for this, and hopefully we have a chance to have him max out, because that will mean he's pitching deep into games.
"If he performed up to his capabilities, we felt he would pitch for us from August on at some point. And here we are. So now it's, let's see what we've got."
Severino threw 113 innings last season. He has thrown 99 1/3 innings between Double-A and Triple-A.
"It wouldn't be the worst thing if he went eight innings every time and then we had to be concerned," manager Joe Girardi said. "But I think he's at a pretty good spot. His innings were somewhat controlled down there, and if I'm told we have to manage it, I'll manage it."

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg to throw bullpen session on Wednesday
"I felt good. My stuff is there," Strasburg said, per CSN Washington DC. "Just try to keep doing the same things and working on the stuff I’ve been doing. It’s going in the right direction."
Strasburg came out of that start feeling good, and the Nationals will determine whether he needs another rehab start or if he's good to return from the DL, following his bullpen session on Wednesday.
"When you have 11 strikeouts you’re doing something right," manager Matt Williams said. "It shows command for getting ahead in the count. We rely on the people that see him pitch, as well, beyond the stat sheet. Command for his breaking ball as there. Changeup off the fastball was there. And the fastball sat at 95, 96 and touched 98, so that’s all positive things for him moving forward. It means he’s feeling good and he’s got no apprehension letting the ball go."
This season, Strasburg is 5-5 with a 5.16 ERA in 13 starts for the Nationals. He has been on the disabled list twice so far this season.

A flurry of prospect callups since the trade deadline has Fantasy owners' heads spinning. Scott White tells you everything you need to know about the more notable names, such as Luis Severino, Michael Conforto and Jon Gray.
Plenty of winners and losers at the trade deadline, including Braves new third baseman Hector Olivera. Scott White looks at some of the players whose Fantasy value has changed the most.
They aren't the biggest names, but the trades of Dan Haren and Ben Revere could have an impact for Fantasy players yet.
The Mets got the big bat they've been coveting, and now they have some questions to sort out in their outfield that could have Fantasy implications.
Gerardo Parra has been very good this season, but his role has limited his Fantasy appeal somewhat. That should change in Baltimore, Chris Towers says at the Fantasy Baseball Today blog.
