Luis Severino is not pitching well right now.

With his outing of 5 2/3 innings with seven hits and four earned runs allowed against the Red Sox Friday, the Yankees ace has pitched to an 8.28 ERA in his last five games.

That's the worst five-game stretch of his career, according to the Athletic. And remember, the Yankees considered making Severino a full-time reliever after he pitched to an 8.50 ERA in 11 starts in 2016.

The Yankees lost 4-1.

Severino is the undisputed ace of the Yankees staff and vital to New York's success down the stretch this season, but he has been struggling to find his way in recent weeks as he has allowed three or more earned runs in his last five starts, and four or more in his last four.

He has a 9.00 ERA since the All-Star break.

After Severino's last start in which he allowed six earned runs in 4 1/3 innings to the lowly Royals, the 24-year-old addressed his recent problems.

"I don't know what the issue is but I will make sure I work hard," he told reporters, via "I have been through this in the past. I have to work and try to be myself again."
