This is NOT what Yankee fans wanted to see entering the weekend. ​


The ​New York Yankees and starter Luis Severino did not agree to a contract Friday and a arbitration hearing is expected.


The news comes from ESPN MLB Insider Jeff Passan.

​​The 24-year-old right-hander had a tremendous season for the Yanks, posting a 19-8 record and 3.39 ERA, with 220 strikeouts across 191.1 innings.


This news comes after New York reached agreements with center fielder ​Aaron Hicks, first baseman Greg Bird and backup catcher Austin Romine. Another notable player to reach a settlement was Red Sox outfielder ​Mookie Betts, who set a new standard for players with four or more years of service by settling with Boston for $20 million.

Following Betts' deal, National League Cy Young Award Winner ​Jacob deGrom set a record for the highest raise in arbitration, with his salary jumping from $7.4 million to $17 million.


As for the Yankees, here's to hoping Severino's arbitration won't get as ugly as reliever ​Dellin Betances' did last year.
