(7/30/14) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda is set to make a rehab start Sunday, though his destination has yet to be determined.
Pineda, who threw 45 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, has been out with a shoulder injury since late April. His minor league rehab is expected to last about a month.
"I think you've got to get him to where he can go 90 pitches, and you feel good abot it (and) where he's not fatiguing," Joe Girardi told the New York Daily News. "I think if you get there, then he's a guy you think about."
Pineda compiled a 2-2 record and 1.83 ERA in four starts before a 10-game suspension from Major League Baseball for his use of pine tar on the mound. He sustained the injury upon his return.

(7/29/14) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda threw 45 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, ESPN.com reports.
Pineda is set to begin a rehab assignment Sunday, and he'll be activated at some point in the following 30 days if he doesn't suffer a setback and have to come off assignment. He has been sidelined since April 23 due to shoulder inflammation.
|Michael Pineda will get some game action Tuesday |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/28/14) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda is scheduled to throw three innings in a simulated game in Tampa on Tuesday, according to the Journal News on Monday.
Pineda is expected to get stretched out in the minors before rejoining the team. Girardi is not concerned about the amount of reps he'll need before he is reinstated.
"As long as he feels good and is throwing the ball well, there'd be no reason not to bring him back," Girardi said. "It's the same as spring training. You build them up, when they're ready to go, you send them."
|Michael Pineda throws two innings |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(7/24/14) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda (shoulder) had his scheduled simulated game rained out, so he pitched inside and threw the equivalent of two innings, reports The Journal News. Pineda will throw three innings or 45 to 50 pitches early next week, the report said.
Manager Joe Girardi told the paper he wasn't sure whether that would be a simulated game or in the minors.
|There was some hope that Michael Pineda could return for a late-season stint in 2013, but the road back from shoulder surgery prevented that, despite some excellent numbers over 10 minor league rehab games (3.32 ERA and 1.11 WHIP, with 41 strikeouts in 40 2/3 innings). Pineda comes into 2014 as a nice sleeper candidate. He comes in with little pressure (helped along by the player he was traded for, Jesus Montero, failing on his own in 2013) and with many Fantasy players having forgottenjust how good he was in 2011, when he earned an All-Star nod and finished fifth in Rookie of the Year voting. Pineda is good for a low ERA and WHIP, and a K/9 around 9.0. He has huge upside potential with an early late-round pick.
