|Yankees' execs happy with Michael Pineda's progress|

(5/23/13) Yankees executives were once again pleased with how well starting pitcher Michael Pineda (shoulder) threw in extended spring training Thursday, according to the New York Post. Pineda was averaging 93 mph on his fastball Thursday.
The plan is for Pineda to make one more extended spring appearance before a 30-day rehab assignment. The Yankees will then decide to add Pineda to the major-league roster or option him to Triple-A for more refinement.
|Time to act on Michael Pineda|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/21/13) When Michael Pineda had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff last year, it was thought to be career-threatening. But seeing as he's passed every test with flying colors so far, hitting the mid-90s with his fastball and completing a 51-pitch outing in extended spring training Saturday, making a play for him in Fantasy no longer seems like a stab in the dark.
He has something in the way of a timetable now. The Yankees want him to make two more extended spring training starts before beginning a minor-league rehab assignment that can't last more than 30 days. The way the math works out, he's potentially just six weeks away.
Obviously, Brandon Beachy is the more exciting long-term stash at starting pitcher. Coming off Tommy John surgery, he's a safer bet to pick up where he left off and is probably just a month of returning. But Pineda is next on the list. Remember: He was getting drafted as a top-20 starting pitcher at the time of his injury last year.

(5/20/13) Yankees starting pitcher Michael Pineda (shoulder) received rave reviews following a 51-pitch outing in an extended spring game Saturday, according to the New York Post. The Yankees are hopeful Pineda will pitch in two more extended-spring outings (Thursday, May 28) before beginning a rehab assignment.

(5/16/13) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda (shoulder) will throw four innings and 50 pitches at the team's spring training complex on Friday, according to The Star Ledger.
Pineda will need to build up more arm strength before embarking on a minor-league rehab assignment. Pineda could last the maximum 30 days once he starts his assignment. The team has yet to issue a concrete timetable for the 24-year-old.
"I expect him to pitch for us," manager Joe Girardi said. "We've said [he’ll be back] sometime during the summer. I know summer starts officially in about a month. But sometime in the summer, we expect him."

(5/10/13) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday there is a plan for when pitcher Michael Pineda (shoulder) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment, ESPN.com reports. Cashman said once Pineda throws 65-70 pitches in back-to-back outings in extended spring training, he will likely advance to the next step with a possible return to New York in June.
|Before thinking you can slip Michael Pineda in as a late-round pick for 2013, know this -- he probably won't be back until June and, even when he returns, he'll likely need some time to get back to anything close to the pitcher he was before his shoulder injury. Pineda was awesome as a rookie in 2011, with a 3.74 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 173 strikeouts in 171 innings. But, after a drop in velocity in camp last year, Pineda complained about a sore shoulder and eventually underwent rotator cuff surgery in May. This isn't Tommy John surgery, which has plenty of pitchers coming out on the other side with success stories; Johan Santana came back from it last year and had a 4.85 ERA (he had two Cy Young awards and a 3.10 ERA before the injury). Pineda is a huge gamble for 2013, and trying to impress your leaguemates by selecting him late may lead to more headaches than success. Pineda is keeper league material for 2013; expecting the 2011 Pineda to just appear in June would be little more than misguided hope. (Updated 1/2/13)|
