Yankees P Michael Pineda struggles in loss to Rangers
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda gave up seven runs — four earned — in Friday night's 10-9 loss to the Rangers.
Pineda gave up eight hits and one walk while striking out four. He gave up two home runs — one to Prince Fielder and one to Mitch Moreland. He now has a 3.59 ERA this season.
After five consecutive games with three earned runs or less, Pineda has hit a bit of a skid with nine in his last two, along with 18 total hits. Pineda's record is still a strong 5-2 with not a lot to be concerned about with him despite his past two outings.
Pineda's next start is projected for May 27 against the Royals.

Michael Pineda strikes out 16 in dominant win
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda struck out 16 batters without walking anyone in Sunday's win over Baltimore.
Pineda was two shy of Ron Guidry's team-record 18 strikeouts in a game, tying David Wells and David Cone for second most in Yankees history. He's the first MLB pitcher with 16 strikeoutsand no walks in a game since Johan Santana on August 19, 2007.
"That's as good as we've seen him," manager Joe Girardi said to NJ.com. "He recorded 21 outs and 16 were strikeouts. He was able to give most of the bullpen the day off today, and we needed that. But God, he was really good."
Pineda allowed one run on a solo home run and gave up six hits over seven innings. His ERA is now 2.40 and his record 5-0.
"In 2011, I had a really good season, and [Seattle] traded me here to the Yankees and I got hurt," Pineda said. "It was very painful for me, for everyone, but thanks to God, today I was able to show them that I am fine, and I'm ready to help my team. I'm very proud of how things are turning out, and I hope that everything keeps turning out that way."
Pineda threw 81 strikes in 111 pitches. His next start is Friday, at Kansas City.
Yankees starter Michael Pineda goes eight scoreless in win
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda tossed eight scoreless innings, allowing five hits in New York's 6-3 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday.
Pineda did not allow a runner to get past second base until the third inning when Russell Martin doubled, pushing Devon Travis to third. Pineda worked his way out of the jam by forcing Edwin Encarnacion to line out to left field. Pineda threw 101 pitches, 70 going for strikes, in his outing.
He lowered his ERA to 2.97 in 39 1/3 innings of work. Pineda, now 4-0, will look to keep rolling Sunday against the Orioles.
Yankees' Michael Pineda allows two runs in no-decision
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda gave up two earned runs in Wednesday's no-decision against the Rays. The Yankees lost 3-2 in 13 innings.
Pineda went 5 2/3 innings and struck out five batters. He allowed six hits and walked zero hitters. Pineda now has an ERA of 3.73.
"I thought he threw the ball pretty well," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said, via NJ.com. "They made him work after the first inning pretty hard and his pitch count got up, but he gave up the two runs and gave us a great opportunity to win."
Pineda wasn't expected to pitch until Friday. An injury to Masahiro Tanaka forced Pineda to fill in Wednesday instead.
"When they tell me that, I said 'Don't worry, I'll be ready for pitching' because today is my fifth day for pitching," Pineda said.
His next start is projected for May 5 against the Blue Jays.
|2014 summary: It was an eventful season for Michael Pineda, from his first major league appearance in three seasons to his suspension for using pine tar to a shoulder injury that shelved him for more than half the season. Possibly overshadowed was the performance turned in by Pineda in his 13 starts, which was pretty remarkable. Though not quite the flamethrower that he was in his 2011 rookie season with the Mariners, Pineda was one of the majors' best control pitchers, walking seven batters in his 76 1/3 innings. Though he is still a flyball pitcher, Pineda was one of the majors' best starters at inducing weak contact. All of this helped him to compile a 1.89 ERA and 0.83 WHIP.|
Playing time status: Health has been a major concern for Pineda ever since his rookie year, but he is currently slated to begin the season in the Yankees' rotation.
2015 outlook: If you love Hisashi Iwakuma, you should at least like Pineda, as both profile as control artists who can pitch in with strikeouts as well. If not for the injury risk, Pineda would be a top 30 starter like his Mariners counterpart, but because 20 starts could be a stretch for the 26-year-old, he is more of a mid-to-late round option in standard mixed leagues.
