Yankees' Pineda, Eovaldi combine for five scoreless innings
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/9/15) Yankees starting pitchers Michael Pineda and Nathan Eovaldi combined for five scoreless innings during Monday's spring game against the Rays.
Pineda, who was making his spring debut, opened the game with two scoreless innings. He allowed one hit and racked up two strikeouts.
"I like the command and my offspeed pitches," said Pineda, who threw 17 of 25 pitches for strikes, per MLB.com. "My changeup and my slider are very good today. I'm excited because the command is there and everything is good."
Eovaldi, who was making his second spring outing, pitched three innings in relief. He allowed three hits, but he also recorded five strikeouts. Eovaldi lowered his ERA from 4.50 to 1.80.
"I felt like I did pretty good," Eovaldi said. "I ran into some trouble in the second inning, but I was able to get out of a jam. I felt good for the most part. It felt like I was rushing a little bit on some of my offspeed pitches, but other than that, I felt pretty good."

Rothschild: Yankees pondering using a sixth starter in April and May
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/18/15) Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Wednesday the team is considering using a sixth starter at times in April and May to help reduce a potential early strain on their rotation, per MLB.com. The Yankees have a stretch of 30 games in 31 days beginning April 17.
"It's a result of some of the stuff that's gone on over the last few years, not just here, but everywhere," Rothschild said. "We're aware of situations here and early in the season, we need to get these guys through these stretches. Being that possibly early in the spring, some of them aren't going to be able to throw a lot, we're going to need to build them up too and give them the extra days when we can."
CC Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, Nathan Eovaldi and Chris Capuano are expected to make up the team's five-man rotation. However, Tanaka, Sabathia and Pineda were all injured last season, as the Yankees used 13 starting pitchers.
Bryan Mitchell, Esmil Rogers, Adam Warren and Chase Whitley are some of the other pitchers that will be stretched out this spring.
"It'd be nice to go through a season with five starters, but there's a good chance we're not going to," Rothschild said. "There's a good chance every team in baseball won't, so it doesn't hurt to see who might fit in as a sixth starter."
|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.
