Michael Pineda strikes out five in loss vs. Rays Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda took a loss Tuesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Rays.

Pineda (3-5) tossed four scoreless innings before the Rays broke through with a run on an error in the fifth. The second run against the starter came on a bunt single in the sixth with runners on the corners. Pineda owns a 2.15 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 41:6 K:BB ratio in 62 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Orioles Monday.


Michael Pineda settles for no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda wasn't a factor into the decision Thursday night at home against the Rays. He allowed four runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out two over 7 1/3 innings of a 5-4 win.

Over his last three starts covering 20 1/3 innings, Pineda has allowed six earned runs. He owns a 2.20 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP over 10 starts (57 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Tuesday at Tampa Bay.

Michael Pineda can't pull out the win Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda turned in a fantastic start Friday against the Royals.

Pineda allowed one run on three hits over seven innings. His only run of the game was unearned. He struck out four and did not issue any walks during the outing. Pineda allowed his only run in the third inning. After Alcides Escobar reached second on a throwing error, Pineda gave up a run-scoring single to Norichika Aoki. Pineda was able to get out of the inning without giving up any additional runs. 

The Yankees couldn’t get anything going against James Shields. Because of that, Pineda was saddled with the loss. He’ll take on the Rays in his next start.


Offense lets Michael Pineda down in loss No. 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2014) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda threw the ball well Saturday, but got little help in a 2-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

Pineda tossed his third straight quality start, but had nothing to show for it as his offense was shut out. He limited the Blue Jays to just two runs in the first inning, eventually tossing six solid innings and scattering seven hits. He did not walk any batters, while striking out three in the loss.

Pineda fell to 3-3 in his eight starts, despite holding a 2.09 ERA in 43 innings of work. He is scheduled to take on the Royals in his next start, set for Friday.  


Michael Pineda turns in a strong start against Kansas City


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda turned in a strong start Monday against the Royals.

Pineda allowed one run on five hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out five and did not issue any walks during the outing. Pineda gave up singles to lead off both the first and second innings, but managed to pitch his way out of trouble. That wasn’t the case in the third. The leadoff hitter got to Pineda once again, as Mike Moustakas belted a solo home run to start off the inning. Pineda was again able to settle, and did not give up another hit until the sixth inning. Pineda was pulled after throwing 96 pitches.

With the win, Pineda improved to 3-2. He’ll take on the Blue Jays in his next start.


Michael Pineda can't win Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda tossed a strong start Wednesday against the Rays. 

Pineda allowed two runs on four hits over six innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. Pineda was able to get through the first three innings without giving up a hit or a walk. That wasn’t the case in the fourth. Robbie Grossman started off the inning with a single. He advanced to second on a sac bunt. With two outs, Dexter Fowler hit a run-scoring double. Pineda was able to get through the rest of the inning without giving up any more runs. Pineda came out to start the seventh inning, but was pulled after issuing a walk. That run would come around to score, and was charged to Pineda. He threw 89 pitches.

The Astros managed to mount a comeback, giving him a no-decision. He’ll take on the Royals in his next start. 


Michael Pineda back to Fantasy relvance


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/14/2014) While you would have liked to see Michael Pineda go more than five innings in his first start back from a shoulder injury, the early hook wasn't for a lack of efficiency. He threw only 67 pitches in those five innings.

In other words, he was the same pitcher he's been in between shoulder injuries throughout his career, avoiding hard contact with an impressive fastball/slider combo and throwing both for strikes. He has just three walks compared to 19 strikeouts in 24 2/3 innings this season.

So basically, everything that made him a sleeper coming into the season -- and that he made good on before the injury -- still applies. He may not throw as hard as he did as a rookie with the Mariners three years ago, but he throws plenty hard enough to succeed.

He ranks up there with Jimmy Nelson for me -- maybe higher in Rotisserie leagues.


Michael Pineda solid over five innings


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda tossed five solid innings Wednesday against the Orioles.

Pineda allowed one run on two hits in five innings of work. He struck out four and did not issue any walks. The only blemish against Pineda came in his final inning of work. After giving up two hits, Pineda allowed a run to score on a sac fly. He was pulled after throwing just 67 pitches. Pineda left the game in line for a win, but the Yankees couldn't hold on. He did not factor into the decision. Pineda's next start will come against the Astros.


Michael Pineda activated for start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda has been activated in anticipation of Wednesday's start.

Pineda had been on the 60-day disabled list due to shoulder trouble, but is ready to return. The club announced Pineda's start a few days ago, so his activation off the DL shouldn't come as a surprise. Over four starts, Pineda has a 1.83 ERA.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cashman: Michael Pineda will not start Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman shot down the idea that pitcher Michael Pineda could make his return in a spot start Friday against the Indians, as he told the Wall Street Journal Tuesday.

Pineda, who is working his way back from a shoulder injury, has only been stretched out to throw 58 pitches in his rehab assignment so far. As a result, Cashman is not considering him for that start. However, Pineda could be a candidate beyond that, assuming he continues to progress through the assignment without any issues. 

Pineda has been out  since late April as a result of shoulder inflammation.  


Michael Pineda an option to start Friday?

Pineda threw 58 pitches Sunday, and he's scheduled to throw 75 pitches in his next rehab start Friday.

Michael Pineda ready to roll into rehab start Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) 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.

Michael Pineda will get some game action Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) 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."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

That said, Pineda is still targeting an August return, according to the Journal News.

"We have actually dates in play that we’re shooting for, but I'd rather not reveal what they are just yet because it seems like once you put them out there, then you have to alter them," Cashman said. "Hopefully he'll be back for us in August."
