Yankees' Girardi waiting until next off-day to finalize five-man rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said following Thursday's game against the Astros a final decision on who will be removed from the rotation won't be made until the team's next off-day Thursday, according to MLB.com.

With Ivan Nova returning from the disabled list, the Yankees have gone to a six-man rotation for the time being. Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda and CC Sabathia appear to have rotations spots secured, leaving Nova, Nathan Eovaldi and Adam Warren fighting for the final two spots.

Although, all signs seem to point to Adam Warren moving to the bullpen since he's had success in a relief role at the major-league level.

"He's pitched as well as anyone in our rotation," Girardi said before Thursday's game. "As I've said, we don't need to make a decision right now. I'm not worried about making a decision right now. I know there's a lot of people around here who want me to make a decision right now, but that's not going to happen.

"There are a lot of things that can happen between now and when we get back from Anaheim. There just is. Let's just see how guys are doing and we'll make a decision."


Yankees P Michael Pineda gives up 8 runs in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda had a rough outing on the mound on Monday night's 11-8 loss to the Phillies. 

Pineda only lasted 3 1/3 innings and gave up eight earned runs on 11 hits while walking one batter. He didn't record any strikeouts. This game was Pineda's worst of the year in terms of hits and runs. 

“It’s nothing different,” he said, via The Journal News. “I feel very strong today. I feel like I have the power today. But it’s not good enough.”

Pineda fell to 8-4 and now has a 4.25 ERA this season. 

His next start is projected for Sunday against the Astros. 


Yankees to use six-man rotation for one turn with Nova coming off DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced Monday that Ivan Nova (elbow) will be joining the rotation Wednesday against the Phillies, which means New York will go to a six-man rotation for at least one turn.

“The one thing that we have after this long streak is we have some off days (in early July),” Girardi said, per The Journal News. “I wouldn’t anticipate us doing it after we get home from Anaheim.”

Nova's activation off the disabled list means everyone will also get pushed back a day in the rotation. Adam Warren, who was supposed to start Wednesday, will now open up a four-game series at Houston on Thursday. He will be followed by Nathan Eovaldi, Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda, who is starting Monday vs. Philadelphia.

Nova's return also means CC Sabathia, who starts Tuesday, will get bumped from the Houston series and start next Monday against the Angels.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Pineda gave up six runs, five earned, on nine hits. He walked two, struck out two and gave up a home run.

"He didn't quite have the command he had last time," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "He's got great stuff. Guys put some good swings on mistakes he did make. He was real close to having some counts in his favor. I think the command was a little bit off. He was just barely missing. Those pitches were borderline pitches either called strikes or they weren't. He's pretty good. We were real fortunate."

Pineda dropped to 7-3. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday, against Miami. 


Yankees' Girardi expecting to change rotation plans for O's series


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees to skip Michael Pineda's next start


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) The Yankees will skip starter Michael Pineda's next outing in order to keep his innings total down, per the Daily News

Pineda isn't suffering any kind of injury; rather the Yankees want to make sure they don't overwork a pitcher who only threw 76 1/3 innings last year after coming off shoulder injuries. 

"It’s only because of innings," Girardi said, per ESPN.com. "Is something bothering him? No. This is a guy that has not thrown a lot of innings since 2011. We just felt that this is probably the best time to do it. It becomes very tough to do it when you’re in a long stretch of games because you don’t have enough starters, so this is the time to do it if we’re going to do it."

Pineda is having a breakout season for the Yankees, with a 7-2 record and 3.33 ERA in 11 starts. 

"We have not talked about (a maximum number of innings for Pineda) as an organization," Girardi said. "But we know that 220 is out of the question, in our mind, for the regular season."

Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda strikes out eight in win on Wednesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda allowed one run on six hits in 6 2/3 innings of work in New York's 4-2 win over the Royals on Wednesday.

Pineda made just one mistake on the day when he allowed a solo home run to Mike Moustakas in the first inning. After that, Pineda settled down and recorded eight strikeouts with just one walk in the rest of his outing. 

"It's nice, I feel very happy today," Pineda said to NJ.com. "Get a win in the game and threw a pretty good start, so it's good for me. My last two starts [weren't] great, but today I threw the ball good and I competed in the mound and got a win in the game. I continue to help my team. That's what I'm looking for."

Pineda, now 6-2, moved his ERA to 3.36 in 64 1/3 innings of work this season. He will look to keep things rolling on Monday against the Mariners.

"I'm working to throw my slider a little down and today that's what we [did]," Pineda said. "When they have my slider, it's tough for the hitter because I'm throwing it, and my slider is really good. That's what I'm looking for. So I threw my slider and get it out."
