Pineda’s return to the Yankees looks uncertain

Bryan Hoch, writer for the Yankees at has reported Pineda has had more shoulder pain.


If you read the rest of the post he links you’ll see that the Yankees have no clue when he’ll be back.

“I can’t tell you when we’re going to get him now,” Girardi said.

Pineda will likely not pitch this season. That’s my perspective. The Yankees gave up one of the top prospects, Jesus Montero in order to acquire Pineda. It’s way too early to judge this trade, but if Pineda consistently has shoulder issues then it won’t turn out well for the Yankees.

New York will have to hope Pettitte, Hughes, and Garcia have good years. If not then the Yankees will have to insert David Phelps or Adam Warren to show what they have to offer.

    I’d rather see the kids get some time in rather than Garcia. He’s looked HORRIBLE this season. Phelps has pitched admirably, I’d liked to see what they can do.

    As for Pineda, it’s disappointing, but I’d rather him get hurt now, than pitch a sub-par season because he was injured then it’s revealed that he damaged his arm even more. I’m just trying to find the silver lining in all of this, but it’s difficult. So far, the trade is a disappointment, especially since the Yankees starting rotation is pitching so badly to start the season.
