Yankees | Michael Pineda close to rehab assignment

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (shoulder) has two more extended spring outings before he can start his 30-day rehab assignment, which means he could join the team's rotation by the end of June. However, general manager Brian Cashman said Pineda must be pitching well in order to be considered for a spot in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: It's too soon to say whether Pineda will immediately become an option for the Yankees' rotation in June, but it's likely that he'll get a chance to prove himself in the second half of the season. That's enough to peak interest in deep mixed leagues if you're looking for rotation help by then.
