Yankees | Happy with Michael Pineda's progress

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has been thrilled with the progress from SP Michael Pineda (shoulder), and the righty is hitting mid-to-low 90s with his fastball. He'll make his third rehab start in the Florida State League Thursday, June 20, and throw around 80 pitches. The team will continue to evaluate him to determine if he'll be ready to return to the majors.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda could be a steal off the waiver wire for the second half of the season if team brass determines he's ready for another try at the major league level. Health is key, but if reports are any indication, he looks like he's close to top form. Consider stashing him in deep leagues soon, if not now.
