Yankees | Michael Pineda activated, Chris Leroux cut

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 13:11:56 -0700

The New York Yankees activated SP Michael Pineda (shoulder) from the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, Aug. 13, and designated P Chris Leroux for assignment in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda will return to make the start on the road against the Baltimore Orioles tonight. It's not the best day to throw him into daily lineups immediately. However, he should be picked up in the majority of leagues for the stretch run.

Yankees | Michael Pineda to start Wednesday

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 11:48:22 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (shoulder) will be activated to start against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, Aug. 13. It'll be his first outing in the majors since April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda should be picked up in the majority of leagues now that he's healthy. He can provide you with a needed pitching boost down the stretch. Starting him immediately Wednesday against the O's seems unwise, though.

Yankees | Uncertain whether Michael Pineda will return to rotation

Sat, 09 Aug 2014 11:31:49 -0700

No official decision has been made regarding whether New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (shoulder) will return to the starting rotation. Ideally, manager Joe Girardi wants Pineda to be capable of throwing at least 90 pitches per start.

Fantasy Tip: If Pineda rejoins the rotation, he could start Wednesday, Aug. 13. He should be owned in most AL-only leagues and is a viable option for many deep mixed leagues.

Yankees | Michael Pineda could return next week

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 15:02:09 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Aug. 6, and he'll make a rehab start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Friday, Aug. 8. After that, Pineda may be ready to return to the team. He threw 58 pitches in his first rehab start Sunday, Aug. 3, and his pitch limit will increase to 80 pitches Friday. His next start could come against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda has made a quick return. That's enough to make you cautious when using him initially upon his return, but he has enough talent to warrant a pick-up in the majority of leagues if you are pitching-hungry.

Yankees | Rotation options for David Phelps

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 18:33:03 -0700

The New York Yankees might look to P Esmil Rogers as a rotation replacement for SP David Phelps (elbow), or SP Chase Whitley, who relieved Phelps Sunday, Aug. 3. Whitley made 12 starts before being shifted to the bullpen. There is also an outside chance SP Michael Pineda (shoulder) could be in the mix, although manager Joe Girardi seemed to indicate Monday that is unlikely for now.

Yankees | Michael Pineda makes rehab start

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 09:40:21 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (shoulder) allowed three hits while walking one and striking out four in 3 1/3 scoreless innings for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Sunday, Aug. 3, and he threw 58 pitches in the rehab outing. Manager Joe Girardi said Pineda would increase to 75 pitches in his next outing and 90 the following start. Barring setbacks, Pineda's schedule would put him on track to return around August 19 at the earliest. "He was letting it go free and easy with no issues. So that's real encouraging," Girardi said of Pineda. "We're pleased with the progress that he's making, and we'll take it step by step."

Fantasy Tip: Pineda is nearing a return to the starting rotation, and he should be on your radar if he's available in your league. At this time of year, there usually aren't too many arms with his talent sitting on the waiver wire. Pounce in deep leagues if he's available.
