Yankees | Michael Pineda has unspectacular return

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:52:18 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) returned from the 15-day disabled list to start Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Houston Astros but he allowed five earned runs, six hits and a walk in just 4 1/3 innings in a loss.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) made just 71 pitches before hitting the showers. Give him one more outing to prove his health and get untracked before sinking money into him in FantasyScore.

Yankees | Michael Pineda to return Wednesday

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 09:17:17 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) is slated to return from the disabled list Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should have been held onto in all leagues. If he was dropped for some reason, pick him up immediately, as he can definitely help your fantasy pitching staff in the final month of the season.

Yankees | Michael Pineda spins 62 pitches

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 05:39:37 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) threw 62 pitches during his second rehab outing with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: It could be Pineda's ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) last tune up before he rejoins the New York rotation, but you'll want to double-check for an official announcement before making any hasty roster decisions. It would be advised to take a wait-and-see approach with Pineda in all fantasy formats when he returns from the disabled list, especially at FantasyScore.

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:02:58 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) will make a rehab start Friday, Aug. 21, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should return by early next month, but you might want to hold off on using him on FantasyScore until he proves he's fully healthy again.

Yankees | Status uncertain for Michael Pineda

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 22:56:30 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) threw 42 pitches Sunday, Aug. 16, in his minor-league rehab start for Class AA Trenton. Manager Joe Girardi said Monday, Aug. 17, he is uncertain what the next step will be in Pineda's rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any restrictions or setbacks.

Yankees | Michael Pineda set for rehab game

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 13:20:14 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) threw a bullpen session Thursday, Aug. 13, and said he will make a 45-pitch rehab start with Class AA Trenton Sunday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should be stashed in all formats, as he can still contribute to a fantasy pitching staff during the final month of the season. Continue to monitor his progress as he works his way back to the majors.

Yankees | Michael Pineda throws bullpen

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 15:34:43 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) threw a bullpen session Monday, Aug. 10, and will throw another one Wednesday, Aug. 12, as the team prepares to create a timetable for his return to the rotation. Pineda said he felt good throwing only fastballs and changeups Monday at around 75% intensity. Manager Joe Girardi is unsure how many rehab games Pineda would need before returning, but it seems likely that he won't be back until September at the earliest.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) is worth stashing in all formats and could still make a handful of meaningful starts for his owners down the stretch.

Yankees | Michael Pineda out until September

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:58:14 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) will be out until at least September with his right forearm strain, according to general manager Brian Cashman. Pineda is 9-7 with a 3.97 ERA on the season and went on the disabled list last week. It's unlikely that the Yankees will stretch out P Adam Warren for the rotation, according to manager Joe Girardi. Warren has been a reliever for more than a month, so Girardi thinks Warren can only throw around 50 pitches in a game.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) should be retained in all formats, as he can still contribute to a fantasy pitching staff for the final month of the season. Luis Severino, the team's top pitching prospect, is entering the rotation in Pineda's start and will make his debut tomorrow against the Boston Red Sox. There's a lot to like about Severino, but using him immediately on FantasyScore would be a bold move.

Yankees | Michael Pineda headed for DL

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 11:30:10 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) is dealing with a Grade 1 forearm strain. RP Andrew Miller dealt with the same injury this year and missed a month of action. Pineda will land on the disabled list, but the Yankees think he will pitch again this year.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) should be held onto in all formats. It's unclear who will replace him in the rotation, but it could be top pitching prospect Luis Severino, who is 7-0 with a 1.91 ERA at Class AAA this year. Severino should be owned in keeper formats, and he's worth stashing now in AL-only and deep mixed leagues, too.

Yankees | Michael Pineda's injury not serious

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:50:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda's (forearm) injury is not considered serious, and it is a forearm muscle strain and not an elbow strain.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't mean that Pineda ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) won't miss considerable time or avoid a trip to the DL. Stay tuned and sit tight if you own him. Bryan Mitchell will be called up to start against the Texas Rangers tonight. He won't be available on FantasyScore.
