Yankees | Dubious honor for Michael Pineda

Fri, 15 May 2015 20:43:53 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda allowed five runs on 10 hits while striking out one in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Kansas City Royals Friday, May 15, and his one strikeout was the fewest for a pitcher following a game with at least 16 strikeouts in the Wild Card era.

Fantasy Tip: What a difference a start can make. Pineda ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) has shown signs of becoming an ace-caliber starter, but he isn't as reliable as some other high-priced options at FantasyScore. At his price, he should still be avoided against tougher matchups.

Yankees | Michael Pineda has career day

Sun, 10 May 2015 14:33:07 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda had 16 strikeouts and no walks in his start Sunday, May 10, against the Baltimore Orioles. Pineda joins Randy Johnson and Mark Prior as the only pitchers since 2000 to accomplish this feat.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is having a phenomenal past couple of weeks. He's bound to cool off, but ride the hot streak while you can. At the very least, Pineda appears to have turned a corner into a quite capable pitcher and is showing promise.

Yankees | Michael Pineda starting Wednesday

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 09:46:42 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda is making the start against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, April 29, in place of SP Masahiro Tanaka (forearm, wrist), who landed on the 15-day disabled list. Pineda beat the Rays April 19, and he is 2-1 with a 3.23 ERA in five career starts against them. He's also 4-1 with a 1.69 ERA in eight home starts and 9-3 with a 2.58 ERA in 13 career April starts.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has allowed three runs or less in three of his four starts this year, and he's sporting an ERA of 3.86. He should be considered a strong start today against the Rays, who are around the middle of the pack in most offensive categories in the American League.

Yankees | Michael Pineda shining this spring

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 13:34:03 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda tossed five shutout innings in spring training Friday, March 27, allowing five hits while striking out five and walking none. Pineda threw 62 pitches and lowered his spring ERA to 1.32 in his fourth start.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda was strong in his return to the Yanks last year, going 5-5 with a 1.89 ERA and 0.83 WHIP and 59 strikeouts in 76 1/3 innings over 13 starts. Now that he's fully healthy, Pineda could be in line for a great 2015 season, and he'll come cheap in fantasy drafts.

Yankees | Michael Pineda more comfortable

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 14:19:33 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda said he is more comfortable with the team this season, and he has had good spring results since reporting early. Pineda threw two scoreless innings Monday, March 9, giving up a hit and striking out two. SP Ivan Nova said that Pineda arrived in camp last year out of shape, and there is a noticeable difference in his conditioning in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: List Pineda in a group of 2015 starting pitching sleepers after he went 5-5 with a 1.89 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 76 1/3 innings (13 starts) in 2014. Pineda, 26, was a highly-touted prospect with the Seattle Mariners, but it all came undone when he was traded to the Yanks, mainly due to a serious shoulder injury. Now that he's healthy, he's primed to be a great value pick late in drafts.

Yankees | Michael Pineda throws Sunday

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 12:59:48 -0800

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda said he felt fine after he tossed 20 pitches during his first batting practice session Sunday, March 1.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda is being counted on to be a big contributor to New York's starting rotation, despite missing the bulk of the last three seasons due to multiple shoulder injuries. Depending on how he fares this spring, he could be worth a late-round flier in AL-only leagues and should be monitored in mixed leagues.
