Yankees | Michael Pineda hurls gem Wednesday

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 19:20:10 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (4-9) allowed five hits over six scoreless innings in a victory over the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, July 20, with two walks and eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda had his best outing of the year by far Wednesday, snapping a personal three-game losing streak while making his first appearance this season without allowing a run. He should still be viewed as a shaky pitching option for his next scheduled start against the Houston Astros Monday, July 25.

Yankees | Michael Pineda looks for turnaround

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 19:34:06 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda will start Wednesday, July 20, against the Baltimore Orioles. He is 0-3 with a 4.46 ERA over his past six starts since his last victory June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda remains a solid fantasy option due to his high rate of strikeouts, but he has been very hittable and he has lacked wins this season. Still, he is worth using in most AL-only fantasy leagues and as a DFS play with a mid-tier price tag.

Yankees | Michael Pineda hit hard

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 19:42:51 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda allowed five runs on five hits while walking one and striking out six over five innings in a loss to the Boston Red Sox Friday, July 15.

Fantasy Tip: Pineada has allowed a combined 10 runs in his last two starts, and his up-and-down year rolls on. His strong strikeout numbers make him worth owning in AL-only leagues, but he is a risky play in all other formats.

Yankees | Michael Pineda suffers eighth loss

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 21:37:24 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda allowed five earned runs, five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over six innings in a loss Tuesday, July 5, against the Chicago White Sox. He threw just 60 of his 95 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda is an innings eater, going at least six innings in five of his past six outings. He strikes out plenty of batters, posting 113 strikeouts over 95 1/3 innings. However, with a 5.38 ERA and 1.37 WHIP he is only helping rotisserie owners in the strikeouts category and nowhere else.

Yankees | Michael Pineda shines Thursday, K's 12

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 15:57:32 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda was fantastic despite picking up a no-decision in his start Thursday, June 30, against the Texas Rangers. The six-year veteran went six innings, allowing only one run on two hits and three walks, including a solo homer. He also recorded a season-high 12 strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: It's a little baffling that Pineda didn't go out for one more inning, as he threw only 92 pitches before being pulled, but nonetheless, this was arguably his best outing of the season. Furthermore, it was his second superb start in a row, and he finishes the month of June having allowed three earned runs or less in all six of his starts, bringing his ERA down from 6.92 to 5.24 in the process. Pineda is clearly trending up right now and owners would be wise in trying to acquire his services from here on out.

Yankees | Michael Pineda enjoys best start of year

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 13:15:45 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda settled for his second no-decision in as many starts against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday, June 25, yielding only a solo homer among the two hits he allowed over six innings while striking out eight.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda was likely dropped in a lot of leagues a while ago as his ERA soared to 6.92 at the end of May, but he's been able to bring that number down to 5.51 thanks to five starts in June during which he is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA. He has at least eight strikeouts in four of those outings, so he's not exactly pitching to contact. However, owners probably need to avoid him for now, or at least until after his next start against the Texas Rangers on Thursday.

Twins | Brian Dozier on eight-game hitting streak

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 13:02:03 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier provided his team's only offense on Saturday, June 25, lifting a fastball from New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda into the left-field stands for his ninth homer of the season - a solo shot.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier is 13-for-33 (.394) with three doubles, two triples and two home runs during his hitting streak, which has increased his average from .227 to .248, which would be a career-high mark for him. The 29-year-old is still well off the pace he set last year in homers (28), but owners will take this version of Dozier after he spent about half of April and May batting below the Mendoza line. He needs to be started in all leagues now until he cools off.

Yankees | Michael Pineda posts QS, victory

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 22:07:07 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda allowed three earned runs, four hits and two walks over seven innings in a win Tuesday, June 7, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He also struck out four batters in the quality start.

Fantasy Tip: It was just the second quality start in six outings for Pineda, so he isn't quite back yet. However, this was a positive outing and he could re-emerge as a must-start across all fantasy formats if he can duplicate these results on a regular basis.

Yankees | Michael Pineda has solid outing Thursday

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 19:41:44 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda allowed one run on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, June 2, with no walks and eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Although this performance was promising, Pineda should be avoided in all fantasy formats until he can string together several more outings like this. He will make his next start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, June 7.

Yankees | Michael Pineda given vote of confidence

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 18:33:48 -0700

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi reiterated that SP Michael Pineda will remain in the starting rotation no matter how poorly he pitches against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, June 2. "He's in our rotation," Girardi said. "For me to think about that, I think is somewhat silly."

Fantasy Tip: Pineda is 2-6 with a 6.92 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 10 starts this season. He cannot be started with any degree of confidence in any fantasy format for the foreseeable future.
