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.
