Most of the spotlight involving New York Yankees injuries has focused on players such as Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez. However, right-handed starting pitcher Michael Pineda is also progressing, as general manager Brian Cashman told Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York that he should be ready for a rehab assignment sometime this month. Pineda once again threw during extended spring training yesterday, topping out at 95 mph on the radar gun. Cashman told reporters -- including Chad Jennings of The Journal News -- that Pineda had a "good phyiscal day." “Pineda pitched today and was at 93 and up to 95 (mph),” Cashman said. “He had a good physical day. So our extended spring is going to have a pretty strong team right now and it’s going to get stronger in the next week.” The Yankees acquired Pineda from the Seattle Mariners last offseason in exchange for top prospect Jesus Montero. The right-hander ultimately missed all of last season due to a shoulder injury, but he could arrive in the majors to make his Yankees' debut sometime in June, if he's able to stick to his current recovery timeframe.
