Home run breaks Pineda's car window

Associated Press  |  Last updated May 08, 2013
Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was involved with an odd long ball. Pineda, who missed all of last season after right shoulder surgery, parked his SUV Wednesday in a grass parking lot behind the left-field fence at the Yankees' minor league complex. After working out, the right-hander got an unexpected surprise. A batting practice homer aided by the wind blowing out went through the back right side window of his vehicle, leaving a softball size hole. Pineda smiled and said the ball was still in his car as he left to get it repaired on Wednesday. Pineda has been making progress in his rehab program, and will pitch in his next extended spring training game on Monday. He hopes to soon start a minor league rehab assignment. ''Not that long because I'm feeling good, working hard and geting ready,'' Pineda said. ''I'm really happy.'' Third baseman Alex Rodriguez, coming back from hip surgery in January, jogged, played catch and hit off a tee in a cage during his third day at the complex. Ivan Nova, out since late April because of tightness in his right triceps, allowed two runs over four-plus innings in an extended spring training game. The right-hander said he is ready if the Yankees want him to rejoin the team to pitch Monday. Curtis Granderson again played all three outfield positions and homered in the extended spring game. He is expected to rejoin the Yankees this month.
