During the offseason, the New York Yankees were involved in one of the biggest trades of the year when they traded away highly touted catcher/DH Jesus Montero to the Seattle Mariners for pitcher Michael Pineda. Reviews were mixed as to which team won the deal at the time.
The season opened with Pineda on the DL with soreness in his right shoulder as he experienced diminished velocity in Spring Training.
Montero who is healthy, has started the season hitting .281 with 2 home runs and 11 rbi's.
Pineda had an MRI on Tuesday which revealed a labrum tear in his right shoulder. He will have surgery next Tuesday which will put him on the shelf for the rest of the year. The Surgery will take place in Manhattan by New York Mets team physician Dr. David Altchek at the request of Pineda and his agent, Fern Cuza.
“For this year, it's a loss,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “He was a guy that we were counting on this year. We traded for him, but unfortunately, he's hurt. We're going to have to get him back at some point next year. I'm optimistic he's gonna be back,” Girardi continued. “He's young and he's strong. But I can't tell you exactly when. I know that Dr. Ahmad said, what, 12 months? That's if things go right. Sometimes in rehabs you have little setbacks.”
Pineda was 9-10 with a 3.74 ERA but struggled the second half of the season.
As of today, I think it is safe to say the Mariners won the trade.

I was in Whole Foods yesterday when Squawker Jon called me to tell me that Michael Pineda had a torn labrum, and would be out for the year. Needless to say, my reaction didn't exactly fit the peace-and-love vibe of the store! And I am still positively irate, over 12 hours later. Best case scenario is that Pineda comes back some time early next summer. Meanwhile, Jesus Montero...
