Originally written June 30, 2013 on Bronx Pinstripes:
Michael Pineda had been moving along quite well over his first three rehab starts (not including a simulated game) compiling a 0.63 ERA and 11/4 K/BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings. However, he was roughed up in a start with Trenton against the Double- A Binghamton Mets this afternoon. Pineda lasted only three innings, giving up four runs on four hits while surrendering four walks. He threw 67 pitches, which comes as a disappointment because the Yankees were hoping he could reach 100 before he’s activated –  he hasn’t thrown over 85 pitches in any of his appearances yet. With only eight days left in his rehab assignment, an option to Triple-A might be necessary in order to build up his pitch count. In the meantime, the Yankees will hope that a struggling rotation will right itself heading into July. Overall, Pineda, 24, has done well in his rehab for a guy coming off major shoulder surgery. We’ll see him in the Bronx this season – it just might not be as soon as we hoped at the beginning of June. A rough one for Michael Pineda today in Double-A: 3 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 K, 4 BB. Only threw 67 pitches. — Andy McCullough (@McCulloughSL) June 30, 2013

  • This guy had better get his act together and soon, so far the Yankees have gotten NOTHING in return for the trade that brought him over. It's time to start earning that huge salary.
