A source close to the team has told me that Yankees RHP Michael Pineda will be rehabbing with the Double-A Trenton Thunder when they begin their road trip in Altoona on Friday.
Thunder manager Tony Franklin told reporters during his media session that “no one had called” to tell him Pineda would be joining the Thunder in Altoona.
Pineda, who threw 68 pitches with High-A Tampa on Sunday, will likely throw between 75 and 80 pitches in his next outing. With Tampa, Pineda tossed 4.1 innings, allowing just one unearned run on two hits. The overpowering righty struck out four hitters.
