The New York Yankees were hoping to get two of their top young pitchers off the disabled list in the near future, but it appears that the recoveries of Michael Pineda and David Phelps will be pushed back further. Both pitchers suffered setbacks during their rehab this weekend, as Pineda experienced stiffness in his shoulder while Phelps dealt with elbow soreness. Phelps' elbow soreness caused him to be scratched from his scheduled rehab start of Friday. He's been sidelined since the beginning of July, but he was on track to rejoin the Yankees after completing a pair of successful rehab starts. It's not clear what the future holds for him, as he's slated to have his ailing elbow examined further. Phelps has elbow soreness, according to Trenton manager Tony Franklin — Anthony McCarron (@AnthonyMcCarron) August 3, 2013 Pineda was able to make his rehab start Friday, but following the outing the right-hander experienced stiffness in his shoulder. The stiffness has arisen in the shoulder that was surgically repaired, and the Yankees aren't sure of his status, according to Mark Feinsand of The New York Daily News. “His strength tested out fine after the game, but he is probably going to see our doctors would be my guess,” Joe Girardi said. “With what he’s been through, we’re making sure that it’s nothing, but I can’t tell you 100% it’s not.” Girardi doesn't sound overly concerned yet, but rehab setbacks are never good news. This could prove to be something closer to normal soreness following a rehab start, but the Yankees are going to be extremely cautious considering the procedure Pineda is attempting to return from.  Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
