Found June 26, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees were happy with Michael Pineda's rehab outing last night with their Double-A affiliate, as the right-hander was sharp over six innings, according to Stephen Lorenzo of The New York Daily News. Pineda shut out his opponents over six solid frames, allowing only two hits and two walks while striking out four over 78 pitches. Lorenzo notes that Pineda used his full repertoire -- fastball, slider and changeup -- while reaching as high as 95 mph on the radar gun. For his part, Pineda was happy with the rehab appearance, saying that he was "feeling good." “I had good location today during the game and I’m feeling good,” Pineda said. “My changeup today was pretty good and my slider, too. . . . I had a lot of power today. Good energy. It was good.” Pineda is nearing his first start with the Yankees. He missed all of last season after sustaining a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder, and he's yet to log an inning for the team since they acquired him from the Seattle Mariners in January of 2012 in exchange for Jesus Montero.
