Yankees' lineup for Monday vs. Mariners; Michael Pineda's future bright again

Right-hander has been way been since mid-July. SEATTLE -- Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda seems to be on his way to saving his job for 2017 ... and possibly setting himself up to make big bucks the year after on the free agent market. Mostly terrible this season through mid-July, the 6-foot-7 Dominican finally is doing something with his...

Game 99 Recap: Return of the Mike

After a brief nap, Michael Pineda is awake. Big Mike dazzled on Monday night in Houston, giving the Yankees a 2–1 win over the Astros in what was possibly his best start of the season.

What’s behind Michael Pineda’s struggles?

Nobody seems to know what to with Michael Pineda. The Yankees pitcher has posted a garish 6.41 ERA in 59 innings of work, but the peripherals are all sterling: A 24.7% strikeout rate, a 5.5% walk rate, and a 93 cFIP all point to a solid #2 or #3 pitcher in the Bombers’ rotation. Indeed, his league-average 4.11 DRA points to some bad luck when looking only at the ERA. Eno Sarris...

A Michael Pineda Update

Sometimes, you write about something and the commenters unlock something that started in your piece and ends up somewhere more definitive.

What’s Going On, Michael Pineda?

Michael Pineda is having a hard time right now. Not when it comes to plate appearances ended by the umpire — his strikeout minus walk percentage is 21st in the big leagues, just ahead of Jake Arrieta‘s. Usually that’s good enough, since K-BB% was once shown to be the best in-season predictor, and because it’s hard to be bad if you’re striking a bunch of guys out and not...

In fact, everyday it seems like there is some new and exciting piece of research that has come out which challenges the way we think about the game.

Michael Pineda was born too late

In fits of nostalgia, human beings, especially pretentious ones, sometimes like to declare that they were “born too late.” This statement, on the surface, is usually completely and utterly idiotic. People tend to romanticize past eras because what survived of them is the best they have to offer. In reality they are clinging to particular aspects that appeal to them instead of...
