MICHAEL PINEDA RUMORS

Player Profile #197: Michael Pineda | SP | NYY

After a very impressive rookie campaign in 2011, Michael Pineda finally returned to Major League Baseball in 2014 after recovering from a shoulder injury that set him back essentially two full seasons. If you’d told me his Yankees debut season would be a constant battle against inconsistent command exacerbated by decreased velocity and continued lingering shoulder woes, I would...

A Possible Explanation For Pine Tar On The Neck Of Yankees' Pineda

Michael Pineda looks pretty stupid right now.  After all, he used pine tar--blatantly--for the second time, against the same team. He did it after that team--and, at least one other--publicly declared they would watch him closely for signs of it, or for any other form of cheating in the future.Definitely not the sharpest tool in the box.Or, is he?A few minutes after Pineda left...

Michael Pineda ejected after pine tar was found on his neck

After cameras caught Michael Pineda using an egregious amount of pine tar (or, according to Pineda, “dirt”) on his palm against the Red Sox earlier this month, he tried to pull the same schtick again on Wednesday night at Fenway.
