Michael Pineda’s Changeup Could Make Him an Ace

A key for the Yankees in 2016 will be Michael Pineda. He’s shown flashes of tantalizing upside, and could be on New York’s list of most valuable pitchers. But Pineda has yet to put it all together over a full season. You likely remember May 10, which was the date of Pineda’s monstrous 16 strikeout outing. You may also recall June 22, when Pineda gave up eight runs over 3.1...

Yankees' Michael Pineda on offseason at home, 2016, and 2 new teammates (VIDEO)

Michael Pineda and Nathan Eovaldi are not actually the same person

When you are building a starting rotation it is usually wise to fill it with five different human beings. That’s par for the course and teams don’t tend to deviate from it. Four-man rotations can overburden arms, and cloning is far too expensive to be a feasible roster-building option. However, the New York Yankees have two guys that are suspiciously similar. Their different...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Breakout Candidates — Michael Pineda

The New York Yankees have done little to nothing this offseason to improve their biggest question mark heading into the 2016 season: the starting rotation. Instead, the Yankees addressed their problem at second base by adding Starlin Castro up the middle to pair with shortstop Didi Gregorious. In addition, they added Aroldis Chapman to their bullpen to try and help shorten the...

Yankees have deals with Pineda, Ackley, avert arbitration

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Yankees have agreed to one-year, non-guaranteed contracts with right-hander Michael Pineda and infielder-outfielder Dustin Ackley, forgoing salary arbitration with both. The Yankees also on Friday claimed minor league outfielder Lane Adams off waivers from Kansas City and designated infielder Ronald Torreyes for assignment. Torreyes was obtained in a...

Joe Girardi has concerns about health of Yankees’ pitching staff

The New York Yankees have gone into the offseason and not addressed their starting pitching. In fact, it arguably got somewhat worse when they traded Adam Warren in the deal to get Starlin Castro. That has to be worrisome for manager Joe Girardi, who acknowledged he has concerns about the health of the team’s starting pitching. “Yeah, I think there’s a concern because of health...

Finding the Yankees a Young Starting Pitcher

So far this offseason, the Yankees have focused on bolstering their batting order through trades for outfielder Aaron Hicks and infielder Starlin Castro. But now, with the team’s position-player alignment pretty much set (barring a trade of Brett Gardner) it is time to talk about pitching. If the season started tomorrow, the Yankees’ starting rotation would look something like...

Necessary Moves: Brett Gardner, New York Yankees

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective. A player can be deemed movable for any of the following reasons: production (or lack thereof), current and future...

Rebuilding the Red Sox: The Bullpen Arbitration Breakdown

For so many teams, the salary arbitration process is the great unknown: how much money is a team going to have to lay out to keep some of its peak-performance players? What money should the Giants budget for Brandon Crawford? Should the Yankees try to design an extension on Michael Pineda or risk playing out the string? As I detailed earlier in the season, Boston’s in a rather...

Jesus, Mary & Michael

I might just go back to the Greyhound counter and buy a one-way ticket to Mexico.Last night, Michael Pineda had barely placed his ridiculous "iconic" cap on his head and we were six runs down.  He just got hammered.His expression lost all serenity, his eyes glazed and popped, his confidence went in the toilet.  I thought for a moment there, that he was going to ask for a bathroom...

Red Sox Notes: Rick Porcello Finishes Strong In Boston’s Win In The Bronx

The first inning of Tuesday night’s Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees matchup was a disaster, to say the least. Yankees starter Michael Pineda gave up six runs, including a three-run home run to Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart, to start things off, and Rick Porcello responded by giving up four runs of his own with a two-run jack to Dustin Ackley. But from the second inning on, Porcello...

Game 157 Preview: Red Sox at Yankees

The Red Sox were eliminated last night, but it wasn't the result of the effort they've been bringing to the diamond over the last 4 games. The Astros won late last night and ended the very remote chances of the Sox winning out and Astros losing out as well. But the team has won their last 4 games in a row and have only given up 1 run in 38 innings, which is a huge credit to the pitching...
