Michael Pineda on his start against the Houston Astros.
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. Pineda threw 103 pitches over seven one-run frames, allowing five hits and a pair of walks while striking out eight. The Yankees have won seven of nine, and Pineda has now yielded one run over...
HOUSTON (AP) Austin Romine hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning to make a winner of Michael Pineda, and the New York Yankees' bullpen did just fine Monday night without star closer Aroldis Chapman in a 2-1 victory over the Houston Astros.

Michael Pineda talks about his six shutout innings in the Yankees' 5-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
I did something different for tonight and listened to the game on the radio. Things started off swimmingly when John Sterling called Michael Pineda “Pinada” to lead us off. Thankfully it was not a harbinger of anything awful happening for the starter. In fact, Pineda had a nice game. Big Mike had a somewhat clean start, getting the first three batters out, but he threw 21 pitches...
Michael Pineda discusses his struggles in the Yankees' 5-0 loss to White Sox and his disappointment at the end of his first half of the season.
The Yankees lost to the White Sox Wednesday night, a 5-0 affair that saw yet another disappearing act by the team’s offense, as well as a frustrating backslide for starter Michael Pineda. After an abysmal beginning to the 2016 season, Pineda was quietly excellent for the Yankees in the month of June, posting a 2.75 ERA in 36 innings and striking out more than a batter per. He was...
Michael Pineda talks about his 12-strikeout performance and the use of his slider in the Yankees' 2-1 win against the Rangers.
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...
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...
