What Pineda Needs to Improve

Michael Pineda‘s May 10th performance against the Orioles was historically good. His sixteen strikeouts were the most by any pitcher since David Wells fanned that many on July 30, 1997, and he became only the fourth Yankees pitcher to rack up that many K’s in a game, joining Wells, David Cone, and, of course, Ron Guidry.

Is Michael Pineda a true ace?

There is little denying the fact that Michael Pineda has been the best pitcher in the New York Yankees rotation this season. He might have been the best pitcher during his time with the club last season as well.

Today’s 16 strikeout performance was just another notch on pole for Pineda. He recorded 21 outs and 16 of them were strikeouts. Today, his...

Vindication For Cashman As Yankees' Pineda Ks 16 Orioles

You have to believe Yankees GM Brian Cashman was one of the most satisfied people in the ballpark at the conclusion of Michael Pineda’s dominant Sunday afternoon start, second only to Pineda himself. When Cashman traded for Pineda prior to the 2012 season, parting with Jesus Montero, he did so because he was dreaming of starts like the one Pineda delivered on Sunday. The line...

After battling injuries over the first three seasons of his New York Yankees career, Michael Pineda finally looks like the exciting prospect New York was expecting to receive.
