Pineda allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven over 5.2 innings but had to settle for a no-decision in Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Angels. He turned in a better effort than in his prior start against the Angels last Wednesday, settling down after spotting them a 3-0 lead and giving the Yankees a chance to come back to tie the game in the sixth inning to get Pineda off the hook for the loss. The right-hander will next take the mound Sunday at home against the Rangers.
Pineda allowed five runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out just two batters over six innings during Wednesday's loss to the Angels. He didn't factor into the decision. After blanking the Red Sox through seven frames with eight strikeouts in his previous start, this was a discouraging follow up from Pineda. He sports a 7-3 record, 3.71 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 8.9 K/9, but despite the solid results, Pineda might never live up to his potential and become a reliable matchup-proof option. He projects to face the Angels again in his next start, but this time it'll be at Yankee Stadium where Pineda is 6-1 with a 1.96 ERA.
Pineda (7-3) pitched seven innings, allowing one unearned run on four hits and two walks while striking out eight in Thursday's win over the Red Sox. It was a nice bounce-back performance from Pineda, as he was coming off his worst start of the season his last time out. The 28-year-old lowered his ERA to 3.39 and is working to an impressive 9.4 K/9. He'll look to keep up his momentum next time out, currently slated to come Wednesday against the Angels.
Pineda (6-3) allowed five runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out one across five innings to take the loss Friday against the Blue Jays. Pineda gave up a pair of homers in the first inning, falling behind 3-0, leading to his third loss of the season. After holding opponents to three earned runs or fewer in each of his five May starts, he started off June on a sour note, raising his ERA from 3.32 to 3.76, though he's still a solid mid-range fantasy starter. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Red Sox.
Pineda (6-2) allowed three runs -- two earned -- on three hits and three walks while striking out five batters over six innings during Sunday's win over Oakland. It was just the second start all season in which Pineda didn't allow a home run, and if he can continue to limit the long ball, the 28-year-old righty should keep piling up wins. The Yankees are the highest-scoring team in the American League, and Pineda's 10.0 K/9 and 50.9 percent groundball rate have paved the way to a 3.32 ERA. He lines up to face Toronto at the Rogers Centre in his next trip to the hill.
