In other words, he was the same pitcher he's been in between shoulder injuries throughout his career, avoiding hard contact with an impressive fastball/slider combo and throwing both for strikes. He has just three walks compared to 19 strikeouts in 24 2/3 innings this season.
So basically, everything that made him a sleeper coming into the season -- and that he made good on before the injury -- still applies. He may not throw as hard as he did as a rookie with the Mariners three years ago, but he throws plenty hard enough to succeed.
He ranks up there with Jimmy Nelson for me -- maybe higher in Rotisserie leagues.
Pineda allowed one run on two hits in five innings of work. He struck out four and did not issue any walks. The only blemish against Pineda came in his final inning of work. After giving up two hits, Pineda allowed a run to score on a sac fly. He was pulled after throwing just 67 pitches. Pineda left the game in line for a win, but the Yankees couldn't hold on. He did not factor into the decision. Pineda's next start will come against the Astros.
Pineda had been on the 60-day disabled list due to shoulder trouble, but is ready to return. The club announced Pineda's start a few days ago, so his activation off the DL shouldn't come as a surprise. Over four starts, Pineda has a 1.83 ERA.
