Yankees' Michael Pineda suffers another setback
It's more of the same for Yanks right-hander Michael Pineda and his injured shoulder.
Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda hasn't pitched since April 23 because of a shoulder strain, and manager Joe Girardi not long ago suggested that Pineda wouldn't see game action until August (source: Wallace Matthews, ESPN New York).
Now it seems that time-table may need adjusting once again. Pineda was scheduled to throw on Saturday, but instead he underwent an MRI on his shoulder. As Chad Jennings tweets, the MRI turned up a "trace" of inflammation, and now Pineda won't throw until next Saturday at the earliest.
In light of Pineda's shoulder history -- recall that he missed the entire 2012 and 2013 seasons after undergoing labrum surgery -- it's fair to wonder whether he's going to pitch again this season.
Speaking of this season, Pineda has pitched to a 1.83 ERA and 5.00 K/BB ratio in four starts. It's anyone's guess as to whether he makes another one any time soon.
The coveted right-hander would certainly be a fit in Milwaukee
