Pinder will report to Triple-A Salt Lake City after being released by the Yankees in late July. Pinder made 26 appearances (28.2 innings) with the Yankees in 2015, and had a 3.45 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with 26 strikeouts, but has pitched very little this season as he recovered from Tommy John surgery in 2016.
Pinder (elbow) was activated off the 7-day DL and made his season debut with Double-A Trenton on Friday.
After undergoing Tommy John surgery last April, the 27-year-old needed five rehab appearances before he was deemed ready to head out to the Yankees' Double-A affiliate. Pinder looked sharp in striking out three over two scoreless innings in his lone appearance thus far, and he'll now likely serve as organizational depth in the bullpen going forward now that he's healthy.
Pinder (elbow) began a rehab assignment with short-season Staten Island on Tuesday, tossing three scoreless innings with five strikeouts.
Pinder underwent Tommy John surgery in April of 2016, but it seems like everything is back in working order. He'll likely require a few more rehab appearances before returning to full duty with the Triple-A squad, but this is certainly a good sign moving forward. He could be back in full sometime in early July.
Pinder (elbow) threw a batting practice session Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.
Pinder is just a week shy of being a year removed from Tommy John surgery, and after missing nearly all of 2016 it sounds like he could be back in game action in the near future. The righty impressed in his first stint in the big leagues with a 2.93 ERA in 25 relief appearances in 2015, but once he's healthy he figures to serve as organizational depth in the bullpen.
Pinder (elbow) was designated for assignment Tuesday.
Pinder underwent Tommy John surgery in April, so he likely won't be able to pitch for a good chunk of the first half in 2017. Once he does return, however, the 27-year-old will look to claw his way back into the major league bullpen after making his debut in 2015, when he posted a 2.93 ERA in 27.2 innings pitched.
