Insight: With all the setbacks he's been having, it's unlikely we'll see Pineda (2-2, 1.83 ERA) on the mound again until very late in the season. Fantasy owners should have moved on a long time ago.

Insight: Back and shoulder issues have sidelined Pineda (2-2, 1.89 ERA) since late April. He's not worth holding onto at this point.

Description: According to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch, Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda has been shut down following a setback in his recovery from a strained back.

Insight: Pineda (2-2, 1.83 ERA) was supposed to miss 3-to-4 weeks with a strained back. Now we might not see him until June. Injuries have forced the Yankees to go with a starting rotation of Hiroki Kuroda, Masahiro Tanaka, David Phelps, Vidal Nuno and Alfredo Aceves.
 
5/6/2014 2:23:00 PM
Description: Yankees starter Michael Pineda is expected to miss three-to-four weeks with a Grade 1 strain of his teres major muscle.
Insight: The Yankees waited until Tuesday to place Pineda on the 15-day disabled list because they wanted his 10-game suspension to run out. The right-hander suffered the injury while throwing a simulated game last week. It's the same injury that cost Clayton Kershaw more than a month of action.
 
4/29/2014 5:08:00 PM
Description: Yankees starter Michael Pineda stopped a simulated game Tuesday due to tightness in his right lat.
Insight: Pineda was suspended 10 days last week for using pine tar during a game, but his return may have to be pushed back due to the injury. He was supposed to be back Monday against the Angels. If he can't go, David Phelps would probably get the ball.

Description: Yankees starter Michael Pineda was ejected from Wednesday's start at Boston for having pine tar on his neck, and has been suspended for 10 games.
Insight: Pineda appeared to have pine tar on his palm two starts ago, also against Boston, but the Red Sox dugout didn't say anything. However, manager John Farrell wasn't about to be fooled twice. His suspension will start Thursday so he may only have to miss one start.

Description: Yankees starter Michael Pineda was ejected from Wednesday's start at Boston for having pine tar on his neck, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
Insight: Pineda appeared to have pine tar on his palm two starts ago, also against Boston, but the Red Sox dugout didn't say anything. However, manager John Farrell wasn't about to be fooled twice. Pineda will face a 10-game suspension for using a foreign substance.
 
4/11/2014 8:47:00 PM
Description: Yankees starter Michael Pineda will not be disciplined for having a brown substance on his right palm during Thursday's start against the Red Sox.
Insight: The Red Sox coaching staff didn't say anything about the substance, possibly because it dealt with a similar situation with Clay Buchholz last year. Pineda claimed the substance was dirt rather than pine tar. The 25-year-old has looked fantastic this season, going 1-1 with a 1.50 ERA and a 12/2 K/BB in 12 innings after missing all of 2012 and 2013 with shoulder issues.
 
4/10/2014 10:13:00 PM
Description: Yankees starter Michael Pineda picked up his first win since July 30, 2011 Thursday against the Red Sox.
Insight: Pineda struck out seven batters and allowed one earned run on four hits in six innings. He also may be hearing from the commissioner's office due to the brown substance that was clearly visible on his right palm throughout the game. The Red Sox coaching staff didn't say anything about it, possibly because it dealt with a similar situation with Clay Buchholz last year after a start in Toronto.
 
4/5/2014 7:43:00 PM
Description: Michael Pineda made his Yankees debut Saturday at Toronto and allowed one runs on five hits in six innings. He walked none and struck out five batters but took the loss because New York failed to score.
Insight: The Yankees acquired Pineda prior to the 2012 season for top prospect Jesus Montero, but Pineda missed the last two years with shoulder problems. He has a lot of upside and should be owned in all fantasy leagues.
 
3/25/2014 5:06:00 PM
Description: Yankees manager Joe Girardi confirmed that Michael Pineda will be the team's fifth starter, according to Bryan Hoch of mlb.com. The 25-year-old Pineda beat out David Phelps, Adam Warren and Vidal Nuno by posting a 1.20 ERA in four games this spring.
Insight: The Yankees acquired Pineda prior to the 2012 season for top prospect Jesus Montero and are finally going to see some returns on the deal after Pineda missed the last two years with shoulder problems. Girardi said the Yankees will not have an innings limit for Pineda. He should be drafted in most leagues due to his upside.
 
8/6/2013 5:19:00 PM
Description: Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda's tests on his right shoulder came back clean, according to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger.
Insight: Pineda will be shut down for 7-10 days. The right-hander had surgery on the same shoulder last year and hasn't pitched in the big leagues since his rookie year in 2011. At this point, the Yankees trade of Pineda for Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi with the Mariners hasn't worked out for either team.

Description: Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda (shoulder) left his most recent start at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with right shoulder stiffness, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.
Insight: Pineda had surgery on the shoulder so this is a huge red flag. He's headed to New York to be examined.
 
6/25/2013 12:08:00 PM
Description: Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda (shoulder) has pitched well in his first two rehab starts and could be back by the first week in July.
Insight: Pineda has a 1.08 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with seven strikeouts and two weeks over 8 1/3 IP. Now might be a good time to add him to your roster before he gets called up and everyone jumps on the bandwagon.
 
6/4/2013 8:08:00 PM
Description: Yankees GM Brian Cashman said the team won't use right-hander Michael Pineda (shoulder) out of the bullpen when he's finished with his rehab assignment, according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Pineda will start his rehab assignment Saturday with High-A Tampa. He'll either join the rotation with New York or Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when he's ready to return.
 
6/4/2013 4:56:00 PM
Description: Yankees righty Michael Pineda (shoulder) will start his minor league rehab assignment Saturday with High-A Tampa.
Insight: Pineda had a 3.74 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP and 173 strikeouts as a rookie with the Mariners in 2011 before missing all of last year following shoulder surgery. CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda and Andy Pettitte have the first three spots in New York's rotation locked up as long as they're healthy, but Pineda could take a spot from Phil Hughes or David Phelps.
 
5/23/2013 5:19:00 PM
Description: Yankees righty Michael Pineda (shoulder) threw five innings Thursday in an extended spring training game, according to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger.
Insight: Pineda's fastball sat at 93 mph, according to Yankees GM Brian Cashman. The right-hander could start a minor league rehab assignment after one more extended spring appearance. He should be added in all leagues, as he had a 3.74 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP and 173 strikeouts as a rookie with the Mariners in 2011 before missing all of last year following shoulder surgery.

Insight: Yankees GM Brian Cashman called it "a good, physical day." Pineda's recovery from shoulder surgery appears to be going well and he could return anywhere from late-June to mid-July.

Description: Yankees righty Michael Pineda (shoulder) reported to camp at 260 pounds, 20 pounds less than a year ago. The best case scenario is that Pineda could be a big league option in June. SOURCE: MLBlogs.com
Insight: Pineda just started throwing off a full mound and should start facing hitters next month under "controlled conditions." Fantasy owners who draft Pineda shouldn't expect to have him back until July.
