Pineda set to throw bullpen sessionBy
Via George King, right-hander Michael Pineda will throw a bullpen session on Tuesday. It appears that it will be his first time on a mound since being placed on the disabled list with shoulder tendinitis. Pineda threw a bunch of long toss last week and has been throwing off flat ground for a while. Joe Girardi recently said that he doesn’t expect him back this month.
In other news, King reports that Andy Pettitte will pitch for High-A Tampa tomorrow, his second minor league appearance. He threw three innings and 32 pitches for Tampa on Monday, so he got an extra day of rest between starts.
