Update: Yanks to make decision after Pineda’s next bullpen sessionBy
Tuesday, 5:30pm: Via Carig, the Yankees will decide whether or not Pineda is ready for a game after his next bullpen session in a few days. If all goes well, I suppose there’s a chance we could see him in a minor league game before the end of the weekend.
Monday, 10:32pm: Via Carig, Joe Girardi said after tonight’s game that Pineda will throw another bullpen session in two or three days. I wonder if they’ll let him get in a minor league game after that. I suppose it depends on how things go in a few days.
Monday, 8:30pm: Via Mark Carig, Brian Cashman confirmed that Michael Pineda threw a 26-pitch bullpen session earlier today and that everything was “all good.” I can only assume that means he didn’t have any sort of issue with the right shoulder tendinitis that currently has him on the DL. It was originally reported that Pineda would throw the bullpen session tomorrow, but I guess he felt good enough that they bumped him up a day. Either day or someone got their days confused. Either way … I’m rambling.
