Michael Pineda shut down with cracked fingernail


Michael Pineda left today’s Extended Spring Training rehab start with a crack fingernail, Joe Girardi announced. His arm is fine but it sounds like he will have to be shut down for a few days, meaning the start of his official 30-day rehab assignment figures to be delayed. For what it’s worth, Girardi said Pineda was throwing the ball “very well.”

      How many woman get shut down with a broken nail. Apply a little hard as nails he should be good to go.

    Is a crack nail the same as a coke nail? Do we need to worry?
