Pineda lasts three innings in latest rehab startBy
In his second minor league rehab start with Double-A Trenton, Michael Pineda allowed four runs on four hits, four walks, and a hit batsman in just three innings of work. He struck out four and only 32 of his 67 pitches were strikes (47%).
Pineda’s rehab window expires on July 8th, so there’s time for just one more tune-up game. At this point, I have to think the Yankees will send him to Triple-A Scranton when the clock is up. They’ll “but back” a year of control and he’ll get to continue to work where results don’t matter following surgery.
