Pineda out for 2012

Postby BronXBombers51 » Wed Apr 25, 2012 5:17 pm

Michael Pineda has been diagnosed with a torn labrum in his right (throwing) shoulder and is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery next Tuesday.
The official diagnosis is an "anterior labral tear," which will put an end to Pineda's 2012 season. The 23-year-old right-hander hasn't made a start for the Yankees since being acquired from the Mariners along with Jose Campos for Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi. Pineda registered a stellar 3.74 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 173/55 K/BB ratio acoss 171 innings as a rookie in 2011.


This sucks. :-t

Ouch for the Yanks. Giving up Jesus Montero this season for nothing, could've definitely used him with the way Martin has been batting.

Own him in one league, yuck. Only keep 5 keepers as well, so it's adios. What a disappointment.

Please it is Cashman...the man who brought us Vazquez not once but twice, Jeff Weaver, Kei Igawa, Jaret Wright, Carl Pavano, Randy Johnson, Kevin Brown, now Pineda (traded for and hurt). Save for Mussina and Sabathia he has been a complete disaster wrt major starting pitching acquisitions. And since Andy Pettitte's arrival in 1995, the Yankee Farm system has not developed a major starter of note (CM Wang and Kennedy being the only two of note). Wang got hurt and Kennedy they dealt because they had the great Phil Hughes lol. He is also the guy that turned down the Haren for Joba Chamberlain deal in 2010. That worked out well. When it comes to pitching, both he and the Yank farm system are complete disasters. I am sure he will manage to screw up Banuelos and Betances as well. If he keeps them they are sure fire flops. If he trades them he will do so for some stiff and they will go on to be all stars.

definitely hurts for the Yankees. but I imagine they will still be fine and win the division. IMO Baltimore and Toronto are not going to be competition in the end, and Boston is and will be a complete mess. the only team that will challenge the Yankees is Tampa Bay.

there was a time when the Yankees considered Joba and Hughes two outstanding starting pitching prospects that were untouchable.

This made me smile.

I love watching spoiled rich kids throw temper tantrums.

Shame. Young pitching is always risky.
