Pineda ‘beyond excited’ to be a Yankee
“I’m feeling great and I’m beyond excited,” Pineda said. “I never thought I would become a New York Yankee so early into my career. This is the best thing in the world. Pitching alongside CC Sabathia, I’m speechless. And playing alongside players such as Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter is unbelievable.”
Yankees GM Brian Cashman is on a conference call with reporters right now in which he said that Jesus Montero “may very well be the best player I’ve traded, and I’ve been doing this for a long time.” More information to follow on yankees.com.
