Michael Pineda shut down with inflammation

NEW YORK — Michael Pineda’s rehab will take longer than initially anticipated, as the Yankees right-hander is continuing to feel discomfort in a muscle behind his right shoulder. 

Manager Joe Girardi said that Pineda reported an issue after playing catch on Friday. An MRI revealed inflammation near the teres major muscle in his upper back, prompting the Yankees to scratch him from a scheduled intrasquad outing in Tampa, Fla. 

“He’s got some inflammation still in that area, and he’ll be shut down for a little bit of time here and then we’ll try to get him going again,” Girardi said. “It’s not the news we wanted, but it’s what we’re dealing with.”

The Yankees had hoped to have Pineda rejoin their big league rotation in June. Acquired in a Jan. 2012 trade from the Mariners, Pineda has made just four starts for New York, all of them coming in April of this season.

“I believe he’ll get healthy and he’ll be extremely productive for us, but we’ve got to get him back,” Girardi said. “That’s the thing. He’s going to be shut down for a while, and then we’ll try it again.”

Apologies yankmeister. I thought the critical comments were from you. They had your handle attached to them. I’ll try to be more discerning from now on. Is there no way this troll could be banned from this site?

yank, I think you do a fair amount of complaining yourself. You’re not really in a position to criticize someone else who is a great yankee supporter and has been since 1957. How long have you been a supporter? But when management pays out 300 million you expect the team to be in a better position than the Yankees are right now.

I fear that CC and Pineda and Tex will have injury and recovery issues all year. Management needs to plan for at least another experienced starter and 1st baseman if we hope to compete for the playoffs and hope to get to the world series.

This organization should have seen this as a possibility before the start of the season, considering the fact that they had the oldest roster in the majors and what looks to be one of the most injury prone.

Also, seem to remember Mr. mediocrity saying Pineda would beat out an average pitcher in Nova, that didn’t happen, now look at him another of his girlfriends goes down in flames. Must make make for interesting pillow talk between bpuke and Pineda. Would like to be a fly on the wall in that bedroom. On second thought……..
