Michael Pineda has tendinitis in the back of his right shoulder – a relief for manager Joe Girardi that it wasn’t anything more serious. Still, the 23-year-old right-hander will start the season on the disabled list.Well, at least the rotation is set. Either way, the more we get to know Pineda the less and less I like the trade.
An MRI taken this morning at Tampa confirmed the diagnosis.
“(We’re) very relieved, because the rest of the MRI came out good,’’ Girardi said at Kissimmee, where the Yankees are set to take on the Astros.
So, Freddy Garcia has made the rotation, with CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, Ivan Nova and Phil Hughes the top four.
