The Montero Trade Just Keeps Getting Better!

From Matt Snyder:
Yankees starting pitcher Michael Pineda has been shut down again due to weakness in his right shoulder, manager Joe Girardi told reporters Saturday (including Danny Knobler of Pineda was scheduled to throw two innings in an extended spring training game. Now he's scheduled to see a Doctor Monday in Tampa.

"I can't tell you when we'll get him back now," said Girardi.

Pineda, 23, was the Yankees' big ticket acquisition this past offseason, as they traded promising young slugger Jesus Montero for him. But Pineda has been unable to get his shoulder into shape due to continuing "weakness" or "fatigue."
Meanwhile, as we get accustomed to our new damaged goods, Jesus Montero has started the 2012 campaign a bit slow, but hey, at least he's healthy.
