It’s a good thing Pettitte will be back in a few weeks.
For Michael Pineda may not be back for quite some time.
Joel Sherman on Twitter reports:
Pineda IP in extend spring, still felt some shoulder weakness, shut down,
#Yankees will determine next few days how to proceed
Before this, it was thought that Pineda might be ready around Memorial Day. Now, you have to wonder.
So it now appears that it’ll be between Hughes and Garcia for that last rotation spot.
Of course, Kuroda has to pitch better, also.
Update from Meredith Marakovits, YES: Pineda to see a doctor on Monday. Pettitte to pitch for AA Trenton Wednesday.
