Yankees Noteback: Michael Pineda’s Setback, Andy Pettitte’s Progress

Michael Pineda had a setback as he experienced fatigue and soreness in his right-pitching shoulder 15 pitched into a minor league rehab appearance. He went through an advanced MRI on Monday and is expected to be shut down for an extended period of time.  

Until an official prognosis of the injury is fully known, the Yankees cannot comment about when the talented young hurler, who was acquired for Jesus Montero this past winter, will be back on the mound.

Andy Pettitte continues his progression toward the majors as he’ll again get a minor league rehab start this week, this time for Double-A Trenton, where his pitch count should be in the ballpark of 80 pitches.

Joe Giardi said he expects Brett Gardner to return from the disabled list once he’s eligible to return on May 3.

Largely in part because I was a huge Yankees fan and the Bombers were amidst their late-1990's dynasty. But, unlike most of my peers and friends, my passion for sports has stuck with me and has only intensified. I never lost sight of my childhood obsession. Instead it has only developed further and has become an authentic passion. I have now graduated from college and have begun my pursuit of a career within the sports industry that will hopefully be filled with endless success and happiness.
