Yankees' Michael Pineda gets back on track, but it's in vain

Sunday dropped him to 8-5 but lowered his ERA to 4.08

“I don’t want to lose; I want to win the game”

From Kristie Rieken of The Associated Press: HOUSTON (AP) — Yankees starter Michael Pineda couldn’t appreciate how much better he pitched on Sunday against the Houston Astros than he did in his previous start since the end result was the same. Another loss. “I’m feeling good because I’m pitching good games,” Pineda said. “But I […] The post “I don’t want to lose; I want to win the game” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Game 76: Pineda, Yankees going for series win over Astros

I have made the executive decision to downgrade Michael Pineda from Big Mike to Midsize Mike, at least temporarily. Pineda didn’t just get hammered last time out (eight runs in 3.1 innings), he has a 6.10 ERA in his last seven starts and 38.1 innings overall. That dates back to the 16-strikeout game. Pineda has [...] Game 76: Pineda, Yankees going for series win over Astros is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Game 76: Pineda, Yankees going for series win over Astros appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Unlocking the mystery of Michael Pineda

Along with the shiny ERA (1.89) and ridiculous strikeout-to-walk ratio (8.4), perhaps the most impressive part of Michael Pineda’s 2014 campaign was his consistency from start-to-start. Game Score is a metric devised by Bill James that provides a quick-and-dirty evaluation of a pitcher’s start. Every pitcher begins a game with 50 points and then gets [...] Unlocking the mystery of Michael Pineda is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Unlocking the mystery of Michael Pineda appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Why Phillies lit up Yankees' Michael Pineda

Yankees starter roughed up after one-hit outing against Marlins

Pineda: “Continue to work and be ready for my next outing”

What are we to make of Michael Pineda at this point? After that 16-strikeout game, he looked like an obvious all-star and perhaps a legitimate ace. Masahiro Tanaka was hurt at the time, but it seemed the Yankees still had their true No. 1. Pineda was seven starts into his season, he’d won five of […] The post Pineda: “Continue to work and be ready for my next outing” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Harper: Up and down Michael Pineda can't control the slider

The inconsistency of Michael Pineda’s slider, sometimes unhittable, sometimes crush-able, is becoming more of a troubling tendency.

Postgame notes: “Games that are not only not good, they’re bad”

One at-bat to tell the story of Michael Pineda’s night: It was the fourth inning, against what would be his next-to-last hitter. His first two pitches to Cesar Hernandez were pretty good sliders. They were down, and Hernandez swung and missed the first one, then he harmlessly fouled off the second. Next was a wasted […] The post Postgame notes: “Games that are not only not good, they’re bad” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Michael Pineda has poor start as Yankees lose to woeful Phillies

The Yankees want Michael Pineda to be unhittable, not inscrutable. That's why they're probably going to be spending the next few days trying to figure out why the big righthander was pasted for 11 hits and eight runs in 31/3 innings by the putrid Phillies Monday night in an 11-8 loss at Yankee Stadium.
