Michael Pineda left his simulated game after one inning today, complaining of stiffness in his back. After going through an MRI tube, it seems Pineda could be the latest Yankees to hit the disabled list.
According to Bryan Hoch of Yankees.com, Michael Pineda has a Grade 1 strain in his teres major muscle, which is just under his shoulder. He’ll come to New York tomorrow for an evaluation with Yankees team physician Dr. Chris Ahmed where the Yankees will decide what they will do next pertaining to Pineda. The Yankees already faced a blow with Ivan Nova being out for the season with Tommy John Surgery–this injury only worries fans about the Yankees struggling starting rotation.
