Remember in January, Cashman surprised everyone with the Pineda + Campos <—> Montero+Noesi trade (https://twyankeesfan.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/bang-bang-yankees-fill-rotation-needs/), but now it looks like a fake!!! = =
Pineda was diagnosed with an anterior labral tear in his pitching shoulder on Wednesday, ending his season before he was able to make a single start in pinstripes. He will undergo arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, as first reported by MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Pineda’s recovery is expected to take one year.
Cashman told Hoch that he did not believe the Mariners had any knowledge of an injury to Pineda and that the tear likely occurred in an extended spring game.
In hindsight, acquisition of Pettitte from his one-year retirement was a smart move and you never have too much depth in rotation!!!
