Michael Pineda hasn’t pitched for the Yankees since getting booted from his April 23 start for having pine tar on his neck, but after a suspension followed by a lengthy disabled list stint for shoulder/back problems he’s finally ready to return.
Roger Rubin of the New York Daily News reports that Pineda is scheduled to rejoin the Yankees’ rotation on August 13 against the Orioles. However, before that happens he’ll need to avoid another setback in a rehab start tonight at Triple-A, where he’s slated to throw around 75 pitches.
Before the suspension and injury Pineda was having a promising comeback, posting a 1.83 ERA and 15/3 K/BB ratio in four starts after missing all of 2012 and all of 2013.
