Yankees' Pineda perfect through 6 innings in home opener

Posted April 13, 2017

Said Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash: "Other than the ball that Longo hit, you didn't see him throw another pitch like that". He took a flawless game into the seventh inning against Tampa Bay and his team won 8-1. "His stuff is really good - he's able to use his breaking ball extremely well, and when he locates his fastball it's good - and he has different ways he can get you out".

Pineda finally made a mistake when he hung a slider to Evan Longoria, who doubled into the left-field corner with two outs in the seventh. Just last week against the Rays he gave up four runs on eight hits and lasted only 32/3 innings.

Pineda took a ideal game into the seventh inning and struck out 11 batters. This has been the crux of Pineda's career: giving up runs and having fantastic peripheral numbers. I started thinking in my head, if he gets through the eighth, he'll be around 100 pitches - how far do I let him go?

Posey was doing well after being struck by a 94 miles per hour fastball in the first inning Monday, a scary moment in San Francisco's 4-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks during its home opener.

Nearly immediately after hitting "send", Pineda surrendered an extra base hit to Rays third baseman Evan Longoria, dashing Pineda's hopes of pitching the 24th flawless game in Major League Baseball history.

After losing the ideal game, Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothchild made a trip to the mound to settle down Pineda, who promptly finished the inning with a strikeout of Brad Miller. Give me the Yankees to get another win.

San Francisco catcher Buster Posey was placed on the seven-day disabled list with concussion symptoms, a day after he was struck in the helmet by a 94 miles per hour fastball from Arizona's Taijuan Walker. Snell is in his second year in the big leagues, making his Major League debut at Yankee Stadium on April 23, 2016. That spring, the Yankees had discovered that Pineda had a torn labrum in his shoulder, an injury that would prevent him from pitching at all until June 2013 and keep him out of the majors until the start of the 2014 season. It's ongoing. Montgomery is getting the first chance to show what he can do as the fifth starter and he'll have to pitch well to keep the job.

The 24-year-old pitched in Double-A and Triple-A last season and combined to go 14-5 with a 2.13 ERA. In those three years he pitched on a College World Series Final team and a Super Regional team, compiling a 20-7 record, 2.87 ERA and 212 strikeouts in 253 and two-thirds career innings.
