Yankees source confirms Michael Pineda will NOT be the starter tonight in Texas
— Marly Rivera ~ ESPN (@MarlyRiveraESPN) July 30, 2015
This is just breaking but apparently Francesa had it first. It looks like Nova and Pineda are both dealing with forearm and elbow soreness and this is all coming out within an hour of Price going to the Blue Jays. Obviously, we hope this is just a game or a 15 day DL injury but realistically it could be a few weeks.
Where we go from here is tough because teams know we are desperate for a starter and no one left is really worth our top prospects. My guess would be that we just call up guys from AAA and everyone who has been preaching about “the future” will see that the future has to be now, when it could have been Cole Hamels. I’m gonna puke.
PS: I could have used a bunch of people on Twitter but picked a spanish woman as a tribute to the Bronx for good luck. Shout to Alexis Ruiz.
