Michael Pineda has a tear in his right labrum and will undergo arthroscopic surgery next Tuesday, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (Twitter link). The 23-year-old will likely miss a full year, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch tweets. The Yankees acquired Pineda in an offseason trade that sent their top hitting prospect to the Mariners, but the right-hander has yet to pitch his first inning in pinstripes.
Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports examined the Pineda-Jesus Montero trade earlier today (before this afternoon's news), declaring the Mariners the early winners of the swap. Yankees GM Brian Cashman says Pineda was healthy when the Yankees acquired him in January, Hoch tweets. Pineda, a rookie in 2011, won't be arbitration eligible until the 2013-14 offseason.
Do any of you Doomsdayers beove that the human body can heal? He's injured, theylll take care of him and he'll get rehabbed.
Torn Labrum is no joke.
That's the truth. How many pitchers tear their labrum and never come back the same? About 100% is my guess.
Yes just showed a stat that both Al Leiter and Curt Shilling among serveral others had the same surgery early in their career and came back fine So your guess would be 100% wrong
Did they "come back fine" or did they "come back the same"? 100% right. Thanks for playing, buy a tshirt on your way out.
LOL... nice try idiot. Several top pitchers have come back as good as they were before from this surgery as they discussed earlier on the YES broadcast tonight. Leiter said he was throwing 97 the year after the surgery. But go ahead and keep trying to convince people you know what you are talking about.. I will just keep laughing.
