Michael Pineda picked up right where his 6-12 2016 season left off. He lasted only 3 2/3 in his first start of 2017, giving up 4 runs on 8 hits.
But this has been who he is in a Yankees uniform. In his three years in pinstripes he has a 23-28 (fuck you Brian Kenny wins matter) record with a 4.15 era.
In other words, he sucks.
The Yankees rotation sucks and they're going to have to score 10 runs a game to make any kind of run at the playoffs. Even with all of the young offensive talent in the lineup that seems unlikely.
Bottom line is, as long as Pineda is in the middle of a rotation that has one and a half capable starters in it, the Yankees are in fucking trouble.
