What You Need to Know: Pineda and Pine Tar, Part Two

4

Daniel Rathman

Michael Pineda gets caught pine-handed, plus the rest of the action from Wednesday and what to watch on Thursday.

The Wednesday Takeaway
Not-pro tip: If you get caught using pine tar once, then insult everyone’s eyesight by telling them it was dirt, you probably shouldn’t get caught using pine tar again.

What You Need to Know: A Play at the Plate

15

Daniel Rathman

Contact between a runner and catcher stirs confusion, plus Pineda, Salazar, Strasburg, and what to watch this weekend.

The Thursday Takeaway

Update: The original version of the Takeaway indicated that the new ban on catchers blocking the plate resulted in Starlin Castro being called safe. That was not the case, and this portion is now revised to reflect the umpire’s comments after the game.

After two years on the shelf with a shoulder injury, Michael Pineda appears to have recovered his old stuff.

The Yankees got a major boost during the opening week when Michael Pineda took the mound for his first MLB game since 2011. When we last saw Pineda, he was wearing a Mariners uniform and facing a sudden dropoff in velocity, the first sign of the shoulder woes that have kept him out of the big leagues since his days in Seattle.

Sporer Report: Looking Ahead to September Promotions

4

Paul Sporer

When rosters expand, American League clubs are likely to add these seven pitchers, who could also bolster your fantasy team down the stretch.

For the second straight week, the Sporer Report has an eye on September. On the one hand, I’m sad because we’re winding down the regular season. On the other hand, it’s been a tremendous season and the races to the finish in both MLB and my fantasy leagues should offer plenty of thrills, too. Speaking of those fantasy races, some of them will turn on guys who did little or nothing in the first five months of the season. I’ve got seven potential American League September call-ups—all pitchers—who could bring some solid value down the stretch.

This is some deep speculation, so keep that in mind when deciding whether or not to take the plunge. Those of your in 10- and 12-team mixers likely don’t need to pounce just yet and in fact shouldn’t pounce yet unless you’ve got remarkably deep rosters. Instead, use this as a cheatsheet of who to keep tabs on as we get closer to September 1. Those of you in deeper leagues might find a few of these guys already rostered, but otherwise should be available and if you have the roster space then you should consider getting the jump on your league mates. These are ranked in order of potential impact which accounts for the likelihood that they even get the call.

Overthinking It: The Montero-Pineda Trade in 2013

4

Ben Lindbergh

Sizing up a win-win trade that looks lose-lose so far.

(If you listened to last Friday’s episode of Effectively Wild, you’ve already heard me and Sam Miller discussing this topic. You’ve also heard me threatening to write about it. This is me making good on that threat.)

One year, four months, and five days ago, the Yankees traded Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi to the Mariners for Michael Pineda and Jose Campos. It was an unusually exciting trade, in that we hadn’t heard much about it before it went down, and it involved two of baseball’s most promising young players. As the internet scrambled to write up responses, a consensus emerged: both teams had done well to address an area of need. The Mariners, who hadn’t hit much since Edgar Martinez retired, had more trouble attracting hitters than pitchers to their big ballpark, and had just batted Miguel Olivo cleanup 43 times, and thus needed someone who wouldn’t look out of place in the middle of a major league lineup. The Yankees, who had a surplus of 1B/DH types signed to long-term contracts, needed a young starter to slot into their rotation behind CC Sabathia. If either team was believed to have “won” the trade, it may have been the Mariners, who wound up with the position player, generally the less risky part of any pitcher-for-position-player swap. But neither team was widely believed to have lost.

Episode 79: "Are Teams Becoming More Willing to Trade Their Young Players?"

Stephen Strasburg faced the Pirates for the first time since his major-league debut, and he reeled off a similar line.

The Thursday Takeaway
Merry Strasmas, Nationals fans. With the team coming off a disappointing three-game skid, Stephen Strasburg took the mound against the Pirates and played stopper with results strikingly similar to his major-league debut.

Back on June 8, 2010, Strasburg surpassed even the loftiest of expectations by striking out 14 batters without issuing a walk over seven innings in his first career start. Strasburg’s victims that night were the Pirates, who managed only two runs on four hits, one of which was a Delwyn Young homer.

There's more bad news in Boston, and Dustin McGowan has yet another setback.

Michael Pineda's labrum tear doesn't bode well for his future, but it's not the death sentence it used to be.

On Wednesday, the Yankees revealed that Michael Pineda had suffered a torn labrum, a devastating turn of events both for the 23-year-old righty and for the team that acquired him from the Mariners for top prospect Jesus Montero back in January. Pineda will miss the entire season and part of 2013, thinning the Yankees' surplus of starting pitching—and underscoring the fact that you can never have too much—while raising the question of whether they will ever get much value out of him.
