Analysis: Pineda leads the AL with 10.6 strikeouts per nine innings, but his 4.82 ERA is among the league's worst. ''It's mind-boggling,'' Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. ''It just doesn't make sense. And you look for reasons, and believe me, we'll look, and I'm sure we'll look a long time this winter.'' Pineda went winless in his final 10 starts of the year.
