Analysis: Pineda, 9-7 with a 3.97 ERA, missed all of 2012 and '13 following shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum in his pitching shoulder and was sidelined from April 23 to Aug. 13 last year with a right shoulder muscle injury.

Analysis: In 3 1-3 innings, Pineda allowed career highs of eight runs and 11 hits - his second poor start sandwiching an outing in which he took a no-hitter into the seventh. "His slider wasn't very good. His fastball was spotty," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "He struggled tonight."

Analysis: It was Pineda's shortest outing since being ejected in the second inning on April 23, 2014, for using pine tar on the mound. Pineda hadn't pitched since June 1 because the Yankees don't want to overwork him, but he wouldn't blame the extended rest for his subpar performance. "They tried to take care of me and give me a little rest," Pineda said. "What happened tonight, it happens with everybody."
