Twins sign recovering RHP Michael Pineda for 2 years, $10M

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Twins have taken another step toward deepening their starting pitching.

This boost won't take effect for a while.

The Twins signed former New York Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda to two-year, $10 million contract Wednesday, a move made with 2019 in mind. Pineda is recovering from Tommy John surgery performed July 18, putting him on track to return to a major league mound possibly late in the 2018 season.
