Michael Pineda battled injuries over the first three seasons of his Yankees career, but he finally looks like the exciting prospect New York was expecting to receive.
The 6-foot-7 right-hander inarguably has been the Yankees’ best starting pitcher in 2015. After eight innings of one-run ball Tuesday night against the Toronto Blue Jays, Pineda improved to 4-0 and lowered his ERA to 2.97. His 38 strikeouts rank fifth in the league, but more impressively, Pineda has walked just three batters in 39.1 innings. His 12.67 K/BB ratio is far and away the best in the American League.
