Michael Pineda Silently Dominating On Mound For Yankees This Season (Video)

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.

Check out more analysis of New York’s pitching success in the video above.
