Pineda, Cabral, and Rotation Updates

Thankfully Pineda isn't suffering from a serious injury, as it's just shoulder inflammation tendinitis. That did lead the team to place Pineda on the DL, so the team will be without their shiny new toy for about two weeks into the season.

Not sure if this injury made the decision for Girardi or not, but the Opening Day rotation has been set. We heard that CC Sabathia and Hiroki Kuroda would start games 1 and 2, and now we learn that the rest of the rotation will be Phil Hughes, Ivan Nova, and Freddy Garcia.

Speaking of boo-boos, Cesar Cabral is said to have a "significant injury". He was seen wearing a sling last night. That's too bad for Cesar who may have been in MLB this season, but it looks like that spot will go to Clay Rapada (not a bad consolation prize for Yankee fans). Fortunately Cabral is young (23), and has plenty of time to make a mark on the game. We just hope that he can bounce back from this injury, as Rule V rules would carry over to 2013 if we don't see him again in 2012.
