Pineda Throwing In Low 90's In Simulated Game

Joel Sherman tweeted that Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was throwing in the low 90's in his simulated game earlier in the week, his first since his major shoulder surgery last season. Joe Girardi has been quoted in saying that they did not have a radar gun on Pineda for his sim game so I am not sure where Sherman is getting his information from but if it is true that is an absolute great sign for Pineda and the Yankees. Michael is hoping to start his 30 day rehab window sometime in May to be on track for a June return to the Yankees rotation. It will be interesting to see how well Ivan Nova and David Phelps are pitching at that time because that could make the decision for Joe Girardi very difficult come June, not that that is a bad problem to have.
