Michael Pineda To Start Sunday in AAA

Lost in all the hoopla surrounding the trade deadline a bit of big news has been missed by a lot of people...

This Sunday, in Scranton, Michael Pineda will make his first rehab start against the Syracuse Chiefs.

That start will begin Pineda's 30-day minor league rehab assignment. Earlier this week Joe Girardi said Pineda would throw 60-65 pitches in his first rehab start. That means he'd likely bump that up to around 80-85 pitches in his second rehab start, and could very well be back with the Yankees five days after that.

If it weren't for the fact that the Yankees are in desperate need of rotation help I'd think Pineda's rehab would be longer.
