Quick hit: Pineda’s looking good

According to Joel Sherman, Michael Pineda‘s fastball was averaging at 93 m.p.h. today in an extended spring training start.

He will have one more start then go on a 30-day rehab assignment after which the Yankees will decide whether or not to bring Pineda up to the big club or to keep him in Triple A.

This comes on the heels of the news that Jesus Montero, the other big name involved in the infamous Friday the 13th trade of January 2012 has been sent down to Triple A by the Mariners.
