Quick Hit: Pineda Named Fifth Starter

Well, it’s official and not a surprise.

Michael Pineda has been named the Yankees’ fifth starter. David Phelps, who was Pineda’s strongest competition for the spot and Adam Warren, who is starting tonight’s game, will be placed in the bullpen while Vidal Nuno will also be considered a relief role.

Do you know what this means? It means real baseball is almost here!
