Welcome to the O.K. Corral, Pittsburgh
Well, it didn’t take long for Doc Halladay to get into mid-season form.
The big righty mowed down the Pirates today, going eight easy innings, allowing two hits, no walks, and no earnies. He threw in five K’s for the hell of it.
That man is ice-cold.
Stop asking about my velocity.
Brian Cashman’s biggest(both figuratively and literally) acquisition in quite some time, is starting to get folks in Yankeeland a little worried.
Getting beaten up by a solid Phils lineup, while still unable to get his fastball into the mid-nineties is one thing. Complaining of shoulder soreness is quite another. The 23-year old will head for an MRI today.
Pineda was already rumored to be the odd man out of Joe Girardi’s rotation when the Yanks break camp. Now, the Bombers have to be hoping that’s the least of his problems.
UPDATE: Yanks place Pineda on the 15-day DL with shoulder tendonitis.
