Got into Chicago today with just enough time to check into the hotel, drive to the ballpark and discover that the New York Post is reporting Michael Pineda has been arrested for driving under the influence. From the Post:

Injured Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was busted for DUI in Tampa, Fla., on a busy road early this morning after a cop spotted his speeding, “weaving” Nissan SUV driving without its headlights on, authorities said.

The burly Pineda, 23, “had a fixed gaze and his eyes were bloodshot, watery and glassy,” a Tampa police officer wrote after pulling the 23-year-old hurler over at 2:35 a.m. on North Dale Mabry Highway.

Pineda has been largely out of sight and out of mind since his season-ending shoulder surgery. Obviously this is not the way the Yankees wanted him back in the news.
