PinedaMichael Pineda will be shut down for 10 days and miss a total of three to four weeks after today’s MRI showed a Grade 1 strain of the teres major muscle in his upper back. It’s basically a muscle kind of between his shoulder and his lat.

Pineda felt discomfort after one inning of a simulated game today in Tampa. He flew back to New York and was examined by Dr. Chris Ahmad tonight. It was Ahmad who made the final diagnosis.

Through a team spokesman, general manager Brian Cashman said he wasn’t sure yet whether Pineda would immediately go on the disabled list or wait until after his current suspension is over.
