Pregame notes: “My velocity is there; everything is there”

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jun 01, 2014 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Michael Pineda

Here’s the way Michael Pineda described his most recent setback:

“I feel great last week,” Pineda said. “Especially Monday. I feel 100 percent Monday. I’m pitching two innings on Tuesday, perfect, everything is good. After the game, later in the night, I felt something. Next day, off. The second day I started to play catch and felt something. It’s not that bad. … It’ll be OK. I feel ready Monday and Tuesday, 100 percent, 100 percent, and I’m pitching. Everything is coming good. My velocity is there; everything is there.”

Pineda said the discomfort or pain or tightness — whatever you want to call it — is in the exact same place, in that upper-back muscle near the right shoulder. He said the part of his shoulder that was surgically repaired still feels fine, he’s just not quite past this latest injury. He made it seem much less significant than earlier in the year, but Joe Girardi indicated the Yankees might give Pineda more rest this time around.

“That’s a doctor’s call,” Girardi said. “I think the last time we shut him down 10 days before he picked up a baseball, and I’m sure it will be 10 days here, maybe a little more depending on what they feel. It’s a doctor’s call. It’s not what we want. It’s very similar to what he had about six weeks ago. It’s unfortunate, but we’ll try to get him going again.”

Pretty deflating situation for the Yankees, who expected Pineda to pitch in an intrasquad game today. It seemed it could be back within two weeks or so. Instead, he’ll now sit out again before beginning to play catch.

“I feel sad,” Pineda said. “I don’t have nothing to do. I’m keeping my head up, continuing my work, and that’s it.”

Francisco Cervelli• Francisco Cervelli. Remember him? What’s he up to? “He’s been running,” Girardi said. “He’s been preparing to play in games, basically. He’s run the bases, BP and caught and all that stuff. I don’t know when they have him playing in a game, but it’s pretty close.”

• Cervelli isn’t eligible to come off the 60-day disabled list until mid-June, but if he’s close to play in rehab games, then he’s fairly close to being activated. John Ryan Murphy has been terrific, but Girardi said Cervelli is probably coming back to the big league team in some capacity. “I plan on him being back here,” Girardi said. “… Obviously Cervy was playing extremely well too, and we’ll figure out what we’re going to do in that situation, how we’re going to use the guys and go from there. Hopefully the decision isn’t easy for me – that’s always the worst part of it – but Cervy was playing extremely well and gives us a lot of flexibility.”

• Random thought, but could the Yankees carry three catchers? Right now Zoilo Almonte is taking a roster spot without having any sort of clear role, and the team could use a right-handed hitter. Especially if Mark Teixeira can’t play every day, is it possible to carry a third catcher and kind of bank on Kelly Johnson and Yangervis Solarte’s ability to play the outfield if necessary? “We haven’t talked about it just because we knew he was on the 60-day DL,” Girardi said. “It’s mid-June (before he can come back). We just really haven’t talked about it. And a lot of times we don’t cross those bridges until you get close because things come up.”

• As for Teixeira, Girardi said the Yankees are going to give the cortisone shot two days — today and tomorrow — before evaluating Teixeira’s status. The Yankees face a left-handed pitcher on Tuesday, so they’d like to have Teixeira in the lineup that night. “It’s bothered him more facing a right hander more than a left hander,” Girardi said. “So we’ll see where he’s at Tuesday.”

• Girardi said it’s day-to-day who plays first base while Teixeira is out. He didn’t rule out putting Brian McCann back there at some point. “I have a number of guys who are candidates,” Girardi said. “It’s just a matter of who I decide to put there. As I’ve said all along, I think Kelly (Johnson)’s capable of handling it.”

• And if the cortisone shot doesn’t work for Teixeira? “I think you’re probably looking at more than a couple of days or three days rest,” Girardi said. “From a (health) standpoint, the sheath is repaired, so it’s not like you go in there and do something. It would just be more rest.”

• Today is the Yankee Stadium return of Phil Hughes. “He did a lot of good things for us,” Girardi said. “(In) 2009 he was an outstanding eighth-inning guy for us. The next year he wins 18 games. He wins 16 games for us another year. When I think of Hughesy, I think he was a good kid who was a great teammate and did some good things for us.”

    Previously I asked if Hughes and Joba pitching well can be just chalked up to change of scenery, or change of coaching staffs.

    Blake and JF both specifically mentioned park effect ( which I agree with) but I kept thinking that can’t be all of it.

    “I talked to Rick, and we started working on some things in spring training just to keep my — it sounds weird — body out of it as much as possible,” Hughes said. “Stay nice and easy. Don’t overthrow and fly open. You know, all those things you talk about. Staying nice and easy mechanically. All the aggression and effort is at the end.”

    In the end, Hughes feels as though these mechanical tweaks are what have put him in this position.

    “I probably credit most of it to mechanics,”Hughes said. “I’d get into modes the last couple years where I’d overthrow with guys on base or in big spots, even out of the windup. Any time you overthrow it’s going to cost you location a little bit. This is probably the most comfortable I’ve felt mechanically in as long as I can remember; even probably the minor leagues.”

    Pretty good read about Phil. And if you boo him, you …. He gave it everything he had while here.

  2. Tar June 1st, 2014 at 12:02 pm

    Trade Cervelli…… ASAP.

  3. JimK June 1st, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    repost:
    jmills, I was happy with the results and really expected Hughes to feed off that year, which he did, the following year is when went 18-8, and for the 1st 1/2 of the 2010 he was pitching lights out; the 2nd half he came down to earth and while still recorded 18 wins his second half starts were average at best.
    He was also 16-13 in 2012, which right now the Y’s would love to have any pitcher capable of winning 16 games, to pitch behind Tanaka, but as Sweetspot pointed out last year he was terrible and that was in his walk year. (Obviously this time I did check stats).

    Note: I got your message on “Dock of the Bay,” and agree it is a great song; my post was directed at tomingeorgia and Chicken who earlier in the night were blogging back and forth about a PBS show featuring early rock and R & B music. I know it was way too late for either of them to actually read it.

  4. austinmac June 1st, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    Of course Cervelli will be back. He is the veteran. What if we accidentally developed a young player? Can’t have that . We prefer the marginal vet to one with potential.

  5. bigdan22 June 1st, 2014 at 12:08 pm

    “Bigdan, if I recall the Y’s were not all that high on Cano, at least as far the PR hype machine went.”

    ——

    Internally I’m not sure what the Yanks thought of Cano when he was promoted. Apparently they did try to trade him at least once before. But Cano was not anointed by the Prospect Industry. I don’t think he ever made any top 100 list. And Refsynder is certainly similar in that regard. But Cano stepped right in a filled a position of need and excelled in pretty short order. That makes him, and Gardner, the only two position player prospect success stories for the Yanks in probably a decade or more. Refs could be the next.

    When ST started, I stated that I thought Refsynder and Sanchez were the two most important prospects in the Yankee system for this coming season. Sanchez as a potential trading chip and Refsynder as solving a potential long term need. So far Refsynder is doing every thing possible to show he might be a rare homegrown Yankee position player solution.

    For the Yanks to get to where they need to be, the farm and young players have to be an integral part of the plan. Looking at the Yanks this season is a daily reminder of the injury risk and under performance associated with old men.

    Let the kids play.

    repost:
    Jmills, you are right as Toronto has a Murder’s Row and they can get by with the type of pitchers that we have starting. When the Yanks had seven guys hitting over 20 homers, look at our pitchers like Vasquez, Burnett and Garcia and we still made the playoffs.. The Yanks need three dominant arms starting with their offense that will average 4 runs a game in order to play in October. Who on this blog thinks we can make it with these starters?

  7. JimK June 1st, 2014 at 12:09 pm

    Tar: Agree

  8. Moschitto June 1st, 2014 at 12:10 pm

    Toronto is carrying 3 catchers. they seem to be doing OK.

  9. UnKnown June 1st, 2014 at 12:10 pm

    Have fun YF, get a win!

  10. Tar June 1st, 2014 at 12:13 pm

    Hey Jim K

    BTW thanks for posting that link yesterday, I intended to mention it, but it slipped my mind.

  11. bigdan22 June 1st, 2014 at 12:14 pm

    Re-post (with additions):

    I spent the late evening playing the DVR and watching Tanaka. It really is a joy watching him pitch. I especially like how two or three times a game he’ll throw a pitch that he thinks is poor. The batter will miss it but Tanaka will spin around, jump in the air and throw a little fit like a six year old. I’m dying to know what he’s screaming out there. I also love how he’s really setting up his 4 seamer now for called third strikes. He’s an artist.

    Hopefully next year we can give Tanaka a better team to play with. I think he could lead this franchise on a nice two or three year run. Till of course he opts out.

    The possibility of a little run starting next year is really advanced by my boy Solarte. He is turning into a key strategic piece. Because his hitting appears now to be above-average, and because he can play 2nd and 3rd base, the gives the Yanks cover for both of those positions next year. The Yanks will want Arod to play 3rd next year and Solarte is cover for that. And second base as well while the Yanks await the arrival of what may be their most important position player prospect since Cano, Refsynder. So what Solarte does then is allow the Yanks to focus precious resources next off season on a position they have no internal solution for–Shortstop. That’s Solarte’s strategic importance and why, with Tanaka, he is one of the most valuable players in the entire organization.

    Tanaka and Solarte. Christmas in June.

    sadly this is true the yankees are more loyal to how many years on the back of a person’s baseball card than having their own kids develop and begin adding years to their own baseball card

  14. JimK June 1st, 2014 at 12:16 pm

    Tar, You are welcome.

  15. Missing Cano June 1st, 2014 at 12:17 pm

    Hopefully next year we can give Tanaka a better team to play with.

    i hope so too do you think the yanks would lester or shields as a 1A?

  16. Tar June 1st, 2014 at 12:19 pm

    “i hope so too do you think the yanks would lester or shields as a 1A?”

    Betances

  17. Missing Cano June 1st, 2014 at 12:21 pm

    “i hope so too do you think the yanks would lester or shields as a 1A?”

    Betances

    but why put that much pressure on Betances in his first year starting in the majors i would rather go Tanaka, Lester/shields, Betances, Sabathia, and then combo of Phelps/banuelos etc who ever impresses the most this way Betances is not counted on right from the get go and he can monster dominate from the middle of the rotation jmo

  18. austinmac June 1st, 2014 at 12:23 pm

    Hank,

    They either need to add a good starter or a bat and have Beltran to Teixiera contribute to compete. That seems obvious.

  19. Missing Cano June 1st, 2014 at 12:23 pm

    Red Sox call up cecchini

    i just looked up his stats (.278 avg under .700 ops) he appears to be same age as Refsnyder though he was in sox aaa i guess he is a better defender and he plays the premium position of ss

  20. nicholas June 1st, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    any word on Beltran he was scheduled for a 3rd straight day of live BP…if he is good after today, send him to Trenton for some rehab games

  21. Doreen June 1st, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    I don’t like to boo, but I get that if a player performs poorly he will be booed. This is an instance where a player is simply coming back as member of another team. That, to me, doesn’t warrant his being booed. It’s not as if he wasn’t booed off the mound several times last year. That was “appropriate” if you’re so inclined. Booing him today just for showing up is not, in my opinion.

    Or if he had bad-mouthed the Yankees once he left, I could understand that. He did not.

    Tar,

    about Phil and his mechanics. I’d bet the Yankees tried to do the same with him. I can’t believe they didn’t. But sometimes a new person in a new place, a fresh pair of eyes, will see something new, or a player in a new place will feel like it’s a fresh start, even if it’s the same old same old. I’m glad for Phil if whatever tweaks he made with is new team have taken hold.

  22. bigdan22 June 1st, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    “i hope so too do you think the yanks would lester or shields as a 1A?”

    —–

    There’s def a need for a 1A. No question about that. CC’s demise made that need a reality. We’ll have to see who is actually available. I personally like left-handers and Lester at the right price sounds great. But there’s folks who know more than I do that say Lester would never come to NY.

    Not only could the Yanks have better rotation for Tanaka next year, but they could have a much better infield as well. Much of that depends on the level of upgrade at SS. And of course Arod’s ability to contribute is a question. But I really can’t see how the infield won’t be better next year.

  23. Missing Cano June 1st, 2014 at 12:25 pm

    They either need to add a good starter

    i think they may need to add two maybe Hammels and one of the Reds pitchers Leake has good #s but i wonder if he is any better than phelps not sure maybe Latos is made available all Latos, Cueto, and Leake are FAS after 2015

  24. nicholas June 1st, 2014 at 12:25 pm

    Regarding KJO…when everyone is back (when key word) my hope is he is just DFA’d

    Also, Refsenyder could be a bandage for a few years, but I’m not sure he can turn the DP’s well enough to stay at second for the long haul.
    —-
    Yes I was going to mention that I have seen him unable to turn the DP – was unable to do so in a big moment in yesterday’s first game

    Really nice feature on JR being shown on the big board here at YS3

    enjoy the game.

    New thread

    Thanks, Tar on both counts. ;) I read that Hughes story — very interesting and he’s supposedly spotting a sinker… Should be a fun game.

    Unknown, will do!

    Tanaka next year, but they could have a much better infield as well.

    are you a jj hardy fan?

  27. nicholas June 1st, 2014 at 12:26 pm

    Boston is trying very hard to extend Lester now, but i hear he wants to hit free agency

  28. Tar June 1st, 2014 at 12:26 pm

    MC

    I wasn’t talking about where he slots so much, or who is in the rotation with him. More about where he will be as far as stats are concerned.

    I could care less if they slot him 5, as long as they get him in the rotation.

    And if they want to win the WS this year, they need to address the SP staff. Because it certainly is not good enough as is.

  29. PhiltheThrill June 1st, 2014 at 12:27 pm

    Girardi should have 0 to do with personnel.

  30. Missing Cano June 1st, 2014 at 12:27 pm

    I could care less if they slot him 5, as long as they get him in the rotation.

    ok that’s cool agree

  31. austinmac June 1st, 2014 at 12:28 pm

    Lester, Scherzer, , Shields and Cueto all have the potential to be available next off season and each has had success. Each would cost a ton and with AROD’s contract back on the books, we’ll see if Hal will spend. The last time he spent in 2009, he went dormant for four years.

  32. bigdan22 June 1st, 2014 at 12:28 pm

    I actually think Cervelli coming back is a good problem to have. Of course as long as it doesn’t result in John Ryan being traded which I don’t think it will. Chad’s point about three catchers is an interesting one. It may allow Cervelli to concentrate on being a backup first baseman as well. Lord knows the Yanks need that. But Murphy going to AAA and playing everyday is not a disaster either.

    The surplus of catchers on the 40 man is really an offseason problem.

  33. austinmac June 1st, 2014 at 12:30 pm

    I don’t know why one can’t be taught to turn a DP. Refsnyder played outfield in college so I hope he has at least an arm good enough for second.

  34. bigdan22 June 1st, 2014 at 12:31 pm

    “are you a jj hardy fan?”

    —-

    At this time I’m not sure. Since this is an offseason problem for me it’s best to wait till then and then pick and choose from what’s actually there.

    I have enough of a problem getting the Yanks through this season without more screwing up :)

    Doreen

    I mostly agree… but there is mounting evidence that some pitchers who have notoriously struggled while here…. have go on to pitch much better when they leave.

    AJ, Kennedy, Clippard, and now Joba and Hughes come to mind right off the bat.

    At some point its not going to be coincidental anymore.

  37. bruceb June 1st, 2014 at 12:33 pm

    What are the predictions for Phil Hughes today?

    Given our struggles of the last two days, I’d imagine he could have a very good afternoon. Perhaps we should forget about trying to build an inning and just swing for the fences?

  38. JimK June 1st, 2014 at 12:34 pm

    Lester would be a good addition to the Y’s pitching staff, the key issue is the length of the contract offer; at 31(next season) the Y’s offer should not exceed 3 years, 4 years, max. He is currently earning 13+million per season; depending on how he finishes out this season will determine on how much it will cost the Y’s to sign him, but either way, barring a serious injury, I see his low end request to be at 60 million for 4 years, and that is probably overly conservative.

  39. PhiltheThrill June 1st, 2014 at 12:34 pm

    austinmac,

    He probably can be and just needs reps. But I’ve heard he’s a little stiff at 2B, so I’m concerned that it won’t come. Sori was like that. Terrible on DP’s. Good teams turn their DP’s, bad teams don’t. I think if you look at Yankee history, you’ll find that many of their greatest teams not only turned their DP’s but they manufactured extra DP’s.

    Bill James was raving about how they would get greater than expected DP’s as a matter of course during certain eras.

    I hope Phil pitches a 1 hitter (a Jeter HR in the 9th) and loses 1-0.

  42. jmills June 1st, 2014 at 12:36 pm

    chicken was conversing about the difference in fields between NY and Minny for, Hughes. Another factor may be getting out of the Limelight ( no pun intended ). Some hockey players unlike Gilmour or Clark, just aren’t set to conduct things in Toronto.

  43. JimK June 1st, 2014 at 12:37 pm

    bruceb, Hughes has been the Twins best pitcher, and based on the Y’s recent history against quality starters (St. Louis), the Y’s will probably score 6 or more runs. If he had a 1-8 record and an ERA over 5.00 he would probably pitch a SO.

  44. bigdan22 June 1st, 2014 at 12:37 pm

    “I don’t know why one can’t be taught to turn a DP. Refsnyder played outfield in college so I hope he has at least an arm good enough for second.”

    —–

    Obviously the ability to turn a DP is a prerequisite for a ML 2b. Apparently Refs was never thought of as an professional prospect as an OF in college. It was always known that he’d have to go to the infield, probably 2b, to have a major league career. It would have helped Refs professional career and draft status if he had played 2b in college but he chose not to. Why? Because playing OF gave his team a better chance of getting to the college world series.

    Sign me up for this guy. Long term. But don’t rush him. Let him take step by step. Hence the value of Solarte.

    Let the kids play. The right ones.

  45. Tar June 1st, 2014 at 12:37 pm

    “Bill James was raving about how they would get greater than expected DP’s as a matter of course during certain eras.”

    Three keys to infield D. Superior SS, 2b who can make the pivot, 1b who can collect bad throws. Everything after that is pretty inconsequential.

    Actually that’s not James. That’s me.

  48. Hankflorida June 1st, 2014 at 12:42 pm

    austinmac June 1st, 2014 at 12:23 pm
    Hank,

    They either need to add a good starter or a bat and have Beltran to Teixiera contribute to compete. That seems obvious.

    I think they need two starters now to go with Tanaka because the bullpen will not be able to survive these four starters who cannot give them innings. Even with Beltran and Text and another bat this team is not going to produce an average of more then 5 runs a game to carry this starting staff. I truly believe believe that Cashman believes that he can shuttle players in from the minors to keep the pen fresh and win with this team as he came close with last year’s team which wasn’t as good.

  49. jmills June 1st, 2014 at 12:45 pm

    I liked having Fernandez and Alomar in ’93. I’m so glad the Mets wanted to flip Tony. Henderson for Steve Karsey was a great deal too. It was unfortunate that Karsey had those arm problems after starting out something like 4-0 in ’94.

  50. PhiltheThrill June 1st, 2014 at 12:45 pm

    We need 4 starters to go with Tanaka. It’s possible Pineda is one. It’s possible Phelps is. Maybe Whitley. But other than Tanaka, everyone comes with questions.

    Joeman,
    Good to see you even though it’s still crazy you want them to trade like their 2nd or 3rd best player ;)

  54. bruceb June 1st, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    JimK. Reverse psychology often works in baseball…let’s see whether that is the case this afternoon. I’m glad to see Phil doing well in Minnesota cos I think he’s a good guy.

    How ironic that he was surplus to requirements in the Bronx yet he’d be our number 2/3 starter right now?

  55. JimK June 1st, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    Bigdan, your assessment of a quality IF is spot on; and the current Y’s fall far short of that standard, which is especially important when the majority of your SP rely on location and contact. The Y’s high rate of K’s are attributed primarily to Tanaka, Betances, and DRob.

  56. Missing Cano June 1st, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    The Marlins announced that they have acquired right-hander Bryan Morris from the Pirates in exchange for the No. 39 overall pick in the 2014 draft. The No. 39 pick is Miami’s Competitive Balance Round A selection and is worth roughly $1.58MM.

    i hope the yanks do stuff like this in future years (if they can) morris appears to be a pen arm and the yanks will have plenty of those in the seasons to come to trade

    The last 2 successful Y’s, were Cano, and Wang; both arrived with little fanfare; unfortunately for Wang, the injury in Houston derailed his career after coming off back to back 19 win seasons.

    If they aren’t going to consider signing Morales and depending on Tex’s health, I’d like to see Cervelli spend some time at 1st. I’d love more power over there but he’s hit pretty well the past couple years when healthy and probably is already better than Johnson over there. Might not be a bad option and he’d have some real versatility too. Just don’t want him taking starts from Murphy behind the plate.

    And although many here may disagree, Gardner also fits into that category, except not to the same extent as Cano and Wang.

    Why not give Murphy some reps at 1st. I seem to recall he has played some third in the minors.

    Joeman,
    Good to see you even though it’s still crazy you want them to trade like their 2nd or 3rd best player ;)
    ————————————————-

    doesn’t say much for the team when Gardner is your 2nd or 3rd best player on the team…this team isn’t any better than last year my concern is that there’s no plan in place and it’s a year by year temp fix to plug holes …..infield is a mess along with SPing and CC just didn’t start his downfall this has been coming on for a few years…

    All this analysis, all these posts, trying to make sense out of the senseless…a lot of wasted ink. No one is going to magically “get rolling”, certainly not the Sorianos of the world. Poor execution every game, bad decisions all around. A big surprise to me, the most, who called an AL pennant this year. But it’s time to close the curtain on 2014 and focus on Jete. This years team isn’t even lovable losers, just a mosh mosh of band aids and electrical tape. Fire K Long already – there, I said it. What bad could it do?

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each and every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the identical comment. Is there any way it is easy to eliminate me from that service? Thanks!

    Nice post. I find out something alot more challenging on several blogs everyday. It’ll constantly be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice just a little something from their store. I’d prefer to make use of some with the content on my blog no matter whether you do not mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
