Michael Pineda has torn elbow, seems headed for Tommy John

Michael Pineda has been recommended for Tommy John surgery, according to Yankees general manager Brian Cashman.

Pineda has been diagnosed with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. He will receive a second opinion, but surgery — which would keep him sidelined possibly until 2019 — is likely. Pineda will become a free agent after this season, meaning his stint in pinstripes is likely over.

This is the elusive peek at a Michael Pineda who doesn’t blink | New York Post

The Yankees, considering so many question marks in the rotation, would be hard-pressed to even make a strong run at the playoffs without excellence from the 28-year-old righty, whose motivations can hardly be stronger since he can be a free agent after the season.

Romine said he believes this performance will “help” Pineda when everything is not working quite as ideally as it did in the home opener, serving as a reminder to trust three pitches and his skills.

But as glorious as Pineda was Monday, he has a long way to go to gain full trust. Pineda does not have to be perfect — though he showed the stuff to chase just that. He just has to finally honor his outsized talent.
