Eric Bledsoe (knee surgery) said that he'll return this season "if it's possible,".
Sort of a cryptic response from Bledsoe since everybody fully expects him to be back sometime around the All-Star Game on February 16th. The Suns desperately need him back as their offense has struggled since he went down. The Suns were 16-8 with Bledsoe but have slipped recently going just 7-9 since his departure.ANALYST: Jeff Mans
Michael Pineda went 6 2/3 innings, allowed one run, and struck out eight batters, as the Yankees completed the sweep of the Royals on Wednesday afternoon.
Going all the way back to May 10th, Pineda probably had his best career start, as he went seven innings, allowed one run, and struck out an astounding 16 batters. After his career day, Pineda went on to struggle for the next two games, allowing a combined nine runs, while striking out a mere five batters. After today’s game, it finally appears that Pineda recovered his form, as he lasted 6 2/3 innings, allowed one run, and struck out eight batters. So long as Pineda stays healthy, he has the look of a guy that can anchor your fantasy rotation, with an electric fastball and an unhittable slider. Consider his previous two starts an exception rather than the narrative of his otherwise excellent 2015 season so far. Analysis: Dom Murtha
