Michael Pineda (shoulder) said that he is 100 percent healthy and will compete for a spot in the Yankees' starting rotation, the NY Post reports. "I'm going to compete for the rotation," Pineda said. "I'm the same Michael Pineda. I'm 100 percent now and my body is in good shape."
Since being traded from the Mainers to the Yankees, Pineda has yet to log a start in two years. In 28 starts in 2011, Pineda finished 9-10 while posting a 3.74 ERA, 1.10 WHIP with a 9.11 K/9. While it will be hard to believe he could post those numbers outside of the pitcher-friendly Safeco Field, he could still be a solid fantasy contributor considering the offense he will have to support him. That is, as long as he earns a spot int he rotation this Spring. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
