Joe Girardi has not officially announced it yet, but Michael Pineda has won the Yankees No. 5 starter's job, completing a successful comeback from major shoulder surgery in a little less than two years.
Pineda is flying up draft boards. He also last threw a pitch in the big leagues in 2011. No matter how good he looks right now how can you feel strongly about rostering a guy that hasn't thrown a big league pitch in two years that were missed due to injury? A risky proposition as anything more than a flier in the late rounds.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Ravens announce extension for cornerback Jimmy Smith.
The deal is said to give him an average of just under $10 million per year. Smith was heading into the final year of his rookie contract – a reported $6.9 million option that the team picked up before last season. Considering his level of play and contributions on defense, it would have been quite the bargain but probably would have left a bad taste in the cornerback's mouth. He should be all smiles though heading into camp now with a new deal. Analysis: Howard Bender
