Yankees announced that they have placed RHP Michael Pineda on the 15-day disabled.
This was bound to happen and the Yankees decided today was the day. Clayton Kerhsaw has missed over a month of action due to the same injury. Pineda, who is in the midst of serving a 10-game suspension for his use of pine tar, suffered the injury while throwing a simulated game on April 29th. He had been shut down since that game but it seems he'll need more time to recover. David Phelps has been filling in for Pineda since the pine tar incident.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
