UPDATES & NEWS
Michael Pineda (shoulder) has not resumed throwing yet.
Pineda suffered a setback in his rehab process and was moved to the 60-day DL after the Yankees acquired Wade LeBlanc on June 3rd. Some reports state that Pineda is not expected to return until early July but the longer it takes for him to begin a throwing program the likelihood of the return date being pushed back increases.

Waiting on Pineda is a frustrating thing for fantasy owners especially considering the question marks surrounding him when he does eventually come back. If you are waiting on him, it should only be because you have plenty of bench space and it's costing you nothing to do it. However, if you need that roster space, it's time to let him go.

Matt Andriese gave up four runs over 3 1/3 innings as the Rays lost to the Yankees 5-3 on Sunday.
The Yanks hit Andriese up pretty good on Sunday, but it wasn’t like they absolutely shelled him. Four runs on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings isn’t pretty, but it also isn’t catastrophic. In any case, manager Kevin Cash decided to pull the 25-year-old right-hander after only 63 pitches, leaving the rest of the game up to the bullpen. He now appears to have a spot in this Ray’s rotation, so he needs to work on stretching himself out and keeping the ball on the ground, rather than getting hit hard or getting into deep counts. As of now, he’s not worth a fantasy roster spot, so look for starting pitching help somewhere else on the waiver wire. Analysis: Dom Murtha
