Update: Yankees GM Brain Cashman said they are hoping to stretch Michael Pineda out to about 50 pitches in his rehab start Sunday for Triple-A Scranton.
The Yankees still haven't set up a return timetable here, but given the progression of pitch-counts, he's still at least two weeks away. He's an interesting stash right now but is likely to be a very high risk/medium reward guy when he does finally come back.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
