Advice: Pineda felt discomfort after his last bullpen session and was placed on the disabled list Thursday. The expectation is that he could be out for around a month.

Yankees placed RHP Michael Pineda on the 15-day disabled list with a right flexor forearm muscle strain.

Advice: It's a Grade 1 strain -- the least severe, but still quite serious. Andrew Miller missed a month earlier this year with the same injury. CC Sabathia is starting in Pineda's place Thursday night against the Rangers. It's time for the unusually-quiet Yanks to dive head-first into the trade market.

Michael Pineda is headed to the disabled list with a Grade 1 strain in his right forearm.

Advice: It's the same injury that Andrew Miller suffered earlier this summer and he wound up missing a month. Bryan Mitchell has been called up to start in Pineda's place on Thursday night against the Rangers. It's a tough blow for the Yankees, who are probably going to get much more aggressive on the trade market.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post was told that Michael Pineda is dealing with a right forearm muscle strain, not an elbow issue.

Advice: Sherman says it's not considered serious, but Pineda has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday night against the Rangers and it's not clear when he might be ready to pitch next. Bryan Mitchell will take the mound for the Yankees, who may now have a little more urgency to add a starter ahead of the July 31 trade deadline.

According to Mike Francesa of WFAN, Michael Pineda has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday night against the Rangers due to an elbow issue.

Advice: "He’s not pitching tonight, and he might be badly hurt," Francesa told WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Thursday afternoon. Pineda was rocked for five runs on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings last Friday against the Twins, which may have been a strong signal that something was wrong. The 26-year-old is probably going to undergo a range of tests on his right elbow. It could be time for the Yankees to jump into the trade market.

Michael Pineda was chased after giving up five runs over 5 2/3 innings Friday against the Twins.

Advice: Pineda wasn't fooling anyone on this night, allowing eight hits, including a two-run homer to Miguel Sano. He struck out four in the loss. After back-to-back bumpy starts, Pineda's ERA now sits at 3.97 on the year. He'll attempt to bounce back next week in a road start against the Rangers.
