Michael Pineda: Second Half Return in 2013 Targeted

Rotowire.com
Update: Pineda is not expected to return until the second half of the 2013 season, ESPN New York reports.

Recommendation: Pineda has been slow to recover from arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn labrum that caused him to miss all of last season. "We have to keep him off our radar for now," Yankees GM Brian Cashman said. "We're talking June of next year, the second half of next year." The trade of Pineda has been an abject disaster thus far for the Yankees, who were forced to part with top prospect Jesus Montero in a deal consummated during the past offseason.
