Pineda, who missed the past two seasons after right shoulder surgery, has nine strikeouts in 4 2-3 scoreless innings overall. Pineda has posted the best numbers among the Yankees’ starting pitchers in spring training, recording nine strikeouts in four and two-thirds scoreless innings. Pineda left after having reached his pitch count with two out in the inning and runners on first and second after issuing a walk to Jonathan Schoop and an infield single to Alex Gonzalez. Pineda hit 92 mph twice and most of his fastballs were clocked in the 89-90 range. But he threw strikes 27 out of 48 pitches and his breaking ball appeared sharp, especially an 81-mph curve that struck out Quintin Berry in the third. The Orioles had runners on first and second with one out in the first, after back-to-back singles by Alex Gonzalez and Henry Urrutia, when first baseman Steve Pearce ripped a long drive to left. The 25-year-old right-hander is competing with David Phelps, Adam Warren and Vidal Nuno for the final rotation spot behind CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, Masahiro Tanaka and Ivan Nova.
