Yankees | Weighing options for Michael Pineda

The New York Yankees are considering using SP Michael Pineda (shoulder) out of the major league bullpen whenever he's eligible to return, according to a baseball official with knowledge of their thinking. He's more likely to stick at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when he's ready to return, however. He's still working through his rehab and had a rough go Sunday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: On the other hand, it's realistic to think he'd overtake David Phelps or Ivan Nova eventually, but that might not come until 2014 if Pineda can't prove he's healthy and the other SPs remain at least competent. Still, Pineda is a decent deep-league stash on his talent alone.
