SP Andy Pettitte has retired, and SPs Hiroki Kuroda and Phil Hughes are impending free agents. The team is hopeful Michael Pineda will be able to lock up a spot in spring training, and SPs Vidal Nuno, David Phelps and Adam Warren are other potential candidates to compete for spots barring any help from outside of the organization.

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.
