FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: MICHAEL PINEDA HAS "INSIDE TRACK" TO YANKEES' FIFTH STARTER'S JOB

                                                    

According to a team official, New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda has the "inside track" to be the team's fifth starter.  Pineda has not pitched in each of the last two seasons after various surgeries and injuries but he came into camp much lighter and in "great shape" according to the official.  Pineda was an All Star as a rookie back in 2011 with the Seattle Mariners.

Analysis:  Sleeper alert!  Pineda was once one of the best pitching prospects in baseball when coming up with the Mariners and he showed that ability with a dominant first half of 2011 before he tired in the second.  Pineda has strikeout stuff but would likely be only a first half play in 2014 since he has not pitched much in two seasons.
