2017 FANTASY BASEBALL WINTER MEETINGS BREAKING NEWS: MICHAEL PINEDA NETS TWO-YEAR DEAL WITH TWINS

In the latest post-Tommy John contract world, the Minnesota Twins inked free agent starter Michael Pineda to a two-year deal worth $10 million.  Like previous TJ victims such as Drew Smyly and Nathan Eovaldi, the Twins gave Pineda a two-year deal to cover the rehab year and then the full-year return the following season.  Prior to the surgery, Pineda was an electric but very inconsistent pitcher with the New York Yankees whose 200-K ability was overshadowed by a massive home run problem.  He is certainly moving to the right ballpark to help lessen the impact on the long ball as Target Field has always leaned toward the side of the pitcher.  For now Pineda has no fantasy baseball value this season outside of AL-only formats since he won't return until August but he could possibly help down the stretch in all leagues from that point onward given his strikeout ability.
