Michael Pineda Injury Update: Pineda Says He's 'Feeling Much Better Now,' But Expected To Miss All Of April

New York Yankees starting pitcher Michael Pineda, who was placed on the 15-day DL prior to making a single regular season start with the team, is expected to miss the entire month of April according to Bryan Hoch of Yankees.com.

Pineda struggled with his velocity throughout spring training but denied feeling any pain. But after the 23-year old surrendered six runs in two and two-thirds innings during his final spring training outing, he complained of shoulder discomfort. An MRI revealed no structural damage but Pineda was diagnosed with shoulder tendinitis, a troublesome sign for the young pitcher the Yankees acquired in an offseason trade for Jesus Montero.

Pineda told the Newark Star-Ledger on Wednesday that he is "feeling much better now," but still does not know what he will do for rehab.
