Michael Pineda hits 94 in third rehab start

Two years ago, Michael Pineda was one of the best young starters in the world, and Jesus Montero was one of the best prospects in the world. If we look at pictures of ourselves back then, will we all be wearing butterfly collars and bell-bottoms? Seems like another world.

Pineda's back making rehab starts, though. The first two went well, and in his third one on Tuesday night, he's hitting 94 with his fastball. Here's a video taken by Trenton Thunder beat writer Mike Ashmore:


Good signs all around. Ashmore has uploaded the whole first inning here. You can hate the Yankees. But you can't hate a young pitcher making his way back from shoulder surgery. Until he's a Yankee. Then you can hate him again.
