Pineda allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks with six strikeouts over 5.1 innings in a no-decision Monday against Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the ninth time this season Pineda has allowed five runs or more in just 25 starts. When he is taking such beatings in over a third of his starts, it doesn't matter that Pineda is one of the nastiest pitchers in the game. Pineda induced 13 swinging strikes in 83 pitches and it wasn't enough to keep runs off the board. Similarly, Pineda's 160 strikeouts in just 141.2 innings has resulted in just a 5.02 ERA for him this season, as he has been too inconsistent to make his big-time stuff count.

Pineda limited the Blue Jays to just four hits without a run in five innings Tuesday, striking out two and walking none before having his night cut short by a 44-minute rain delay and watching the bullpen blow a 6-0 lead.

EDGE Analysis

Pineda has found success pitching to contact more in his last two starts, striking out just five while giving up only two runs over 11 innings. He was really cruising before the rain came, and would've been able to pitch deep into the game after needing just 68 pitches to get through five frames. This no-decision was a terribly unlucky result considering how good Pineda was looking, and just how bad the bullpen had to be to deny him a win. The right-hander should be well-rested for Monday's start in Seattle given that he'll be working on an extra day of rest following a shortened outing.

Pineda (6-10) lasted six innings, allowing two runs on eight hits while walking two and striking out three in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Pineda was able to manage a quality start after failing to do so in his previous two outings. The 27-year-old flamethrower has been disappointing in terms of wins and ERA, but his strikeout and walk rates are superb. If he could just somehow keep the ball in the yard (1.44 HR/9), he'd be worth starting in most leagues.

Pineda (6-10) gave up four earned runs on six hits and a walk over six innings in Friday's 13-7 victory over the Indians. He struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

He had the luxury of being staked to a large lead, as the Yankees jumped out to a 6-0 advantage over the Indians after just three frames. Pineda was also impressively efficient, throwing 69 of 97 pitches for strikes, notching first-pitch strikes on 16 of 23 batters and inducing 11 swinging strikes overall. He's pitched much better from early June onward after starting off the season 2-6, as he's managed a 4-4 record and lowered his ERA from 6.92 to 5.17 since that point. He'll take on the Red Sox next Thursday at Fenway.

Pineda (5-10) gave up five runs on six hits and four walks over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Rays, striking out eight.

EDGE Analysis

He cruised through the first three innings before Tampa started to tee off on him. Pineda's now been tagged with a five-spot in three of five starts in July, but his 5.13 ERA is actually marginally lower than it was when the month began, which tells you what kind of season he's been having. He'll try to right the ship Friday at home against the Indians.

Pineda (5-9) allowed just one run on five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over seven innings in a win Monday over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Pineda recorded eight or more strikeouts for the sixth time in his past eight starts. He owns a stellar 64:14 K:BB over just 47.1 innings in that stretch to go with a 3.42 ERA. Home runs are still a problem -- including George Springer's solo shot Monday night, he has now allowed seven in those eight starts -- but he is showing improvement after a dreadful start to the season.

Pineda (4-9) tossed six shutout innings in Wednesday's win over the Orioles, allowing just five hits and two walks while striking out eight.

EDGE Analysis

The big righty had given up 10 runs in his last 11 innings, but the Orioles lucked into seeing his good side. Pineda still owns an ugly 5.25 ERA thanks to having been blown up for five-plus runs on seven separate occasions among his 19 starts. That 127:29 K:BB suggests he should be facing better times if he can consistently keep the ball in the park, as his 1.52 HR/9 is easily the highest mark of his career. Pineda will make his next start against the Astros on Tuesday.

Pineda (3-9) surrendered five earned runs on five hits and a walk over five innings in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Red Sox. He struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

The hard-throwing right-hander went five innings and gave up five earned runs for the second straight start, dropping his third consecutive decision in the process. Pineda was once again done in by the long ball, giving up a 398-foot solo blast to Ryan Hanigan in the third inning, and two-run homers to Travis Shaw and Xander Bogaerts in the fifth and sixth innings. While he looked like he'd figured things out during a month of June in which he produced a solid 2.75 ERA, Pineda is once again struggling over his first pair of July starts. The 27-year-old will try to right the ship next Wednesday versus the Orioles.

Pineda (3-8) allowed five runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five over six innings to take the loss Wednesday at the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Pineda was rocked for four runs in the second inning while the Yankees' offense was unable to provide him any support, leading to his eighth loss of the season. This was the first time he's allowed more than three runs in a start over his last seven starts, and his ERA stands at 5.38 on the year. His next start will be after the All-Star break.

Pineda (3-7) pitched excellent in a no-decision against the Rangers on Thursday. He allowed just one run on two hits while walking three and striking out a season-high 12 batters.

EDGE Analysis

Largely disappointing through the season's first couple of months, Pineda put together a solid June in which he lowered his overall ERA in each outing. In 30 innings this month, the righty logged a 3.00 ERA while notching 37 strikeouts and just five walks. Unfortunately, the 27-year-old was only able to walk away with one victory in his six June starts.
