Pineda allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven over 5.2 innings but had to settle for a no-decision in Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

He turned in a better effort than in his prior start against the Angels last Wednesday, settling down after spotting them a 3-0 lead and giving the Yankees a chance to come back to tie the game in the sixth inning to get Pineda off the hook for the loss. The right-hander will next take the mound Sunday at home against the Rangers.

Pineda allowed five runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out just two batters over six innings during Wednesday's loss to the Angels. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

After blanking the Red Sox through seven frames with eight strikeouts in his previous start, this was a discouraging follow up from Pineda. He sports a 7-3 record, 3.71 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 8.9 K/9, but despite the solid results, Pineda might never live up to his potential and become a reliable matchup-proof option. He projects to face the Angels again in his next start, but this time it'll be at Yankee Stadium where Pineda is 6-1 with a 1.96 ERA.

Pineda (7-3) pitched seven innings, allowing one unearned run on four hits and two walks while striking out eight in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

It was a nice bounce-back performance from Pineda, as he was coming off his worst start of the season his last time out. The 28-year-old lowered his ERA to 3.39 and is working to an impressive 9.4 K/9. He'll look to keep up his momentum next time out, currently slated to come Wednesday against the Angels.

Pineda (6-3) allowed five runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out one across five innings to take the loss Friday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Pineda gave up a pair of homers in the first inning, falling behind 3-0, leading to his third loss of the season. After holding opponents to three earned runs or fewer in each of his five May starts, he started off June on a sour note, raising his ERA from 3.32 to 3.76, though he's still a solid mid-range fantasy starter. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Red Sox.

Pineda (6-2) allowed three runs -- two earned -- on three hits and three walks while striking out five batters over six innings during Sunday's win over Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

It was just the second start all season that Pineda didn't allow a home run, and if he can continue to limit the long ball, the 28-year-old righty should keep piling up wins. The Yankees are the highest-scoring team in the American League, and Pineda's 10.0 K/9 and 50.9 groundball rate have paved the way to a 3.32 ERA. He lines up to face Toronto at the Rogers Centre in his next trip to the hill.

Pineda (5-2) allowed two runs on six hits and one walk across 6.1 innings during Monday's win over the Royals. He struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

Pineda was sharp in this one, throwing 71 percent of his pitches for strikes and cruising for the most part, aside from a bumpy third inning in which he allowed two runs on three hits. He has been excellent after a rough first outing of the season, posting a 2.88 ERA, a 9.9 K/9 and a 5-1 record in eight starts during that span. Pineda, who finally seems to be settling in as the front-line pitcher many thought he would be, will look to continue his fine form Saturday against the Athletics.

Pineda (4-2) allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings in Wednesday 11-7 win over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees had piled up 10 runs by the fifth inning, allowing Pineda to cruise to an easy victory despite throwing only 57 of his 98 pitches for strikes. The 28-year-old righty has now provided three straight quality starts, although he needed a couple of errors from Chase Headley to get there Wednesday, and his 55:8 K:BB in 47.1 innings on the season remains elite. Pineda will get to face Kansas City's struggling offense again at home Monday.

Pineda (3-2) allowed three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out seven batters during Thursday's loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

This was a solid outing, as Pineda was simply outdone by Dallas Keuchel on Thursday. Pineda is off to a solid start with a 3.27 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 10.9 K/9, and perhaps most impressively, he's cut his BB/9 down to 1.3 from the 2.7 mark he posted last year. Additionally, after allowing a .353 BABIP in 2016, opposing hitters own a .289 mark this year, which is at least partially the result of upping his groundball rate to 51.4 percent. Yankee Stadium is a difficult pitching venue, and Pineda might be overachieving, but with the current state of the starting pitcher pool, he's a rare trustworthy fantasy option. Pineda projects to make a road start against Kansas City in his next trip to the hill.

Pineda (3-1) allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out six across six innings, but earned no decision Friday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Although Pineda pitched very well, he gave up solo homers to Kris Bryant and Kyle Schwarber and he left the game with a 2-0 deficit, but the Yankees bats came alive in the ninth inning to take him off the hook for a potential loss. His solid season continues, as he's not held opponents to two or fewer runs in four of his last five starts, and he boasts a solid 3.12 ERA to go with a 0.98 WHIP. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Astros.

Pineda (3-1) allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out eight over 5.1 innings to earn the win Saturday against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Pineda fired five innings of shutout ball before getting into a bit of a jam in the sixth frame, but after throwing 100 pitches, he was removed from the contest. He's now held opponents to two or fewer runs in three of his last four outings while posting at least six strikeouts in every one of his 2017 appearances, and he's emerging as a strong fantasy option. He'll make his next start Friday against the Cubs.
