Michael Pineda Agrees on 2-Year Contract with Twins After 4 Years with Yankees

He didn't make a single start in 2012 and was limited to minor league action in 2013 after having surgery for a right labrum tear.

Pineda was an All-Star and finished fifth in the American League Rookie of the Year voting in 2011 with the Seattle Mariners .

Still, Pineda had established himself as a solid mid-rotation starter and was poised to earn a lucrative contract upon the conclusion to the 2017 season until his year ended prematurely.

He's no longer a young pitcher with boatloads of potential, as he'll have turned 30 by the time the 2019 season starts.

Last offseason, the Tampa Bay Rays signed him to a two-year, $4 million deal that had a club option in the second year.
