MRI will shed light on Pineda's injury
ARLINGTON -- The Yankees will wait another day for more information on right-hander Michael Pineda, who was unable to complete an extended spring appearance on Saturday due to right shoulder discomfort.

Pineda is now scheduled to undergo a dye contrast MRI exam on Tuesday in New York, at the direction of team physician Christopher Ahmad. Manager Joe Girardi said that a scheduling conflict pushed back Pineda's examination.

"He's going to see the doctor [on Tuesday] and go through all his tests tomorrow," Girardi said. "At some point tomorrow evening, we should have something."

Pineda has been on the disabled list, retroactive to March 31, with what the team has termed right rotator cuff tendinitis. He suffered a setback during Saturday's start, cutting short his outing after just 15 pitches.
