Yanks lose Pineda for year with labrum tear

ARLINGTON, Texas — Yankees RHP Michael Pineda will miss the season without pitching in a game because of a tear in the labrum of his right shoulder.

The Yankees said Pineda, 23, will have arthroscopic surgery Tuesday in New York and be out for about a year.

"It's a loss," manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday. "He was a guy that we were counting on this year. We traded for him, and unfortunately he's hurt."

New York acquired Pineda from Seattle in January, giving up top catching prospect Jesus Montero to get the All-Star.

Pineda felt weakness in his shoulder during an extended spring training game Saturday, which came three weeks after he had problems in a spring start.

In other Yankees news, LHP Andy Pettitte allowed three earned runs and seven singles in five-plus innings for Double-A Trenton in his third minor-league start then said he needed to build more strength.
