Michael Pineda will miss the first 36 games of the MLB regular season due to his drug suspension. He was originally going to miss the first 39 games of the 2020 campaign. (Star Tribune Sports on Twitter )
Pineda was suspended 80 games in September for taking a banned substance. It was reduced down to 60, but now he will only have to miss the first 36 games of the 2020 campaign. Pineda will only make a couple of starts in the shortened season and would only be worth using as a streamer towards end of the year.
