Michael Pineda struggles on Thursday

Minnesota Twins right-hander Michael Pineda coughed up six runs in 3 2/3 innings of work in a Thursday start against the Blue Jays. Toronto went on to win 7-4.

Fantasy Impact

Friday's Twins-Tigers game postponed

The game was postponed Thursday with inclement weather expected in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area Friday. It will be made up as part of a split doubleheader May 11.

Fantasy Impact

Adjust your lineups accordingly. Pineda will likely get pushed back a day while Tigers starter Daniel Norris will return to the bullpen; Detroit will roll with original weekend starters Tyson Ross and Jordan Zimmermann on Saturday and Sunday.

Michael Pineda picks up the win

Minnesota Twins right-hander Michael Pineda pitched five innings of two-run ball to earn a 6-2 win over the Phillies on Saturday. Pineda struck out five and walked one in the outing.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy owners will be happy to see he got the win after the Twins lifted him after the fourth inning in his first start, ruining any chance at a win. The big right-hander is looking good after missing over a season following Tommy John surgery. He is worth a waiver add wherever he's available.

MIchael Pineda looks great in first start

Making his first start since the 2017 season, Minnesota Twins right-hander Michael Pineda looked excellent in four shutout innings against the Indians. Pineda allowed just one hit and struck out five before being lifted for a reliever. Minnesota went on to win 9-3.

Fantasy Impact

The Twins understandably want to play it safe with Pineda but his fantasy owners surely would have liked to see him pitch another inning to put him in line for the win. Pineda looked good all spring and should be added in deeper leagues.
