Since returning from a bout of knee tendinitis, Pineda has posted a 3.24 ERA in 13 starts. Although typically a maddening option, the 30-year-old righty has settled into a steady hand - or at least a valuable source of WHIP - away from Yankee Stadium. Putting icing on the cake, his end-of-season schedule provides Pineda several opportunities to exploit some feeble AL Central competition. He's worth grabbing for the stretch run wherever still available.

The ERA certainly isn't pretty and Pineda is no longer a big-time strikeout pitcher, but he has been solid enough, especially in the WHIP department that you can use him in select starts as a streamer.
