NEW YORK (WFAN) - The news keeps getting worse for first-year Yankee Michael Pineda.

The 23-year-old right-hander was placed on the disabled list with tendinitis in his right shoulder on March 31, and it appears that he won’t make his Yankees debut in the Bronx any time soon.

According to the Yankees, the fireballer threw roughly 25 tosses on flat ground at Tropicana Field on Thursday, but he’ll remain at the team’s Minor League complex in Tampa, Fla. for the foreseeable future. He’s doubtful to return before the beginning of May.

The 6-foot-7, 260-pound starter went 9-10 with a 3.74 ERA and 173 strikeouts in his rookie campaign for the Mariners.
