The Minnesota Twins announced they signed former Yankees RHP Michael Pineda to a two-year, $10 million contract.
Pineda had a roller coaster run over four years with the Yankees, and it reached its peak last season when he needed to undergo Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm. He started 17 games last season, owning a 4.39 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 96.1 innings pitched.
Over his four seasons with the Yankees, Pineda had a 4.16 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 514 strikeouts over 89 starts.
The 28-year-old will make $2 million in his first season with the Twins followed by $8 million in 2019.
