Don't like this deal.

Few things:

This lineup is aging and could use another impact bat.

Pineda is not proven. He has high upside but is not proven.

He's risky. Pitchers tend to flame out while hitters are safer bets.

Pineda still needs development. He's not a finished product.

This worries me because the Yankees track record of developing starting pitching isn't good.

Pineda pitched in Safeco. Along with the rest of the AL West pitcher friendly parks.
His numbers will not be as good in smaller parks in the AL East.

Also he will be facing better lineups.
