You can't help but wonder if the Mariners saw red flags and moved him because of it and / or if the Yankees medical staff missed something
That's where I'm at right now.
I actually liked the trade for the Yankees at the time. Pineda was exactly the kind of young pitcher they needed in their rotation. With Martin playing well and in his prime, it seemed like a solid move to trade Montero in that kind of deal.
