New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda facing Tommy John surgery

Pineda is getting a second opinion, Cashman added. The Yankees have already placed him on the disabled list.

The injury woes for Michael Pineda continue, as it was announced Friday that the New York Yankees pitcher has a partial UCL tear in his right elbow, according to Scout.com's Max Wildstein. And was only this season that he appeared to be in a full recovery mode pitching for the Pinstripes with an 8-4 record and a 4.39 ERA. The 28-year-old will become a free agent after this season, meaning his stint in pinstripes is likely over. He was traded to the Yankees after that 2011 campaign.

Previous year marked the first time Pineda hit the 30-start barrier in his career. Pineda went for tests on Saturday, the day after telling the Yankees about the pain, and the injuries were discovered.

ESPN is reporting that Cashman said Adams could be a starting option at some point.

The Yankees have lost 17 of their last 25 games.

Brian Cashman must be thinking he's been bitten by a snake, but this life in baseball.

Rookie lefty Jordan Montgomery was recalled from Triple-A Scranton and will start Friday's series opener against Boston.
