Yankees' Pineda has car window smashed by home run ball

It's too early to know if the trade for Michael Pineda is a bust or not for the New York Yankees but you can definitely call one window of the big righthander's car broken.

Pineda, who is recovering from shoulder surgery and is scheduled to pitch Monday in an extended spring game, came out yesterday after practice and discovered a batting practice home run ball crashed through the back side window on the passenger side of his white SUV.

“The ball is still in the car,’’ Pineda said of the blast from one of the Yankees minor leaguers. “I don’t know who hit the ball.’’

As for his shoulder, Pineda said he feels great.

“I’m really happy. I don’t think I will be in [extended spring] long because I’m feeling good, working hard,’’ Pineda, who has hit 95 on the radar gun during his last session, said.

He then drove off, saying he was going to get the window repaired. If it was only so easy to do that for his shoulder.
