Tex back! Pineda on the mound! Yankees baseball!

After getting the series off to a winning start yesterday, the Yankees will send Michael Pineda to the mound as they go for a series win against the Twins. This game also features the return of Mark Teixeira, who has been activated from the DL. Maybe the time off will have done Teixeira some good, and he'll find his bat. Maybe not, but you never know until you try.
