FanGraphs | Jeff Sullivan: Michael Pineda leads the majors in fWAR, so is there a secret to his magic?

NY Daily News | Bill Madden: After having New York hype being ruled by Matt Harvey for a couple years, the Yankees are looking for their own superstar pitcher, and he may have been found in Michael Pineda.

NY Post | Dan Martin: After struggling in his first five starts, people wondered what was going on with CC Sabathia. Despite his initial struggles, pitching coach Larry Rothschild said that there is nothing that needs to be fixed in Sabathia's game. | Ryan Hatch: Along with his 16-K performance against the Orioles, Big Mike also threw a five-hitter over eight innings versus the Blue Jays last week. These numbers were good enough to get him named Player of the Week for the American League.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Yesterday afternoon, Masahiro Tanaka had a far catch with Larry Rothschild prior to the game. Later today, Tanaka will throw his first bullpen session after suffering his injury, which is a good sign for his rehab.
