Around the Empire: Yankees news - 9/20/15

Shreve needs to be "resuscitated," A-Rod not comfortable at first, and is Michael Pineda finally healthy?

Brian Blanco/Getty Images | Barry M. Bloom: With an absolutely dominating performance by Michael Pineda yesterday, are his injury woes from this season finally behind him? | Ryan Hatch: Earlier in the season, Chasen Shreve kicked off the big three in the Yankees bullpen. Lately, with his massive struggles, Justin Wilson has taken that role. GM Brian Cashman said that Shreve needs to be "resuscitated."

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Whenever the Yankees play an interleague game, the question of what will happen to Alex Rodriguez always pops up. The arguable Yankees MVP doesn't have the tools necessary to play third base, and according to Joe Girardi, A-Rod doesn't look comfortable at first, so if he plays in an interleague game, it would be in a pinch-hitting role.

ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: Fans are very concerned with the fact that the Yankees currently sit in a wild card spot and not in the division lead. Cashman said that as long as the Yankees win it all, he doesn't care how they get there. | Ryan Hatch: Girardi, meanwhile, is not a fan of the one-game playoff that comes with the wild card spot, and he has a solution to it.
