No suspension for Pineda

MLB will not suspend Michael Pineda for the substance on Michael Pineda’s hand in Friday’s win over the Red Sox.

“The umpires did not observe an application of a foreign substance during the game and the issue was not raised by the Red Sox,” Major League Baseball’s executive vice president of operationsĀ Joe Torre said in a statement. “Given those circumstances, there are no plans to issue a suspension, but we intend to talk to the Yankees regarding what occurred.”

Pineda claimed the substance was dirt and sweat.
