All-Decade Yankees Starting Rotation

Michael Pineda, RHP

When the New York Yankees acquired Michael Pineda from the Seattle Mariners in 2014, they thought they had the future of Yankee pitching secured. In his first 13 starts with the Yanks, he delivered the good, pitching to a stellar 1.89 ERA and a 0.825 WHIP.

Since then, however, Pineda’s career with the Yankees was average. It pretty much ended when he was caught using pine tar against the Boston Red Sox in 2014.


Hiroki Kuroda, RHP

Finally, we round up the All-Decade Yankees rotation with Hiroki Kuroda, who delivered for the Yankees three wildly identical seasons.

  • 2012: 33 GS | 3.32 ERA | 1.165 WHIP
  • 2013: 32 GS | 3.31 ERA | 1.162 WHIP
  • 2014: 32 GS | 3.71 ERA | 1.136 WHIP

Many thought Kuroda would return for a fourth season, but instead, he decided to retire at the age of 39. His time with the Yankees won’t be remembered very fondly because they missed the postseason 2/3 years. However, that was despite Kuroda’s performance.
