TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Yankees fifth starter candidate Michael Pineda struck out four and gave up one hit over two shutout innings in his first spring training start, New York's 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.

Pineda missed the last two seasons due to a right shoulder injury that required surgery. He pitched the fifth and sixth innings, ending his outing by striking out Miguel Cabrera.

The right-hander faced 10 batters in a simulated game Sunday, allowing two hits, striking out one and walking his final two hitters.

Former Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain struck out two, walked one and gave up a hit during a scoreless seventh in his first appearance at Steinbrenner Field since signing a $2.5 million, one-year contract with Detroit. He got a mixed reaction from the fans.
