New York Yankees starting pitcher Michael Pineda won't be back until August, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News has the story:

Bryan Hoch of explains Pineda hasn't experienced another setback, but rather has to start all over in the rehab process after suffering a setback a few weeks ago:

This shouldn't really be much of a surprise.

Pineda's setback means he has to start all over again in the rehab process. That means having a catch two or three times, followed by some bullpen sessions and then, finally, some rehab outings.

Pined hasn't pitched since April 23 when he was ejected from a game versus the Boston Red Sox for having pine tar on his neck. Before his injury woes and ejection, Pined was pitching to a 1.83 ERA and a 2-2 record.
