Stolmy Pimentel Starts His Rehab Work at Pirate City

Published:

Stolmy Pimentel made a rehab appearance today at Pirate City, throwing a scoreless inning against the Yankees’ extended Spring Training team. Pimentel was sitting 90-93 MPH with his fastball, getting a strikeout, then a 5-4-3 double play after giving up a single to the second batter he faced.

This was the first in-game appearance for Pimentel, who pitched a simulated game prior to this outing. His next rehab appearance is scheduled to be two innings. He said that he’s not sure of the plan after that, but thinks he might go to an affiliate after the next appearance.

Pimentel said that he is rehabbing as a reliever, rather than being stretched out. The two rehab processes are different. A starter’s rehab focuses on adding innings and pitches each time out. The rehab work for a reliever focuses on getting to a point of pitching back to back days, as well as multiple inning outings.

The right-hander is returning from a shoulder injury, which he said required rest, conditioning, and shoulder programs.
