Former Mariners Pitcher Michael Pineda Tears Right Labrum, Likely Done For Season

The Seattle Mariners traded the promising Michael Pineda away to the New York Yankees along with Jose Campos for Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi. It was a strange move for Seattle at the time, as Pineda had made the All-Star team as a replacement in his first season.

It's not looking quite as strange anymore.

Pineda had missed the start of the season with tendinitis, but now it looks as if he'll be out for far longer. Torn labrums take a long time to recover from; he could be out a year and it might be awhile before he returns to form.

Did the Mariners know anything about Pineda's health status before they made their trade? They've clearly denied that there would be any issues.
