PITCHING MATCHUP: Twins RH Michael Pineda (2-2, 6.21 ERA) vs. Yankees RH Domingo Germán (5-1, 2.56)

Pineda opened the season with three straight solid outings, including victories over Philadelphia and Detroit, but he has regressed over his last three turns, including back-to-back starts against Houston. He was tagged for five runs on nine hits over five innings last time out and has been charged with 15 runs and 24 hits over 14 innings in the past three outings. Cameron Maybin is 5-for-16 against Pineda, who made his lone start against New York as a rookie in 2011.

The 26-year-old Dominican also won his previous turn with a superb performance against the Los Angeles Angels, tossing a season-high 6 2/3 innings and permitting an unearned run on four hits. Cruz has a home run in three at-bats off German, who had made a pair of relief appearances against the Twins.
