Mariners put other side of Pineda trade on waivers

The New York Yankees traded for Michael Pineda in January 2012 in exchanged for top prospect Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi. As Pineda got injured rather quick, many Yankee fans started to complain about the bad deal. It took Pineda a long time before he was back on the MLB roster. In 2014 he won the fifth rotation spot with the Yankees.

Montero on the other side made the Mariners’ roster immediately in 2012 right from ST camp. In a season in which he played 135 games, he split time as a catcher and as a DH.
