John Farrell says Michael Pineda crossed pine tar line

BOSTON -- After watching New York Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda blatantly used pine tar on his hand in a 4-1 win on April 13 at Yankee Stadium, Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said he had no choice but to call for home plate umpire Gerry Davis to inspect the right side of Pineda's neck in the second inning Wednesday at Fenway Park. What Davis found was an obvious streak of pine tar used by the pitcher to gain an advantage on the grip of the baseball. The blatant use of pine tar represented an obvious violation of the rule of applying a foreign substance to the ball and Pineda was immediately ejected. After being warned after his previous violation, Pineda faces an almost certain suspension of at least eight games from Major League Baseball for the latest infraction.
