Yanks pitcher Pineda ejected for substance on neck

BOSTON (AP) Less than two weeks after pitching against Boston with what appeared to be pine tar on his pitching hand, the New York Yankees' Michael Pineda was ejected from a game against the Red Sox on Wednesday night after umpires found a foreign substance on his neck.

Boston manager John Farrell didn't alert umpires about brown goo on the lower part of Pineda's right palm during a 4-1 win over Boston at Yankee Stadium on April 10. Photos of Pineda's pitching hand that night sparked a debate about pitchers' use of sticky substances to get a better grips in cool weather.

With two outs and a 1-2 count on Grady Sizemore on Wednesday, Farrell left his dugout to talk with plate umpire Gerry Davis, who went to the mound. Davis touched the right side of the pitcher's neck with his index finger then ejected Pineda as other umpires and Yankee infielders stood nearby.
