Joe Girardi said that the dye-contrast MRI on Michael Pineda's sore pitching shoulder, originally scheduled for today in New York, would be performed tomorrow instead because of "scheduling conflicts."

Pineda was shut down on Saturday after experiencing pain and weakness in his shoulder after throwing 15 pitches in an extended spring training game, a setback Girardi termed as "significant." The manager said he would probably have a report on what the test reveals before the start of Tuesday night's game against the Rangers.
