TAMPA, Fla. — Michael Pineda had his second straight positive outing in his bid to become the Yankees’ fifth starter, striking out five over 22 / 3  scoreless innings as a New York split squad beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-0 Thursday.

Pineda, who missed the past two seasons after right shoulder surgery, has nine strikeouts in 42 / 3  scoreless innings overall. He allowed three hits and a walk against the Orioles.

“The best thing is, my shoulder is feeling great,” Pineda said. “When my shoulder is feeling good, I can pitch, I can compete. I’m happy with that.”

The 25-year-old right-hander is competing with David Phelps, Adam Warren and Vidal Nuno for the final rotation spot behind CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, Masahiro Tanaka and Ivan Nova.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Dan Warthen and the Mets apologized after the team’s pitching coach used a racial slur in describing the interpreter for New York pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka.

“I apologize for the thoughtless remarks that I made yesterday in the clubhouse,” Warthen said in statement. “They were a poor attempt at humor but were wrong and inappropriate in any setting. I am very sorry.”

Warthen approached interpreter Jeff Cutler, a Japanese-American, on Monday and apologized for jokingly calling him a “Chinaman” the previous day, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Notes

• Shortstop Jimmy Rollins will be back in the Philadelphia Phillies’ starting lineup Friday after a three-game benching. New manager Ryne Sandberg is reportedly irked at Rollins’ less-than-urgent spring-training regimen. Rollins, 35, is a former NL MVP who has played for the Phillies for 14 years.

• The Milwaukee Brewers announced that Yovani Gallardo will start his fifth consecutive season opener on March 31 against Atlanta. He will set a Brewers record for starts in consecutive openers and pull within one of Milwaukee’s overall mark for openers set by Ben Sheets.

• Cleveland’s Jason Giambi will be sidelined for three to four weeks with a broken rib in his right side after being hit by a pitch.

• In Tempe, Ariz., Mike Trout got three more hits, lifting his spring average to .444, and the Los Angeles Angels roughed up Jose Quintana in an 8-6 win over the Chicago White Sox.

• In Jupiter, Fla., Lance Lynn rebounded from a bad outing to strike out his final eight batters and 10 overall in four innings during the St. Louis Cardinals’ 11-0 win over the Atlanta Braves.

• In Clearwater, Fla., Roberto Hernandez took a perfect game into the sixth inning, Ben Revere and Domonic Brown each had two hits and the Philadelphia Phillies beat a New York Yankees split-squad 6-2.

• In Dunedin, Fla., Carlos Correa, the No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft, hit his first two home runs of the spring, leading the Houston Astros past the Toronto Blue Jays 7-5.
