Twins | Josmil Pinto could be sent down

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 09:37:09 -0700

The Minnesota Twins could option C Josmil Pinto to Triple-A Rochester so that he can receive more consistent playing time and work on his defense at catcher. With the club signing DH Kendrys Morales, Pinto doesn't have a clear path to playing time. Pinto had started 19 games at designated hitter and had only 18 starts at catcher, because he's had problems on defense this year, having yet to throw out a base stealer in 16 tries. He's also made five errors. Cs Eric Fryer or Chris Herrmann could be called up to replace Pinto as the backup catcher. Pinto has a slash line of .200/.227/.329 with two home runs and seven RBIs in 23 games since May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Since the move isn't official yet, don't cut Pinto from your roster just yet, but it's looking like you'll need to go in a different direction if you've been riding him in deep mixed or two-catcher leagues.
