JOSMIL PINTO RUMORS & GOSSIP

An idea that should have been brought up sooner

Otherwise move Mauer off first and commit to Pinto and Vargas at first and DH. That is also acceptable. — Brandon Warne (@Brandon_Warne) September 10, 2014 I am linking to Brandon Warne’s tweet here to acknowledge the fact that I didn’t come up with this idea either. I think it’s tremendous though, and fully endorse it. The Twins should probably begin their turn around sooner...

Twins to add Pinto, 7 others to roster

The moves were announced Monday before Minnesota concluded a four-game series at Camden Yards. The players were expected to join the team Tuesday, when the Twins host the Chicago White Sox.

Deep Impact: Dynasty League Warm Bodies

On Razzball Radio last week, where you finally got to see my perfectly circumferenced face, that looks like almost any chubby latino catcher that you can think of (to name a couple: Ramon Castro, Josmil Pinto), I got into my win-now approach. I traded high impact prospects (Gregory Polanco and Anthony Rendon) for a more immediate influence, (Robinson Cano). I often wind up with...

This doesn’t seem optimal for Josmil Pinto’s development

This is the game log for Twins back up catcher Josmil Pinto. Pinto wasn’t supposed to have that role coming into the season, but fell into the role when Kurt Suzuki started raking. He was pushed into a DH role for a while but now, as you can see, he has onlly had 1 start since May 17th. Pinto’s value will always come from his bat. Furthermore, he’s not that bad at the dish...

Twins' Pinto showing off power, patience at plate

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins have hit 11 home runs in 11 games at Target Field this year. The two longest blasts came off the bat of young Josmil Pinto. None went further than the majestic drive Pinto launched into the second deck on Saturday against the Detroit Tigers that helped cap a 5-3 victory for Minnesota. It was the type of no-doubter -- estimated at 417 feet -- that...

Links of the Day 4/16/14

How’s your day going? I imagine that answer depends on what side of I-94 you live on. Josmil Pinto is a good hitter. Also, he doesn’t dive into first. That’s Punto, not Pinto. Here are the Vikings being all awkward with their well wishes for the Wild. Jose Abreu hit a completely lame home run. SCOREBOARD MLB Chicago 2, Boston 1 – This is approximately the score I expect...

Twins Tuesday: Minnesota taking advantage of Pinto's bat

MINNEAPOLIS -- When Josmil Pinto debuted as a September call-up last season, he tore the cover off the ball. The young Twins catcher batted .342 with four homers and 12 RBI in a small, 21-game sample size. Tuesday's game against Toronto marks Pinto's ninth game of the 2014 season, as he's split time between designated hitter and backing up catcher Kurt Suzuki. It's still early, but...

Twins notes: Josmil Pinto still day-to-day with back stiffness, Matt Guerrier close to facing hitters

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Pinto is not going to play in the Twins' spring training opener on Thursday and he still needs to participate in a full day of activities before the team's trainers will...
