Twins place Santana on DL, bring back Pino

A knee injury suffered by Danny Santana in Wednesday's game was bad enough for the Twins to place the shortstop on the disabled list Friday. Santana had been listed as day-to-day by the team Thursday. Taking Santana's spot on the roster is pitcher Yohan Pino, who was sent down one day earlier when the team recalled shortstop Jorge Polanco from High-A Fort Myers. Because Pino is replacing...

Twins' Pino undeterred by poor outing

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Before Yohan Pino made his big-league debut at the ripe age of 30 last week, Minnesota Twins' general manager Terry Ryan said he had never had a bad start in triple-A. Pino's single start in the big leagues, the one he had waited for longer than any other pitcher in baseball, was promising. Although not a factor in the decision, he allowed only two earned runs...

The tale of two MLB debuts - follow up

I wrote yesterday about two pitchers making their MLB debuts in starts for their respective teams. The topic interested me because I am always rooting for a new guy to make an impression.

Despite rain, Twins' Pino shines in major league debut

MINNEAPOLIS -- Yohan Pino waited a decade to make his major league debut. After all that, waiting two more hours for a rain delay was nothing.

Thursday's start for Minnesota came after 10 seasons, 292 games and 1093 2/3 innings in the minor leagues. When he took the mound Thursday...

A tale of two MLB debuts - Andrew Heaney and Yohan Pino

Two pitchers will make their first Major League starts tonight--Yohan Pino for the Twins and Andrew Heaney for the Marlins. Their two paths to this point could not have been more different. Heaney was a Number One draft pick, but he's only pitched three seasons in the minors (this year being his third). Yohan Pino is not 23 like Heaney. Pino is 30-years-old and has been beating...
