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.

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...
