RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Pinto looked primed for a regular role in the majors last spring, but failed to make the Twins out of spring training, slumped in the minors (.228/.304/.354) and missed two months due to a concussion. Due to the concussion, the Twins elected to hold Pinto out from catching duties for the remainder of the season, and both the Padres and Brewers designated him for assignment after claiming him in the offseason. Pinto had shown good power and plate discipline in his brief stints in the majors, and first base would make sense for a rebuilding club if he's unable to catch anymore.

2015

Pinto began last season as the backup catcher to Kurt Suzuki but struggled to find playing time and was surprisingly sent to the minors in June despite a decent .730 OPS. Back in Triple-A, Pinto showed he's mastered the level with six home runs and a .833 OPS. He then struggled when called up in September by hitting .206 with a .606 OPS. Pinto has shown good power and plate discipline and could be an impact player, but the Twins have inexplicably failed to try to find a role for him in the majors. The Twins haven't been happy with Pinto's defense behind the plate, but the team didn't try to find a part-time role at DH or first base either. He enters spring training with a chance at the backup catcher job, but may wind up in Triple-A again. Pinto may need to move to another organization to find a regular role in the majors.

2014

Pinto could be in the mix for a significant role with the Twins in 2014 after a strong season at Triple-A and a blistering September callup. Pinto is a bit of a late bloomer at age 24 as he came on strong in the minors the past two years capped by hitting .309/.400/.482 with 15 home runs between Double-A and Triple-A last season. He then hit .342/.398/.566 with four homers and five doubles in just 21 games when called up to the majors in September. He's shown good power and plate discipline (82:66 K:BB ratio between both levels), so his major league showing doesn't seem to be a fluke. His defense isn't seen as an asset, however, which may limit his playing time behind the plate. With Joe Mauer moving to first base, Pinto could be in the mix for the starting job or the backup role in spring training. Even if he begins the season at Triple-A, he could get called up early in the season.
