2015

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.
