Josmil Pinto lands on minor league DL with hip issue
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/26/14) Not much has gone right for catcher Josmil Pinto lately. He suffered through a 2-for-24 slump with the Twins, got sent down to Triple-A Rochester and has now been placed on the minor league disabled list with a hip ailment.

The good news is that the problem is not considered serious.

Pinto owns a fine .282/.417/.513 stat line with the Red Wings this season.

Josmil Pinto must improve the way he frames pitches
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/17/14) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire told 1500 ESPN Radio that catcher Josmil Pinto, demoted to Triple-A Rochester last week, has a lot of work to do on his defensive game. Closer Glen Perkins echoed those thoughts in an interview with the same station.

"He’s a long ways away, to be honest with you," Perkins said. "Balls close to the zone, balls below the zone — I guess I don’t really know about blocking and all those things — but his pitch framing, he’s got some work to do. … I don’t know what level he’s at, but he’s surely not at the big-league level as far as catching for me."

Perkins added that pitch framing "makes the biggest difference in the world."

Twins send down Josmil Pinto
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/11/14) The Twins optioned catcher Josmil Pinto to Triple-A Rochester, reports 1500ESPN.com. He's hit .200 since May 1 and has not thrown out a baserunner all season.
Triple-A trip could be looming for Josmil Pinto
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/14) The Twins are trying to figure out what the plan for catcher Josmil Pinto will be moving forward, now that he can't really serve as DH with the signing of Kendrys Morales.

Pinto, who got off to a strong start with the bat, has been flailing for a while, both at the plate and behind it. He has yet to throw out a baserunner as a catcher, and is hitting just .200/.227/.329 sine May 1.

As a result of the roster crunch, manager Ron Gardenhire told MLB.com Wednesday the team is considering sending him down to Triple-A Rochester to play every day.

"It's all the things we're talking about," Gardenhire said. "We're trying to figure out our route here. We're trying to see how we can work him in and keep him developing, too. We're working on it. The whole process."

Twins have 'talked about' demoting Josmil Pinto
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/10/14) Since May 1, Twins catcher Josmil Pinto is batting just .200 with two home runs and seven RBI in his last 23 games (18 starts). However, manager Ron Gardenhire told MLB Network Radio Tuesday the bigger concern is Pinto's defensive struggles, which might led to a demotion to the minors.

"Our biggest concerns are that he's struggled throwing the ball, calling the game and moving balls outside the strike zone," Gardenhire said. "We need him to develop and swing, there's always the possibility we send him down. We've talked about it."
