Royals optioned RHP Yohan Pino to Triple-A Omaha.

Pino's being optioned to make room for the return of Greg Holland. In 10 1/3 innings this season, Pino hasn't allowed a run. He figures to see time in the Royals' bullpen at various points this season, especially if he continues pitching well. It should be noted, though, that he posted a 5.07 ERA over 60 1/3 innings for the Twins last season.

Royals recalled RHP Yohan Pino from Triple-A Omaha.

Pino was actually promoted on Saturday and tossed 4 2/3 scoreless relief innings after relieving Yordano Ventura following his ejection. It's possible the Royals will send him right back down since he won't be available to pitch for a few days.

Royals optioned RHP Yohan Pino to Triple-A Omaha.

The 31-year-old right-hander struggled to the tune of a 6.00 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in Cactus League play. He'll function as organizational rotation depth for the Royals.
Mar 22 - 8:27 PM

Royals signed RHP Yohan Pino to a one-year contract.

Exact terms aren't yet known. Pino, who turns 31 later this month, made 11 starts with the Twins in 2014 and posted a 5.07 ERA and 50/14 K/BB ratio over 60 1/3 innings. He was shut down in August with a minor strain of his ulnar collateral ligament, but he'll represent rotation depth if healthy.

Twins sent RHP Yohan Pino outright to Triple-A Rochester.

The move clears him from the 40-man roster. Pino has the ability to become a minor league free agent. The 30-year-old was shut down in August with a slight sprain of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Yohan Pino has been diagnosed with a minor strain in his right ulnar collateral ligament.

He suffered the injury during Saturday's spot start. Pino will be shut down for 2-4 weeks and is likely to miss the remainder of the season. It sounds like the Twins will hope he can heal with some rest, but Tommy John surgery is always a distinct possibility when there's UCL damage.

Yohan Pino earned his second win of the season, allowing four runs (one earned) as the Twins pounded their way to a 12-4 victory over the Tigers in the first game of Saturday's double-header.

Pino had a 9-1 lead after three innings, so there wasn't much he could have done to lose the game. The right-hander allowed six hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. Now with 11 starts under his belt, Pino owns a 5.07 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and a 50/14 K/BB ratio. He's likely headed back to Triple-A Rochester.

Yohan Pino will be called up to start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

Trevor May will pitch the second game. Pino owns a rough 5.37 ERA in 10 starts this season at the big league level and makes for a poor fantasy streamer versus Detroit.

Twins optioned RHP Yohan Pino to Triple-A Rochester.

He's clearing room for Ricky Nolasco's (elbow) return from the DL. Pino, who holds a 5.37 ERA over 10 starts this season, could return to start during a doubleheader versus the Tigers next week.

Yohan Pino allowed seven runs, including three home runs, over 4 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Pino had given up five home runs in his first nine starts before Tuesday's disaster. The right-hander gave up seven hits and a walk in all, and he also struck out seven in the loss. Pino is now 1-5 and hasn't won a decision in a month, and a meeting with the first-place Royals on Monday doesn't offer much more promise.

Yohan Pino allowed three runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the A's on Thursday.

Pino hung in there, but he was no match for a dealing Jon Lester. He came into the night 1-1 with a 6.28 ERA in three road outings, so this ho-hum outing was actually a step in the right direction. The 30-year-old rookie right-hander only has a rotation spot because the Twins continue to curiously suppress the service clocks of far more talented hurlers Trevor May and Alex Meyer. Pino takes on the Astros next week.
Fri, Aug 8, 2014 12:50:00 AM

Yohan Pino allowed two runs over six innings in a no-decision against the White Sox on Sunday.

Pino turned in his third good start in his last four, lowering his ERA to 4.38. Pino walked one and struck out six. He remains 1-3 and isn't a factor outside of deep AL-only leagues. He'll face the same White Sox club on Saturday.
Sun, Jul 27, 2014 04:58:00 PM

Yohan Pino allowed four runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Indians on Tuesday.

Pino had limited his opponents to two runs in his final two starts before the break, but the 30-year-old failed to carry that momentum over to the second half. The right-hander gave up a home run to Carlos Santana among his seven hits allowed, but he didn't walk a batter while striking out five. Pino may stick around with the lack of better options currently in Minnesota, but he offers little in the way of fantasy upside.
