Royals recalled RHP Yohan Pino from Triple-A Omaha.

Royals optioned RHP Yohan Pino to Triple-A Omaha.

Pino was slaughtered in a spot start against the Red Sox on Saturday which may have sealed his fate. Aaron Brooks was recalled from Triple-A and will take his place as the long reliever in the Royals bullpen, at least temporarily.

Yohan Pino was knocked around for six runs over 5 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Red Sox.

Starting in place of the injured Yordano Ventura (ulnar neuritis), Pino gave up a five-spot in the second inning and a solo shot to Hanley Ramirez in the fifth. All told, he allowed 11 hits and one walk while failing to strike out any of the 25 batters he faced. It's unclear whether he'll get another turn in the Royals' starting rotation, but he's not a fantasy option regardless.

Royals recalled RHP Yohan Pino from Triple-A Omaha.

Pino will start on Friday against the Red Sox in Yordano Ventura's (hand) place. The righty boasts a 0.64 ERA and 13/2 K/BB ratio over 14 innings with the Royals this season but can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

The Royals will call up right-hander Yohan Pino to start Friday against the Red Sox.

He'll start in place of Yordano Ventura, who is headed to the disabled list due to his ulnar nerve condition. Pino has had a couple of stints with the Royals this season while posting a 0.64 ERA and 13/2 K/BB ratio over 14 innings. However, he's not a fantasy option for this assignment.

Royals optioned RHP Yohan Pino to Triple-A Omaha.

Pino tossed 3 1/3 innings of relief on Monday, so the Royals needed a fresh arm for their bullpen. The 31-year-old should get another shot soon.

Royals recalled RHP Yohan Pino from Triple-A Omaha.

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.
Sun, Mar 22, 2015 08:27:00 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.
