Royals recalled RHP Yohan Pino from Triple-A Omaha.

He'll give the bullpen some length. Pino was knocked around in a spot start last month but has pitched well in relief with just one run allowed over 14 innings.

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.
Jun 20 - 3:42 PM

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.
Jun 19 - 10:36 AM

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.
Jun 18 - 4:59 PM

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.
May 12 - 2:29 PM

Royals recalled RHP Yohan Pino from Triple-A Omaha.

Pino has been unscored upon in 10 2/3 relief innings this season. He'll be the Royals' long man with Chris Young sliding into the rotation.
May 8 - 3:10 PM

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.
May 5 - 11:09 PM

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.
Apr 19 - 9:23 AM

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.
Mon, Oct 13, 2014 05:40:00 PM

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.
