Description: The Twins have demoted catcher Josmil Pinto to the minors.
Insight: The 25-year-old backstop had five homers, 17 walks and a .902 OPS in April, but he went 14-for-70 (.200) with two homers, three walks and a .555 OPS in his last 23 games and has been sitting often.

Description: All signs point to Twins 24-year-old catcher Josmil Pinto getting a shot to start this season.
Insight: Pinto batted .342 in 76 at-bats last season and .314 at Triple-A Rochester. The Twins also signed veteran Kurt Suzuki to back him up and have Joe Mauer at first base, so they should be covered it Pinto doesn't pan out.

Description: Making just his second major league start behind the plate, Twins catcher Josmil Pinto registered four hits in Tuesday night's win over Houston.
Insight: He's been on a roll since his callup with six hits in nine trips to the plate. Pinto should move back to the bench when Joe Mauer (concussion) returns from the DL later this week.
