Sorry for being late with this. Was out of town on some family matters. I know these are available at other sites now, but posting for posterity's sake.

Pino left the game and after being optioned down after the game was placed on the minor league DL. Since he's on the minor league DL, he won't accrue service time, or earn the league minimum like he would if he were on the major league DL. This is going to be a very interesting situation, because as the 26th man, the Twins had no choice in sending him down, and the 26th man rule has no language in it pertaining what happens if someone is injured while being the 26th man. Expect a grievance to be filed.

As for his pitching performance, typical Pino. Not overly effective, not a lot of swing and miss, but good control and enough to get the win in a game where the Twins scored 12.
