    I think Pinto starts the year in Rochester... If he puts up decent numbers in AAA... He becomes the starter in Minnesota when Suzuki gets put on the DL.

    If Pinto continues to hit... Not a sure thing but possible... Suzuki gets Wally Pipped and Pinto will be the guy for a long while.

    His defense needs some work but it's not brutal by any stretch of the imagination.

No question the light switched on at the plate in 2012. While what he's done the last 2 years as a batter are encouraging, he still has a ways to go before he's a certified major league backstop.
    Agreed. There's a reason that he's not very highly regarded among analysts. That doesn't mean he can't succeed, it just means he has a few things to work on.
