    Yohan Pino to start Thursday / Deduno moved to pen

    Per Phil Miller tweet about 2 minutes ago.

    Great news if you ask me - Pino deserves a shot.

    Good for him. Hard for him to do more than he's done so far this year.

    Trying to catch lightning in a bottle, I guess. Congratulations to Pino or is it Piño? I guess this shows you should never give up, since Pino has been at AAA for a long time.

    No sense waiting for Samuel to turn it around.

    I assume that Pelfrey goes to the 60-Day, but who comes off the 25-man?

    I'm asking the same question. It could be Nuñez to the DL, it could be Parmelee or Florimon among the position players. On the pitching side, outside of some phantom injury, I don't see any obvious candidates. Of course, the TD boards will be waiting to send off Burton (with some justification) and Guerrier.

    Good for Yohan. But unfortunately, SOP for the Twins, shake all of the trees in the forest, first trying out Darnell, then Johnson......every possible option except the most obvious ones.

    Gardy in last night's presser expressed his profound love for Burt-ie...there's no way he's done yet...injury creativity has worked for the Twins this year at least twice (Bartlett and Pelfrey)....why not a third time?

    Oh, he's going to be kept around, still trying a turn:

    Deduno said he's disappointed, but relieved to remain on the team. "Have to keep my head up," he said.

    You simply can't do much better than Pino has done in AAA this season. He's earned a shot to see if it translates to the big leagues.

    I have zero problem with this, if they use Deduno appropriately (i.e. only in blowouts as a mop up pitcher.)

    #FreedYohan... very happy. He deserves this. Even if it's just one start. Still think May is up by next week, with some shifting of the rotation.

    I'm glad Pino is getting his shot. Good luck to him.

    Hopefully he will debut like Albers did, 2 great starts, then keep it going or be replaced by May or Meyer.

    Very happy for Pino. I hope he pitches great for a good long time. He earned his shot now he needs to make it work in the big leagues. TM will get his shot before too long.

    I'm with Thrylos on this. Good for Pino. I'm not for using Deduno in close games, especially with runners on base. He hasn't been very good at stranding inherited runners when he worked out of the pen early in the season, so his low ERA early on was deceptive of the work he was doing.

    AAA has guys in the bullpen to replace Deduno if he can't get himself under control. Same for Jared 'Just Bombs' Burton.

    I also think that recalling Pino is the beginning of a line of promotions for guys in AAA. Meyer/Mey cannot be far behind.

    Exactly, it's just nice to see them not sitting on their hands needlessly.

    Good for Pino. Don't understand why May didn't get the call. He's the obvious choice IMO.
