News: Pinto will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester prior to the Twins' game Tuesday against the White Sox, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports. Impact: Pinto entered this season as an intriguing sleeper option at the catcher spot, but his offensive struggles in the early going and Kurt Suzuki's emergence ultimately led to an assignment at Rochester. Pinto predictably picked up his production in the minors while continuing to showcase his usual excellent plate discipline, which should afford him a chance at receiving sustained at-bats in September. Suzuki was given a contract extension earlier in the summer that should lock him in as the Opening Day catcher next season, but with a strong final month, Pinto could become a regular DH option for the Twins in 2015.(RotoWire, )
