BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Pinto has upped his walk rate in consecutive seasons, which is hard to do when you started at 4.9 per nine innings. Last year he reached 6.6, which he somehow survived—even elbow inflammation didn't set him back much more than the minimum. Pinto isn't properly utilized as a lefty spot reliever, as the wildness means you can't sure who he's going to pitch to—left-handed hitters had a .413 on-base percentage against him last year. He has also had a reverse split the last two years, with lefties hitting a robust .268/.393/.454 compared to .207/.325/.292. As such, Pinto is best used as a long man who has some breathing room to work around his own wildness, and that's largely how Fredi Gonzalez utilized him, giving him an inning or more to play with about 60 percent of the time. However he's used, Pinto is a time bomb: all it will take to double his ERA is that walk rate and a run of bad luck on balls in play.
2009 Pinto is mostly a fastball/changeup guy with typical lefty velocity, but one who has trouble hitting his spots consistently. That's where the sky-high walk rates come from. Even though he's managed three straight seasons with a below-average BABIP, the walk rates cancel out the extra benefit. In a bullpen full of surprises and promising youngsters, Pinto is a placeholder.
2008 How could a team with as many power arms and as many young, strong bats as the Marlins had last year lose so many games? A combination of a wretched defense and a poor, injury-prone rotation is the answer, but man, do the Marlins have the makings of a nasty bullpen in 2008. Pinto was often used to get out of jams last year, inheriting runners in more than 40 percent of his appearances and stranding 30 of the 38 he inherited. The shoulder strain that sent him to the DL in August didn't affect him in September as he didn't allow a run or an inherited runner to score in any of his eight outings that month.
2007 Though he only pitched out of the pen in Florida last year, Pinto`s being ticketed for the rotation in the future. Indeed, he had a pretty good year as a starter in Albuquerque. He`s still somewhat raw, though, as his consistently high walk totals suggest. It`s not difficult to see how his fastball-slider combo from a low, three-quarters delivery might work out better in the bullpen, particularly if he`s going to continue to struggle with his command.
2006 The system`s pitcher of the year in `04 didn`t really add to his luster as a prospect by sailing through a repeat engagement at Double-A. More of a pitcher than a flamethrower, Pinto`s sound delivery consistently cranks out a moving fastball that gets into the low 90s, as well as a good change. His slider still hasn`t come around, and that might contribute to his struggles against lefty hitters, who just aren`t being fooled by his just changing speeds. He struggled in Triple-A for similar reasons. Now that he`s with the Marlins he`ll be under more pressure to break through, but he has the talent to be a quality starter.
2005 Pinto took advantage of a deceptive motion and a fastball with plus movement to post one of the highest strikeout rates in the minor leagues and win the Southern League ERA title. At least one scout has compared him to Dontrelle Willis. Like Willis, Pinto will need to cut down on his walk rate as he moves through the system in order to compete with the other good arms that the Cubs have stashed throughout the system.
