TFD: Josmil Pinto was a much better Twins DH than Kendrys Morales

Star Tribune Sports - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 17:14
When the Twins acquired Kendrys Morales in early June, most of us figured two things: 1) it was probably a rental and 2) in spite of that, it was worth the money and gamble because he would probably help out a stagnant offense. As part of that, Josmil Pinto, who had been getting at-bats as DH, was shipped back to the minors to work on his catching. That’s a good thing. But as it turns out, the Twins missed Pinto’s bat. And that’s a bad thing. Morales was traded to the Mariners today, as you probably knew. Here are the comps between he and Pinto this season with the Twins: Morales: 162 ABs, .234 BA/.259 OBP/.325 slugging, 1 HR, 18 RBI. Pinto: 158 ABs, .222/.323/.407, 7 HRs, 16 RBI. It’s not as though Pinto was lighting the world on fire, but his 7 home runs are still tied for third-most on the team. Morales was a rental, but an unproductive one. He slugged .325; Nick Punto, in his Twins career, slugged .324.
