And the Tacoma Rainiers are no longer Pineda-free. He's in the dugout! He'll make his debut in the Salt Lake series this week at Cheney.— Mike Curto (@CurtoWorld) June 20, 2010
He's 21 years old, he throws in the high 90s, he has offspeed stuff, and he struck out 78 in 77 AA innings while walking just 17. 2011 doesn't look great on paper, but Pineda could change that in a hurry.
