Player Notes
Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Josmil Pinto (concussion) will likely play in another minor league game Tuesday.

Advice: Pinto, who suffered a concussion earlier this month, caught three innings on Monday and went 0-for-1 with two walks. The Twins will keep him on the minor league side in case there's a setback, but he's making strides to be ready for Opening Day.

Josmil Pinto (concussion) has been cleared for games.

The Twins hope Josmil Pinto (concussion) will be cleared to play in a minor league game Monday.

Advice: Pinto claims that he is no longer experiencing post-concussion symptoms, but he failed part of his concussion test on Friday. The results of a second test should be available Sunday, at which point he could be cleared for game action. The Twins hope Pinto will be ready for Opening Day, but if he's not they could potentially backdate a DL stint and he'd miss minimal time.

Josmil Pinto failed part of his concussion test on Friday and is scheduled to retake it again on Sunday.

Advice: Pinto claims that he is no longer experiencing post-concussion symptoms, but the team isn't quite ready to clear him just yet. As long as he's cleared on Sunday, he should be ready in time for the start of the regular season.

Josmil Pinto (concussion) has been cleared to resume limited baseball activity.

Advice: Pinto suffered a concussion when he was hit in the head by a backswing on Saturday, but he plans to hit in the cage Wednesday and perhaps even do some catching work. The Twins will surely keep an eye on him to see how he responds, but it sounds like he won't miss much time.

Twins general manager Terry Ryan said Tuesday that Josmil Pinto (concussion) is doing better.

Advice: Pinto suffered a concussion when he was hit in the head by Adam Jones' backswing on Saturday. He has resumed riding a bike, but it's unclear when he'll be ready for baseball activities. Obviously the Twins will handle the situation with care.

Wed, Mar 25 Rotoworld
Josmil Pinto will be held out of baseball activities for 4-5 days due to a concussion.

Advice: Pinto's teammate Eduardo Escobar told reporters Pinto didn't sustain a concussion in Saturday's game, but that was obviously uninformed opinion. A CT scan came back negative, but Pinto reported feeling dizzy Saturday, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. Concussions are notoriously fickle, so it's tough to say how long Pinto may be sidelined.
