      Decision to be made quickly on Twins C Josmil Pinto

      Twins catcher Josmil Pinto is in a battle for the back-up catcher spot for the club. Manager Paul Molitor knows that a decision will have to be made soon, according to "He seems to be healthy," manager Paul Molitor said before Thursday's game. "He's had limited playing time. We'll be watching him closely. We're going to have to make that decision fairly quickly." Pinto is competing with Chris Herrmann and Eric Fryer for the role to back up Kurt Suzuki. In 17 at-bats, Pinto has hit .353 this spring. He has missed some time this offseason due to issues with his knee and quad, limiting the club's opportunity to see him on the diamond. "It's challenging," Molitor said about Pinto's limited exposure. "There's performance. There's fit. There's rosters. There certain things we're going to consider making the final decision." A decision could come as soon as Friday morning. "I would like to get that done in fairness to the people involved," Molitor said.
