Watch Now:

Pineda (suspension) won't be eligible to return until Tuesday due to Minnesota's missed games earlier in the week, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Pineda was suspended 80 games (reduced to 60 games upon appeal) last September for taking a banned diuretic. He isn't eligible to join the Twins until after the club's 36th game of 2020, since he already served the first 24 games of the ban in 2019. The Twins rescheduled Friday's rainout of a doubleheader later in the season, so Pineda will have to wait one more game to be eligible to return. He's expected to join the rotation as early as Tuesday.
