This sounds like a precautionary move from the Twins but is still a worrying sign as Pineda was making minor-league rehab appearances in his return from Tommy John surgery last July. The 29-year-old could still join the Twins in September if the issue is indeed minor, but a clearer timetable won't become available until the MRI results are released.
