Pineda (4-5) allowed one earned run on four hits and a walk while striking out three across five innings, earning the win over the White Sox on Wednesday. Pineda surrendered two hits and a walk in the third inning, which led to the only run scored against him. He allowed just two runners to reach base safely in the other four innings pitched. His previous start was also against the White Sox, where he was blown up for five runs on 12 hits. Pineda fared better Wednesday and picked up his first win since May 26. The 32-year-old has a 3.93 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP over 66.1 innings.
Pineda (3-5) was tagged with the loss Wednesday against the White Sox after giving up five runs on 12 hits while fanning four across 5.1 innings. Pineda pitched into the sixth in his return and tossed 82 pitches, including 60 strikes. However, the White Sox often found a way to make contact with his deliveries and that resulted in the veteran allowing a season-high 12 hits en route to his fifth loss of the campaign. The right-hander has given up three or more runs in three of his last four outings and owns a 4.11 ERA ahead of the All-Star break next week.
Pineda (forearm) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's start against the White Sox, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports. Pineda had been sidelined with forearm inflammation since June 14, but he was able to keep throwing throughout most of his rehab process. He allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out one in four innings during his lone rehab start at Triple-A St. Paul on July 1, and he'll now return to the major-league club for a final start before the All-Star break. Right-hander Griffin Jax was sent down in a corresponding move.
Pineda (forearm) will be activated from the injured list and start Wednesday's game against the White Sox, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The big righty has been out since June 14 with right forearm inflammation but will return to make one last start before the All-Star break. Pineda struggled in his May 13 outing against the White Sox, allowing two homers and three runs while walking three in 5.1 innings. Injuries have further depleted Chicago's lineup, though, so Pineda may find more success this time around.
Pineda (forearm) is not expected to need another minor league rehab outing before returning from the injured list, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Pineda made a rehab start for Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, so he could return as early as Wednesday, but it's more likely to be Thursday or Friday against Detroit. However, the Twins haven't given a specific timetable for his next start.
