EXL: Draci allegedly signed a pitcher with AAA experience

Peloteros Venezolanos Europa published a post on their Instagram with an interesting information for Czech fans. Based on it Draci Brno signed a Venezuelan pitcher Wladimir Pinto.

Twenty five year old Pinto was a part of Detroit Tigers organization, where he played in AAA league. Venezuelan decided to try free agent market after seven years and signed with Minnesota. However, he was unable to get to the main team for Twins and was released after 25 games in AAA. He then finished the season in the independent Atlantic League, where he played for Long Island for the past two years. He also played in Venezuela and Colombia in winter.

Pinto threw 260.1 innings in MiLB, with ERA 3.25 and 342 strikeouts. He played mainly as a reliever, but he got to try a starting position a few times as well.

Based on MLB Pipeline scouting, his best weapons should be his fastball. His curveball also earned 55 points. The weak point, based on the scouting, was his pitch control, however. Fans in the Czech Republic will get to see how much he worked on it.
