Blue Jays Acquire Yohan Pino

The Blue Jays acquired righty Yohan Pino from the Indians for cash considerations, according to the Tribe's Twitter page.

Pino, 27, posted a 5.75 ERA, 7.0 K/9, 2.9 BB/9, and 1.5 HR/9 in 26 Triple-A starts last year, but was working out of the bullpen in Double-A this year.  He'd joined the organization in August of '09 as the player to be named later in the Carl Pavano deal with the Twins.  Pino last cracked a Baseball America handbook four years ago, when his command was said to rank among the best in the Twins' organization.
