Tinoco Making Impressive Transition to Bullpen in AFL

Jesus Tinoco, who had not pitched in relief since rookie ball in 2014, added another solid effort out of the bullpen in Salt River’s 8-7 loss to Peoria on Wednesday night. The Rockies prospect pitched two shutout innings, walking one batter, and lowered his ERA to 1.93 in the Arizona Fall League.

Tinoco has allowed three runs and a .208 batting average in 14 innings over nine games in the AFL, striking out 12 and walking five.

Rockies right-hander Ryan Castellani (5.91) started the game, and allowed four runs, all earned, on six hits and two walks, striking out four in three innings. Tyler Nevin (.404) was 1-for-4, and Sam Hilliard went 1-for-3, scoring two runs and driving in two runs.
