Pinto is owed approximately $640K for the remainder of the season, and he will be under team control for both the 2011 and 2012 seasons.
With the good stats he has, why would the Marlins DFA him. I think he'd be a great pick up if healthy.
Struggles against lefties this year. Has a .253 BAA against lefties for his career, though.
