Marlins upset with Renyel Pinto

Renyel Pinto has the Marlins front office a bit peeved.

The Marlins are irritated with Renyel Pinto, who will be disciplined for missing FanFest, but haven't found value for him in a trade.

Every year, it seems, some player(s) misses FanFest, though all required to attend.  It is in their contract.  Most of the time when they don't show it is due to visa problems.  In Pinto's case, the reason given for him not attending has yet to be released.  He may still be working on his excuse.  But whatever the case, I can't imagine there were hundreds of kids lined up in Pinto jerseys only to be reduced to tears when he didn't show.  However, I could be wrong about that.
