Jesús Tinoco (born April 30, 1995) is a Venezuelan professional baseball pitcher for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball (MLB).


Tinoco signed with the Toronto Blue Jays as an international free agent in September 2011. He made his professional debut in 2012 with the DSL Blue Jays where he was 0-4 with a 4.14 ERA in 12 games (seven starts). He also played in two games for the GCL Blue Jays at the end of the season. In 2013, he played for the GCL Blue Jays where he compiled a 0-5 record and 5.09 ERA in 12 games (nine starts) and in 2014 he pitched with the Bluefield Blue Jays where he was 1-9 with a 4.95 ERA in 13 games (12 starts). Tinoco began 2015 with the Lansing Lugnuts.

On July 28, 2015, the Blue Jays traded him, along with José Reyes, Miguel Castro and Jeff Hoffman to the Colorado Rockies for Troy Tulowitzki and LaTroy Hawkins.[1] Colorado assigned him to the Asheville Tourists and he finished the season there. In 22 starts between the two teams, he pitched to a 7-6 record and 2.97 ERA. He spent 2016 with Asheville and the Modesto Nuts where he compiled a combined 3-11 record and 6.86 ERA in twenty starts and 2017 with the Lancaster JetHawks where he posted an 11-4 record and 4.67 ERA in 24 starts.[2]

The Rockies added him to their 40-man roster after the 2017 season.[3] He spent 2018 with the Hartford Yard Goats, going 9-12 with a 4.79 ERA in 26 starts.[4] He began 2019 with the Albuquerque Isotopes.[5]

On May 31, 2019, he was called up to the major leagues for the first time.[6] In the game that evening, he made his MLB debut pitching a scoreless ninth inning in a win over the Blue Jays, the team that had traded him.[7]
