Twins allow reliever Jared Burton to leave for free agency
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Twins have declined their option on veteran right-hander reliever Jared Burton, making him a free agent.

The 33-year-old Burton, who finished the year as the closer after Glen Perkins was shut down, compiled an ERA of 4.36, his worst since 2009. His control has weakened in each of his last three seasons and his strikeouts were well down in 2014.

Jared Burton nails down save against Diamondbacks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jared Burton continued Wednesday to take advantage of his opportunity to close for the Twins by shutting down Arizona in the ninth for his third save.

Burton allowed a two-out double to Jordan Pacheco before retiring Didi Gregorius on a grounder to end it. He has given up one earned run in his last 6 2/3 innings pitched covering his last seven appearances.

Glen Perkins out, Jared Burton in as closer Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Twins closer Glen Perkins will at least be shut down Wednesday, if not for the year, with neck and shoulder injuries, per MLB.com. The results of an exam by doctors has yet to be revealed. Jared Burton will serve as the closer against Detroit on Wednesday and should remain in that role while Perkins is down.

Jared Burton earns second save Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Jared Burton picked up his second save Tuesday, tossing a 1-2-3 ninth inning to close out his team's 4-3 win over the Indians.

Burton needed just six pitches to finish off the game. He had given up five earned runs in 3 2/3 innings over his last four appearances before pitching a clean frame Tuesday. Regular closer Glen Perkins could be available as soon as Wednesday, so Burton might not receive another save chance. He owns a 4.63 ERA and 42:24 K:BB ratio in 58 1/3 innings.
