Glen Perkins injuries not as serious as feared

Perkins has struggled down the stretch after a typically strong season in which he racked up 34 saves.

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.

Report: Twins contemplating shutting down Glen Perkins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Twins could be considering shutting down closer Glen Perkins for the season, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Ron Gardenhire has admitted he's worried about the struggling veteran left-hander.

"Yes, I'm concerned," he said about Perkins' recent drop in velocity. "We're going to talk with him (Wednesday). There's a lot of frustration involved right now. We're going to definitely talk with him and see where we're at and see how he's feeling because he just came off that (neck/shoulder) thing and he's had a couple outings where we think the velocity is down. We just want him to be honest with us and not hurt himself."

Perkins has blown three of his last five save opportunities, including Tuesday night, when he surrendered a three-run homer to Detroit slugger J.D. Martinez in the ninth inning. He has allowed five homers in his last eight appearances and at least one hit in each of his last nine.

Glen Perkins blows save, picks up win Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins closer Glen Perkins blew a save opportunity Tuesday but still ended up with a win in his team's 4-3 victory over the Tigers.

Perkins (4-3) was handed a 2-0 lead after a brilliant performance by Ricky Nolasco, and he served up a three-run home run to put his team in a hole. However, the offense delivered a walkoff win in the bottom half of the ninth to take Perkins off the hook. The closer's recent struggles continue, as he's now allowed runs in four straight appearances and six of his last eight games, serving up five home runs during that stretch. Perkins owns a 3.65 ERA and 66:11 K:BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings.
