Burr (2-0) allowed two runs on three hits while striking out one but got the win over the Twins on Tuesday.
Burr entered in the eighth inning with the White Sox clinging to a one-run lead, and he allowed that to vanish after facing just two batters. He surrendered a leadoff single before Jorge Polanco took him deep to right to give the Twins their first lead of the game. Fortunately for him, the White Sox rallied off five runs in the bottom half of the frame to put him in line for the win. The 27-year-old has been excellent for most of the season, as this was just his second outing in which he's given up a run. He now owns a 1.96 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 16:8 K:BB over 18.1 innings.
Burr threw two perfect innings as the opener in a win during Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against Seattle. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision.
Burr was impressive in his first start of the season, needing 27 pitches to roll through two clean innings. In 10.2 innings of work this season, the 27-year-old has allowed just one hit and has yet to give up a run. He has a win and a hold since he was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte in late May.

The righty has yet to allow a hit, let alone a run, in 5.1 innings with the White Sox since being called up May 27, and he now has a victory to show for his success through four relief appearances. A reliever may need to be sent down once Michael Kopech (hamstring) is ready to be activated, but Burr has certainly made a case to stay with the big-league club.
The White Sox selected Burr's contract from Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday.
Burr will return to the big leagues for the first time since 2019 with the White Sox in need of another fresh arm out of the bullpen after Michael Kopech (personal) was placed on the bereavement list Thursday.

Burr is dealing with mild right shoulder soreness but should throw off a mound later this week, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
While Burr should be able to throw again soon, it's unclear when exactly he'll be ready for game action. He's not on the 40-man roster, so he's unlikely to pitch in a big-league game anytime soon even if healthy.
White Sox manager Tony La Russa said Sunday that Burr is receiving evaluation for an arm injury, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The exact nature and extent of Burr's injury remains unknown, but the health setback likely takes the non-roster invitee out of the running for a spot in Chicago's Opening Day bullpen. Burr had already endured a rough spring training, posting an 11.88 ERA and 2.28 WHIP over 8.1 innings.
Burr (elbow) joined the White Sox's player pool Tuesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Burr (elbow) was moved to the 60-day injured list Monday.

Burr was on track to resume throwing in mid-June, but things did not go as expected, and he was sent for surgery instead. It remains to be seen how long Burr will need to recover, but he won't be ready to pitch again until some point next season.
Burr (elbow) is set to play catch Saturday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Burr (elbow) will have his elbow re-examined by the team physician Monday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Burr is suffering from what the report indicates is an elbow capsule strain. He's hoping to avoid surgery, but that's a possibility. "It's something strange, something that is not right," Burr said. "We're waiting to see if it takes care of itself. So [Monday] is like the big day, I guess, when we figure out which route we're going to go."

Carlos Correa brought home a run with a sac fly off Burr in the first inning and it was the only run Houston really needed in the team's 3-0 shutout against the White Sox. Working as the opener, it was Burr's first career "start" at the MLB level. The 24-year-old rookie lowered his ERA to 3.86 in 18.2 frames. He'll mostly continue working middle innings and low-leverage situations moving forward.
The White Sox are expected to deploy Burr as an opener for Monday's game against the Astros, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Unless the White Sox elect to call up one of their minor-league starters to assume Manny Banuelos' (shoulder) spot in the rotation, it appears manager Rick Renteria will treat the series opener as a bullpen game. Assuming that's the case, Burr would be available to cover one or two frames before the White Sox delve into their relief ranks to handle the rest of the innings.
