Twins' Burton fills in capably as closer

Twins All-Star closer Glen Perkins was once again unavailable Tuesday in Cleveland due to a stiff neck. Minnesota hasn't needed him in a save situation, though, for several days after losing four straight to the Angels. Hanging onto a one-run lead late in Tuesday's series opener against the Indians, Minnesota needed someone to fill Perkins' shoes in a save situation in...

The trade deadline is a week away, here are some Twins predictions

I wrote a little while back about Kurt Suzuki and how he was the perfect trade chip for the Twins. The trade deadline is fast approaching, and one would assume that his time with the Twins is drawing to a close. But who from the Twins will be leaving town at the end of the month and who will be saying with the Twins? Let’s look at some candidates and see what might happen with...

Twins and the Trade Deadline

We're nearly at the all-star break, which means we're a fair way past the first half of the season but everyone's required to refer to it as the first half anyway.  It's also a good time to look back on what has transpired thus far and what I hope to see in the 2nd half, mainly because that's what everyone does at the all-star break.  The most exciting part...

Burton seals Twins' four-game sweep of White Sox

He didn’t know for sure until the phone rang. As the Twins prepared to bat in the eighth inning Sunday, Jared Burton watched bullpen coach Bobby Cuellar pick up the receiver, listen for a moment, then turn to him as he hung up. “He says, ‘Burton, you got it,” the veteran reliever recounted. “I said, ‘All right — let’s do it.’ ” And so he did, needing only...

Twins' Burton remains confident despite control problems

Jared Burton has given up home runs in three of his five appearances this season, and Tuesday night was the worst. After recording two easy groundouts to open the ninth inning, the Twins righthander walked three consecutive Blue Jays batters to load the bases, then grooved a 90-mile-per-hour cut fastball that Brett Lawrie hit off the upper-deck facing at Target Field. That grand...

How’s your day going? I imagine that answer depends on what side of I-94 you live on. Josmil Pinto is a good hitter. Also, he doesn’t dive into first. That’s Punto, not Pinto.

Twins don't want strong bullpen to be best part of team

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins had the worst starting rotation in baseball in 2013, which meant their bullpen was among the most taxed. Yet despite the starters' inability to go deep into games, Minnesota's relievers proved to be a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing season.
