Jared Burton nailed down the save in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Reds.

Interesting. Lefty Glen Perkins was called on in Minnesota's first two save opportunities without Matt Capps, but with two righties scheduled to lead off the ninth for the Reds, manager Ron Gardenhire went with Burton today. Burton walked two and recorded zero strikeouts. With Capps' shoulder likely to send him to the disabled list, the Twins might go with some approximation of a committee, but Perkins is the fill-in to own, with Burton being worth a look if you're absolutely desperate for saves.
