Jared Burton notched his third save Tuesday with a scoreless inning against the Orioles.

Burton struck out a batter and walked another. It was his first save since June 25. Glen Perkins set him up with a three-punch-out eighth. Perkins and Burton will continue to share closing duties with Matt Capps on the disabled list into August. As such, the resurgent reliever with a 2.41 ERA is useable in most formats for now, especially if an owner is desperate for saves. Keep in mind that Minnesota wouldn't be averse to trading the reliever if they get an acceptable offer within the next two weeks.
