News: Burton will remain in the closer's role during the series against the Diamondbacks, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: This what was expected when Glen Perkins was shut down for the season with a left forearm strain. Manager Ron Gardenhire said he will find other spots to use Michael Tonkin and Lester Oliveros. However, there was no definitive mention of whether Burton would hold the closer's role in the final series of the season, although that may have been implied.(RotoWire, )

News: Burton picked up a win, retiring the only two hitters he faced in the 10th inning before the Twins pushed across the winning run in the bottom of the frame Friday night. Impact: With closer Glen Perkins possibly out for the rest of the year, Burton is expected to get the ball in save situations over the last 10 days of the season. If you are desperately seeking saves, he might be a worthwhile addition.(RotoWire, )

News: Burton will get the first shot at closing games while Glen Perkins is sidelined with an arm injury, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: The Twins haven't ruled out Perkings from pitching again, but his return would seem unlikley at this point. It's also possible the Twins could give save chances to Michael Tonkin and Lester Oliveros.(RotoWire, )
