Twins | Low-pressure situations for Jared Burton

Tue, 02 Jul 2013 20:00:06 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Jared Burton has struggled recently, so manager Ron Gardenhire plans to use him in low-pressure situations until he works through his issues. "You always try to say you'll get him in some non-pressure situations, but I don't know if there are those in the big leagues," Gardenhire said. "So we'll try to get him in some situations where it's not the eighth and a one-run lead. I talked to him, and he says his arm feels good, but he's just not putting away hitters right now. So we talked about a few other routes he can go with the way he attacks hitters."
