Jared Burton is the biggest reclamation project in the Twins' revamped 2012 bullpen.  He had some success in Cincinnati a few years ago and even flashed glimpses of being a potential closer.  Then injuries derailed his career.  Healthy again, he has landed in Minnesota with a chance to become the primary right-handed setup man.  He's been effective so far.  Who knows?  Maybe he still has a chance to become a big league closer.
