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.
