Burdi (biceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Burdi was diagnosed with a strained biceps tendon and flexor mass earlier in the day by team physicians, but he could avoid surgery, which would mean a faster recovery time for the reliever. He'll require more than the 10-day minimum while on the injured list and has been ruled out indefinitely. The Pirates have recalled Steven Brault from Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding move.

Twins Team Preview: Help Is On The Way
March 1, 2015
The Twins aren't likely to contend in 2015, but they made some strides last year and have a slew of high-upside prospects like Miguel Sano that could be up by the end of the season.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
Burdi made a strong impression in his professional debut in 2014 as he rose from rookie ball to Double-A in dominating fashion. He looked set to perhaps reach the majors in 2015, but surprisingly struggled at Double-A with a 5.63 ERA and 33:22 K:BB ratio in 30.1 innings. Back at High-A, he found his form and had a 2.25 ERA with a 13.1 K/9. He then finished the season with a 1.27 ERA and 16:10 K:BB in 14.1 innings back at Double-A. Despite the outstanding strikeout rates, wildness is a concern as he had a 6.6 BB/9 at Double-A. Burdi hits 100 mph on the radar gun and could be the high-velocity arm the Twins desperately need in the bullpen. However, he'll need to be more consistent and reduce his free passes to get a shot at the majors in 2016.
Burdi was on the radar to be drafted in 2011, but he slipped to the 24th round after struggling with inconsistency during his senior year of high school. At Louisville, he developed into an excellent power arm, showing a plus-plus fastball that touches 100 mph and regularly sits in the high-90s. He keeps hitters off balance with a plus slider than can reach the low-90s make him a potential closer down the road. Burdi made a strong impression in his professional debut with the Twins last summer. After dominating Low-A Cedar Rapids with a 4.15 ERA and 26:8 K:BB ratio in 13 innings, he then struck out 12 batters in 7.1 scoreless innings at Double-A New Britain. He's likely on the fast track to the big leagues, and might be in the Minnesota bullpen by summer.
