It's Slama Time: Twins Option Alex Burnett

After the game last night, the Minnesota Twins optioned reliever Alex Burnett to Triple-A Rochester, moved Clay Condrey to the 60-day disabled list, and called-up Anthony Slama to fill the open void in the team’s bullpen.

Joe Christensen of the Star Tribune points out a couple of the key numbers.

Anthony Slama is expected to be here after being promoted from Class AAA Rochester late Monday night, when the Twins optioned Alex Burnett to Rochester and moved Clay Condrey to the 60-day disabled list, which freed a spot for Slama on the 40-man roster. Slama posted a 1.71 ERA and held opponents to a .164 average for Rochester.

Meanwhile, while Slama was dominating Triple-A, Burnett was struggling over the course of the last month. Since the beginning of July, in seven appearances, Burnett had an ERA of 10.80.
