Twins setup man Jared Burton suffered a "twinge" in his right groin during Saturday's ninth inning but said he would be fine to pitch during Sunday's doubleheader.

"I think my cleat got hung up for a split-second there on the rubber," Burton said. "No big deal. Went out and threw and it feels fine today."

The veteran right-hander played catch in the outfield Sunday morning and reported no issues.

"That's another thing we really have to be guarded against," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "We just have to wait and see. He says he's OK, but he still felt a little something."

Burton said it happened on the strikeout pitch to Washington Nationals second baseman Anthony Rendon for the second out in the ninth on Saturday. Burton chose not to summon trainer Dave Pruemer to the mound and got Roger Bernadina to fly out to center on two pitches.
