Nick Burdi picks up the loss Monday

by Brad Camara | Cubs Correspondent | Tue, Aug 4th 8:24am EDT

Nick Burdi (0-1) allowed one run on two hits and one walk while striking out none across 1/3 inning in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Twins. He picked up his first loss of the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Burdi entered the game in the ninth, and allowed two base runners before yielding the GW winning single to Nelson Cruz. He earned his first loss of the season. Keone Kela will be activated off the injured list this week and is expected to reclaim the Pirates closer role. Burdi will return as one of the team's setup men and should only be owned in leagues which rewards the category saves/holds.
