Minnesota Twins Pitcher 'Punches' Teammate

If you're a relief pitcher in the outfield bullpen and want to get a highlight, you need to get creative. Minnesota's Jared Burton was up to the task.

No, a bullpen brawl did not erupt just as as the baseball sailed over the fence in the second inning of Friday's double-header between the Twins and White Sox

According to Phil Miller of the Star Tribune, "When Chris Colabello swung at the John Danks’ second-inning pitch in Game 1, Brian Duensing jumped up in the Twins’ bullpen and yelled at Jared Burton, 'C’mon — Punch me! Punch me!'"

They had reportedly been planning the prank for a long time, and we're glad they did. 

 

Hat tip to NBC Sports for the GIF and the Star Tribune for the insight.
