Burroughs bruised after getting hit by pitch
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Sean Burroughs was hit by a pitch on the left forearm by Rays right-hander Ryan Reid in the sixth inning of the Twins' 10-4 loss on Monday, and left the game for precautionary reasons.

Burroughs was diagnosed with a left forearm bruise and is day to day. He was replaced by Luke Hughes as a pinch-runner at first base.

"He's OK," Twins general manager Terry Ryan said. "They didn't even take X-rays."

Burroughs, who is competing for a spot as a backup infielder as a non-roster invitee, is hitting .290 with a .405 on-base percentage in 13 games this spring.
