Burton shut down from throwing
PHOENIX -- Injured reliever Jared Burton remained in Cincinnati during the road trip after his throwing program was shut down. Burton, who is on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, felt something in his last bullpen session on Thursday morning.

"He went to throw and he felt the same thing he had before," Reds manager Dusty Baker said on Saturday. "That's why these things are so hard to predict. You just don't know when you're going to have a setback."

Burton, who went on the DL March 30, was told not to throw for one week and will instead do strengthening exercises.
