You have found a little Ambystoma maculatum which is a type of mole salamander.
They like lots of soil to burrow into and they tend to be one of the less visual salamanders. You won't be seeing much of this little guy. I have put mine into an outdoor enclosure now and the only time I see them is when I excavate them.
I would actually advise you to release it outside, close to where you found it.
