|A.J. Burnett cleared to start Wednesday |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/14/14) Phillies starting pitcher A.J. Burnett will make his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Braves. Burnett, who left his last start Friday against the Marlins, has been diagnosed with a non-sports hernia.
|A.J. Burnett will know Monday if he can pitch Wednesday |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/13/14) Phillies starting pitcher A.J. Burnett (groin) should know Monday whether or not he will make his scheduled start Wednesday against the Braves, per MLB.com. Burnett will undergo an ultrasound Monday.
"I feel good, but I want my mind to be 100 percent," he said about the ultrasound. "Let’s just hope it’s not a (sports) hernia or something. That’s what I’m worried about. (Monday) will give me peace of mind. But as far as physically, (Sunday) was a good day today. A lot better."
Burnett, who left his start Friday against the Marlins due to soreness in his right groin, threw a bullpen session Sunday morning. He said it went better than expected, but he did feel some discomfort while throwing out of the stretch.
"It went away right after that," he said. "I’m feeling good enough to throw."
|A.J. Burnett still uncertain for Wednesday start |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/12/14) Phillies starter A.J. Burnett is dealing with soreness in his right groin and remains uncertain for Wednesday's scheduled start against Atlanta, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia on Saturday.
"We'll know more on Monday or Tuesday," Amaro said. "If he's still sore by then, we'll probably do more testing."
Burnett sustained the injury Friday night against Miami. He is 1-0 with a 3.94 ERA and 1.94 WHIP with 10 strikeouts in 16 innings pitched. David Buchanan is a possible candidate to replace Burnett if he is not ready for Wednesday.
|A.J. Burnett groin still ailing on Saturday |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/12/14) Ryne Sandberg said a groin ailment that contributed to the struggles of Phillies right-hander A.J. Burnett on Friday night felt no better Saturday, the Philadelphia Inquirer has reported.
Burnett, who lasted just 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against Miami, is scheduled to have the groin examined Saturday.
|In case his 16 wins in 2012 weren't enough to convince you he has turned over a new leaf with his move from the Yankees to the Pirates -- and perhaps not coincidentally, the AL to the NL -- A.J. Burnett delivered an even better 2013, setting a career high in strikeouts per nine innings while improving his ERA and WHIP. It was exactly the kind of performance that might lead you to believe he has plenty left in the tank at age 37, which made his talk of retirement this offseason a little surprising. In a stunning contrast from just three years ago, Fantasy owners would have been sad to see him go, particularly in Rotisserie leagues. One of the few "bargain" strikeout guys, Burnett is capable of delivering 200-plus for the price of a middle-to-late-round pick. Of course, his shortcomings contribute to that price tag. Even if you don't mind his middle-of-the-road WHIP, the thought of drafting a 37-year-old with the history of meltdowns should give you pause. Still, Burnett has been remarkable durable over his career and clearly agrees he has plenty left in the tank. Now that we know he's returning, he's worth drafting among the top 70 starting pitchers in mixed leagues, right alongside Tim Lincecum and Yovani Gallardo.
