Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett strikes out eight in losing effort

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/14/15) Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett allowed one run on seven hits in Pittsburgh's 2-0 loss to the Tigers Tuesday. 

Burnett totaled eight strikeouts and two walks in his 6 2/3 innings of work. His only blemish came in the seventh when he walked both Alex Avila and Jose Iglesias. After a Shane Greene strikeout, Burnett surrendered an RBI single to Rajai Davis.

Burnett lowered his ERA to 2.25 and will look for his first win of the year Monday against the Cubs.

Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Ks seven, settles for no-decision

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/9/15) Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett struck out seven and fell two outs shy of a quality start on Thursday against the Reds. He permitted two runs on four hits and one walk over 5 1/3 innings of work in a no-decision. Of his 87 pitches, 58 were strikes.

Burnett will return to the mound Tuesday at home against Detroit. In 16 starts, he went 4-8 with a 3.68 ERA at home last season.

Pirates P A.J. Burnett feeling good, confident

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/2/15) Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett is feeling good heading into the beginning of the season, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"I feel better than I have in the past this time. I'm confident I'm where I need to be," Burnett said.

The right-hander threw four shutout innings in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Yankees, giving up six hits with two strikeouts and one walk.

Burnett had a career-high 18 losses in 2014, compared to only eight wins. He finished the season with an ERA of 4.59 with 190 strikeouts and 96 walks. 

Pirates P A.J. Burnett changes tune about shifting

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/27/15) Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett has not had the highest of opinions when it comes to infield-shifting in the past. In 2013, he let some reporters know what he thought about shifting at the time.

When asked about a shift of shortstop Clint Barmes that year, Burnett stated, “I do not have a problem with (Barmes), I had a problem with the (expletive) shift. We play people in the wrong spot.”

But Burnett seemed to change his tune when reflecting upon the subject.

“As much as I complained about the shifts, they helped,” Burnett said. “They really did. It's that one a game, you've got a no-hitter for four or five innings and one gets through, and where you're like … ‘(expletive) shift.'

“But (shifts) saves you more than anything, and that's the truth.”

The 38-year-old has lost some steam on his fastball at this point in his career and he knows that.

“It took me getting a little older to realize that I'm not able to blow it by guys anymore and ground balls are just as good,” he said.

Burnett has posted a 6.39 ERA with nine earned runs, eight walks and 12 strikeouts in four starts this spring.

Pirates' A.J. Burnett allows five runs vs. Rays Monday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/23/15) Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett surrendered five earned runs on three hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 7-6 win over the Rays.

Burnett allowed four earned runs in eight innings in his first three appearances of the spring before turning in his worst Grapefruit League outing Monday, with the Rays scoring two runs in the first inning and adding four more in the fifth. The pitcher has delivered a 12:8 K:BB ratio to go with a 6.38 ERA this spring.
