A.J. Burnett SP New York Yankees

A.J. Burnett, 33, has seen his dominance tumble over the past three years. He has steadily put up a 1.30-plus WHIP and has seen his flies spike since moving to HR-friendly park. Some efficiently performed tweaks could put him back to '09 utility, though it still carried ample risk. There's hope with the right changes, however, because there's still some nasty stuff hidden in there. Some corrections to delivery foul-ups produced brief stints of excellence last year. K's should be your first expectation from him, but his BB/9 is perpetually a WIP. Luckily, many are doubting him, so his bargain price is worth a shot. Could be an impact AL-only buy.
