Pirates | A.J. Burnett signs with Pittsburgh

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 12:42:06 -0800

Free-agent SP A.J. Burnett (Phillies) signed a one-year, $8.5 million contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, Nov. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Expect a minor resurgence from Burnett in 2015. The Pirates are a better offensive and defensive team than the Philadelphia Phillies, and PNC Park is a significantly more favorable pitching environment. Still, he'll be 38 years old, so expectations should be kept in check.
