Tue, 22 Jul 2014 09:50:50 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP A.J. Burnett prefers the Pittsburgh Pirates as his next team, and Pittsburgh players are lobbying for his return. The player option on his deal may wind up being a road block to a trade, though.

Fantasy Tip: Pittsburgh's pitchers typically are more successful than most clubs', and they helped turn around Burnett's career in 2012. A reunion would be a boon for Burnett's fantasy worth.

Phillies | Injury doesn't bother A.J. Burnett

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 13:47:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP A.J. Burnett (hernia) allowed only three hits in seven shutout innings to beat the Atlanta Braves Thursday, April 17, and he struck out five in the game. Burnett received a cortisone injection Monday, April 14, for an inguinal hernia, and he plans to pitch through it the entire season.

Fantasy Tip: Burnett's outing Thursday eased some of his owner's concerns after he was diagnosed with a hernia several days ago. It won't be all smooth sailing for him this year, but this is a good sign that the injury won't impact him too much.
