"The Jays are saying A.J. Burnett left Saturday's game for precautionary reasons due to an injury in his elbow.
Even if it's precautionary, anything to do with Burnett's elbow is a serious matter. If he's not going to be ready to begin the season in the rotation, the Jays would turn to Scott Downs." Mar. 18 - 3:35 pm et

The Jays believe A.J. Burnett's soreness today was caused by the breakup of scar tissue in his elbow from his earlier Tommy John surgery.

That'd certainly be the best-case scenario. If the Jays are right -- the MRI seems to support them -- Burnett might available during this first week of the season. He'll be shut down for five days and then resume his normal throwing regimen. "We hope so, we hope he can do that," GM J.P. Ricciardi said. "Obviously, we're going to err on the side of caution."

A.J. Burnett threw off a mound Tuesday for the first time since scar tissue broke free in his right elbow March 18.

"He threw 55 pitches over 12 minutes," pitching coach Brad Arnsberg said. "He threw all his pitches at 80 percent." Burnett may pitch three innings Saturday against Triple-A Syracuse. If he has no additional problems, it looks like he'll miss just one start at the beginning of the season.

A.J. Burnett to Miss First Two Starts
From Associated Press
March 29, 2006 1:20 PM EST
TORONTO - A.J. Burnett won't make his first two starts of the season and will go on the disabled list.

"He's going to miss his first two starts," Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi said Wednesday from Dunedin, Fla. "We could probably bring him back a little quicker, but I think all things being equal this allows him to keep him totally on track to where he's supposed to be."

Well this isn't a good start. Does anyone else think this is trouble?

Are there any more updates since the following:

Apr 4 Jordan Bastian, of BlueJays.MLB.com, reports Toronto Blue Jays SP A.J. Burnett (elbow) could be back sooner then expected after pitching well with no discomfort in a bullpen session Monday, April 3. Burnett will pitch four or five innings for Single-A Dunedin Thursday, April 6 and if he has no pain the team is not ruling out bringing him back early. The first date that Burnett would be eligible to pitch would be Saturday, April 8.

I haven't heard anything new around here lately, still assume they're sticking with their target to bring him back for the White Sox game on the 16th.

I looked at their schedule, and this kinda makes sense, the Jays have a ton of off-days early on, but if they stick to that date they will be able to get Halladay and Burnett going back-to-back, and they will also be able to get both of them in for games against the Red Sox here in a few weeks, and also against the Yankees at NY a week later. ;-D

The Blue Jays pregame show tonight confirmed that AJ had a successful rehab start last night (4 IP), and is scheduled to have another one on Tuesday, and they hope to have him start the game on the 16th @ Chicago.
