Burnett leaves early

Postby thehat » Fri Apr 21, 2006 8:44 pm

Lifted after just 78 pitches. Considering who we're talking about coupled with the fact he threw 95 pitches in his opener, alarm bells are ringing.

From RotoWorld:

A.J. Burnett left Friday's game against the Red Sox after just 78 pitches and four innings of work. He may have had a setback with his elbow.
Burnett gave up three runs on a couple of homers in the third, but he retired the side in the fourth and was surprisingly absent to start the fifth. It's likely that he experienced a reccurence of the elbow problems that sidelined him at the start of the season. He had thrown 95 pitches in his last outing, so a pitch count of 78 doesn't make sense. Apr. 21 - 8:58 pm et

They showed some replays of some of his pitches and he looked like he was hurting a bit after his follow through. Hoping it's nothing too serious. :-o

While watching the Bluejay's and Red Sox on Television (Sportnet, channel 405), the commentator's received word from the Jay's clubhouse that he was taken out due to soreness in his elbow, similiar to what he experienced in Spring Training. That good enough for you?
Well about half an hour later Rotoworld has the update

TORONTO -- A.J. Burnett exited Friday's game against Boston after pitching just four innings due to discomfort in his right elbow. The injury is consistent with the one he suffered during a Spring Training start in Florida, and Burnett will head to Birmingham, Ala., where Dr. James Andrews will further evaluate the extent of the ailment.
Burnett winced in discomfort several times in the fourth, beginning with Mike Lowell's at-bat to lead off the inning. Lowell grounded out to second base and Burnett finished the inning. Toronto's right-hander looked to be favoring his right arm after the at-bat against Lowell, though.

Burnett, who signed a five-year, $55 million contract with the Blue Jays this past winter, began this season on the 15-day disabled list with a similar injury to his right elbow.

On March 18, Burnett cut his Spring Training start against Boston short after having scar tissue break off in his elbow. The scar tissue was left over from the elbow ligament replacement surgery that Burnett underwent in 2003, and having it break away from the joint is a common occurance for players who have that type of operation.

On Friday, Burnett (0-1) struck out five and walked one in the four innings he pitched. He allowed three runs on five hits, including consecutive home runs to Boston's David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez in the third inning. Burnett finished with 78 pitches -- 47 for strikes.

Could have been quicker. It wasn't until the 7th inning they found out, smartass.
