Burnett to miss the beginning of the season......

Postby Madison » Mon Dec 01, 2003 2:23 pm

Last I heard, Burnett was supposed to be ready, but I guess he's behind schedule:

A.J. Burnett - S - Florida Marlins Nov 30

A.J. Burnett, coming back from Tommy John surgery, will begin throwing off flat ground next month and off a mound in January.
Burnett, who will be tendered a contract by the Marlins next month, is expected to miss at least the first month and probably the first two months of next season. Source: Palm Beach Post
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Thanks for the update.

One lesson I've learned the hard way: Under no conditions should you activate a player for his first start back from an injury like this.

Especially if he's a Cardinal (or playing on any team that La Russa may be coaching).

In a non keeper, i think AJ is worthless this year. In a keeper, maybe if you can stash him. One only has to look at Woods results when he was rushed back (near 5 era). Even if AJ appears in June, thats way too early (14 months) from surgery.
