AJ Burnett - Extended Spring Training Updates?

Postby MrGrimmFantasy » Tue May 18, 2004 2:07 pm

Does anyone know where to get good updates on Extended Spring Training games. I'm interested in how AJ Burnett pitched today.

Well, when he goes on a rehab assignment, you can get the updates through Baseball America's Daily Prospect Report emails.

From Rotoworld:

A.J. Burnett pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings today in an extended spring training game against Cardinals minor leaguers.
Burnett gave up three hits and struck out seven while throwing 68 pitches. "It was fun," he said. "I wasn't scared to throw any of my pitches, but I only threw 90-95 percent. I'm chomping at the bit to get back to work." Burnett's next outing will be Sunday against Single-A Brevard County before a third start May 28 against either Double-A or Triple-A competition. If he continues to progress, Burnett could rejoin the Marlins by June 2 against Cincinnati.

same kinda news of fantasy source:

Burnett pitched 4.1 innings of shutout ball Tuesday in his first rehabilitation start since reconstructive elbow surgery last year. Burnett threw 68 pitches in an extended spring training game against a team of rookies from the Cardinals. He allowed three hits and a walk while striking out seven. He is expected to return to the Marlins in June.
Fantasy Source spin: It's only a simulated game, but AP, who filed this story, must be as excited as we are about Burnett's rehab if they're putting the specific details. Grab now in any deep or large-bench league.

do you guys really think he'll be effective this season? probably not until the second half, eh? i read that he was hitting 98 mph (sounds healthy to me), and if he remembers how to pitch, jeeezzz...nice pick-up, right? i'm dropping milton for him.

CBS..

A.J. Burnett, SP FLA

News: A.J. Burnett told the Miami Herald that he felt no unusual pain one day after throwing a 69-pitch rehab start. "I feel wonderful," Burnett said. "Not sore, not tight."

Analysis: Burnett is scheduled to pitch for Class A Jupiter on Sunday. He is on pace to return to the majors in early June.
