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.
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.
