A week later and things, today, are still bad for A.J. Burnett this Spring.
In total, his “official” Spring stats are as follows: 8 IP, 14 hits, 8 walks and 8 earned runs allowed. He’s thrown 124 pitches with just 70 of them being strikes.
He should get one, or maybe two, more turns this Spring. And, after that, he’ll be facing the Red Sox up at Fenway Park (in a real game). Let’s hope he figures it out by that time.
