A.J. Burnett to Miss Four Weeks with Flexor Strain

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett has a strained flexor tendon and the UCL is still intact, which means he could pitch again this season.  That’s much better news then what was reported yesterday.  The team also announced that Burnett has received a platelet-rich plasma injection and should return in four weeks.

The 38-year-old is having the best year of his career, posting a 3.06 ERA in 135 1/3 innings with a WHP of 1.34 and a FIP of 3.07.  He also made the All-Star game for the first time in his 17-year career.
