Pirates SP A.J. Burnett to throw bullpen session Tuesday
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Pirates starting pitcter A.J. Burnett will throw a bullpen session on Tuesday, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The outcome of the session could determine how soon Burnett can return to the Pirates' rotation.

“We flipped the hourglass,” manager Clint Hurdle said. “The sand's running out, and he wants to be smart with it. He also wants to have a sense of urgency with it in a smart way. We’re not going to sit and take an extra week. If we think we can go, we’re going to bump this thing forward and get it rolling.”

Burnett has been on the 15-day disabled list because of a flexor strain in his right elbow since late July.
