Report: Orioles offer deal to veteran starting pitcher A.J. Burnett
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Orioles have offered free agent starting pitcher A.J. Burnett a contract, according to Yahoo Sports MLB columnist Jeff Passan. However, nothing is close to being completed.

However, one Orioles official told CSNBaltimore.com the reports of an offer to Burnett was "news to me."

Burnett became a free agent in early November after he declined his $12.75 million player option with the Phillies. The two sides also declined a mutual $15 million option.

The 37-year-old pitcher lost a career-high 18 games in 2014. He also won fewer than 10 games for the first time since 2004. He did toss 213 2/3 innings, while posting a 4.59 ERA and striking out 8.0 batters per nine innings.

A.J. Burnett hits free agent market
by Sean d'Oliveira | None

By formally declining his $12.75 million player option Monday, A.J. Burnett is officially a free agent.

Both the Phillies and Burnett had declined the mutual option for the 2015 season. Despite turning down his player option, Burnett still wants to pitch in 2015.

His agent, Darek Braunecker, told Ken Rosenthal of FOXsports.com, Burnett would not only play in 2015, but he prefers to play for a contender.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It appears Phillies starting pitcher A.J Burnett will return for a 17th season in the majors in 2015, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Burnett suggested following a rough outing in August that he would "probably" retire, but people close to Burnett believe he will likely pitch next season.
