Pirates SP A.J. Burnett to miss four weeks due to elbow injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The veteran right-hander is 8-5 with a 3.06 ERA in 21 starts, but the All-Star pitcher is 1-2 with a 10.13 ERA in three starts in the second half.

Pirates starting pitcher A.J. Burnett has been diagnosed with a strained flexor tendon, according to Fox Sports. The UCL in his right elbow is also intact.

The veteran right-hander will undergo treatment in hopes of pitching again this season. He is 8-5 with a 3.06 ERA in 21 starts, but the All-Star pitcher is 1-2 with a 10.13 ERA in three starts in the second half.

Pirates SP A.J. Burnett will decline surgery if recommended
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Surgery is not an option for Pirates starter A.J. Burnett even if doctors tell him he has torn elbow ligament. He would rather pitch through it than undergo a season-ending procedure.

He went on the disabled list Friday with what was described as right elbow inflammation, but an MRI scheduled for Monday could reveal it to be worse.

"I'm prepared for (being told) it just needs some rest and if it's ... the worst (outcome)," Burnett told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "It's a matter of doing enough treatment and building up some pain tolerance so I can stay on mound in the stretch run."

That might be difficult considering how poorly Burnett has performed since the All-Star break. He has surrendered 18 runs on 32 hits in 16 innings and has lost his last two decisions.

Pirates' A.J. Burnett to 15-day disabled list with elbow inflammation
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Pirates have placed struggling pitcher A.J. Burnett on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. Burnett has been dreadful over his last three times out, going 1-2 with a whopping 10.13 ERA in that span.

Burnett claimed he was healthy following Thursday's disaster of an outing, when he allowed seven earned runs against the Reds. But regardless, he will be out for at least the next two weeks.

Pirates SP A.J. Burnett dismissing recent struggles
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Slumping Pirates right-hander A.J. Burnett is downplaying his struggles, which reached a new low in a miserable outing Thursday against Cincinnati.

"I don't think it's a rough patch, man," he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "Just had a bad day, that's all."

Burnett allowed seven runs on 10 hits in 4 1/3 innings in taking his second straight loss. That was the worst of three outings in which he has given up 18 runs on a whopping 32 hits in 16 innings pitched.

He had not surrendered more than four runs in any start in the first half of the season. He has yielded at least five in every start since the All-Star break. His ERA has risen from 2.11 to 3.06 since then.
