Burnes allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks with six strikeouts in four-plus innings Friday versus Atlanta. He did not factor in the decision.
The right-hander matched his season-high marks for hits and runs allowed in a start. Burnes was in trouble from the start as Atlanta hung four runs on him in the first inning before adding one more in the fifth. By then, Milwaukee had recovered to keep him out of the loss column. The 26-year-old's ERA rose to 2.46 with a 0.97 WHIP and 152:20 K:BB through 106 innings this year. He's pitched well enough to earn the benefit of the doubt that Friday was just a hiccup, but he lines up for a tough home matchup versus San Francisco during next weekend's series.
Burnes (6-4) allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts through six innings to earn the win in Saturday's 6-1 victory over the White Sox.
Burnes was perfect his first time through the order in a dominant outing. While his six strikeouts may be just half of the clean dozen that he registered his last time out against the Reds, Chicago was thoroughly perplexed by his nasty cutter. Burnes, who takes pride in his all-world ability to find the zone, won't be pleased about walking in a run in the fifth inning. However, the two free passes he issued Saturday are the most he's allowed in a game since June 25.
Burnes tossed 8.1 scoreless innings and picked up the win in Sunday's victory over the Reds. He allowed five hits and posted a 12:1 K:BB in the contest.
Burnes started for the first time since tossing two innings in the All-Star Game, and he picked up right where he left off at the end of the first half, limiting the opposition to one earned run or fewer for the fourth straight start. Burnes has lowered his ERA from 2.62 to 2.16 since the beginning of that stretch, and with him punching out 12 batters Sunday, he is now tied for fifth in the league with 140 strikeouts.
Burnes (knee) allowed a run on six hits and struck out eight over 5.2 innings in a no-decision in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Mets.
Burnes left his last start with knee soreness, but it didn't seem to be a factor Wednesday. The right-hander left the contest in line for the win, but Josh Hader's first blown save of the season denied Burnes a decision. Through 87.2 innings, he's posted a 2.36 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 128:15 K:BB. The 26-year-old's next start is expected to come after the All-Star break.
Burnes (knee) will start Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Mets, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander came out of his last start Thursday with knee soreness, but he's good to go for his next turn through the rotation. Burnes and Jacob deGrom will be matched up in a showdown of All-Star pitchers in the seven-inning matinee.
Burnes received treatment on his sore knee Friday and the club currently anticipates he'll be able to make his next start, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The club said Thursday that they were optimistic Burnes would be able to take his turn in the rotation next week, and the training staff has yet to see anything with the right-hander that suggests that won't be the case. Burnes currently lines up to take the ball Wednesday against the Mets.
Burnes is dealing with soreness in his knee but is optimistic he will be able to take his next turn through the rotation, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinelreports.
Burnes exited his start Thursday with a trainer, but he downplayed the injury after the contest. He has apparently been dealing with some soreness in his knee, which was aggravated when his cleat got stuck on the mound when delivering a pitch. Nevertheless, both Burnes and manager Craig Counsell seem to think he won't be forced to miss much time, if any.
Burnes exited Thursday's start with a trainer and appeared to be in discomfort, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Burnes recorded the first out of the eighth inning when he was visited on the mound by a team trainer. It's possible that he was lifted as a precaution, as he had already thrown 94 pitches and was deep into the game. Burnes dominated the Pirates prior to his exit, allowing only one earned run on four hits and one walk while striking out four.
Burnes allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out seven over six innings in Friday's win over the Rockies. He didn't factor into the decision.
Burnes began Friday's contest by tossing five scoreless innings, but he gave up three singles in the sixth inning and allowed a run to come across. The Brewers didn't get on the board until the bottom of the seventh inning, so the right-hander was forced to settle for his fourth no-decision in his last five starts. He had given up eight runs (seven earned) in 9.1 innings across his last two appearances, but he was able to bounce back Friday. Burnes tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Cubs on Wednesday.
Burnes allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks over 5.1 innings in Friday's loss to Colorado. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.
It was another subpar outing for Burnes as he couldn't really find his groove Friday. He allowed three runs before being taken out of the contest for Brent Suter, who would let an inherited runner reach home. Burnes has given up eight runs (seven earned) across 9.1 innings over his last two outings, raising his ERA to 2.62. The 26-year-old righty is lined up for a rematch at home with the Rockies next week.
Burnes allowed four runs (two earned) on eight hits and three walks with eight strikeouts across four innings versus Pittsburgh on Saturday. He did not factor in the decision.
Saturday marked just the second time in 11 starts he's allowed three walks, and the eight hits also matched a season high. Burnes didn't help his own cause much -- Pittsburgh's first two runs came on his own throwing error. His ERA ticked up to 2.13 with a 0.84 WHIP and 102:10 K:BB across 63.1 innings this season. The right-hander lines up for a road start in Colorado in next weekend's series.
Burnes (3-4) allowed four hits over seven shutout innings Sunday, striking out 13 and earning a win over the Diamondbacks.
Burnes has been dominant for most of the 2021 campaign, but Friday's performance was his best of the season. He fanned a season-high 13 batters in his longest outing to date. All four hits against him were singles, and only one Diamondback reached scoring position. The 26-year-old lowered his season ERA to 1.97 alongside an outrageous 94:7 K:BB. Burnes is lined up for another promising matchup next weekend at home against the Pirates.
Burnes didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Tigers, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out seven.
The right-hander exited after 93 pitches (61 strikes) in line for his third win of the year, but Trevor Richards promptly gave up the tying run in the top of the seventh as soon as he was out of the game. Burnes had to settle for his sixth quality start, and he'll carry a 2.24 ERA and eye-popping 81:7 K:BB through 52.1 innings into his next outing.
Burnes (2-4) took the loss Tuesday, allowing four runs on two hits and three walks over six innings as the Brewers fell 7-1 to the Padres. He struck out seven.
The right-hander uncharacteristically had some trouble finding the plate, tossing 58 of 95 pitches for strikes, but he still did an effective job limiting traffic on the basepaths. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for his catcher -- the Padres made life miserable for Omar Narvaez by going 6-for-6 on steal attempts during the game, allowing them to rack up offense despite only five hits and zero homers. It's only the second time all season Burnes has been tagged for more than two earned runs in a start, and he'll carry a 2.33 ERA, 0.65 WHIP and 74:5 K:BB through 46.1 innings into his next outing.
Burnes allowed two earned runs on two hits and a walk while striking out nine across six innings Wednesday against the Royals. He did not factor into the decision.
Burnes allowed his only two hits of the game in the second inning, one of which was a two-run home run by Michael Taylor. He was stellar otherwise, and has now struck out at least nine hitters in each of his seven starts this season. Despite maintaining a 1.79 ERA and 67:2 K:BB across 40.1 frames, Burnes has earned only two wins. He's projected to draw his next start Tuesday against San Diego.
Burnes (2-3) allowed one earned run on five hits and one walk while striking out nine, taking the loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.
Burnes struck out 58 batters to start the season before issuing his first walk in the fifth inning to Tommy Edman, breaking Kenley Jansen's modern-day record for most strikeouts to start a season without allowing a walk. Unfortunately, Burnes was handed the loss after just one run allowed in five innings as the Brewers' offense once again failed to provide any run support. The 26-year-old has a 1.57 ERA in six starts and the Brewers have only managed to win two of them. He has the best K/9 amongst starters in baseball with 15.2.
Burnes (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Burnes spent two weeks on the injured list after he tested positive for COVID-19 in late April, but he was asymptomatic and able to work out on his own while in quarantine. The right-hander will start Thursday's game against the Cardinals. In his first five starts this season, Burnes posted a 1.53 ERA and 0.55 WHIP in 29.1 innings.
Burnes, who will be activated from the COVID-19 injured list to start Thursday's game against the Cardinals, confirmed that he was shut down as a result of a positive test for the coronavirus, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Burnes noted that he was unsure how he contracted the virus, but since he was asymptomatic throughout his quarantine period, he's optimistic he'll be able to pick up where he left off prior to landing on the IL. Because he didn't exhibit symptoms of the virus, Burnes was cleared to work out and throw on his own while in quarantine. The Brewers could still look to limit his workload to some extent Thursday, but Burnes should be in line for a relatively normal start as he returns to action for the first time since April 26.
Burnes (COVID-19) will start Thursday's game against the Cardinals, manager Craig Counsell told MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM.
The righty last appeared April 26 in what was his worst start of the season to date, allowing four earned runs in five innings against the Marlins. Despite the rough outing, Burnes still boasts a 1.53 ERA and his high-strikeout, low-walk dominance place him right back in the top tier of MLB starters upon Thursday's return.
Burnes (undisclosed) will rejoin his teammates Monday and will throw a bullpen session that day with an eye towards being activated from the COVID-19 injured list later in the week, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Burnes' dominant start to the season was interrupted by a trip to the injured list for unspecified reasons in late April. His exact return date remains unclear, but he should start sometime next week and will look to build on an incredible start which has seen him post a 1.53 ERA, 0.55 WHIP and 49:0 K:BB through five starts.
