Pirates Show Interest In A.J. Burnett

by @ 11:23 am. Filed under 2012 Pirates

While other teams are interested, it looks like the Pirates have turned into the favorites to land A.J. Burnett from the Yankees.  He still have two more years on a big contract and while he struggled at times last year, it’s hard to deny Burnett doesn’t still have the stuff.  Still, this is a guy who it seems like year in and year out, he under performs so you wonder if he really has that one more great season left in him.

The Yankees will pick up part of his contract so that’s a good thing because he’s still owed $33 million over the next two years.  It’ll also be interesting to see what the Pirates give up.  They asked for Garrett Jones but the Pirates turned him down.  Even a mediocre Burnett could help the pitching staff though.
