Pirates Place A.J. Burnett On DL 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jun 14, 2013 7:56 pm

The Pirates have placed A.J. Burnett on the disabled list with a strained right calf.


Pittsburgh has replaced him on the roster with right-hander Charlie Morton, who returns to the majors almost a year to the day after having Tommy John surgery.


Burnett is 4-5 with a 3.12 ERA and is second in the National League with 99 strikeouts.
