Pirates Still Expect A.J. Burnett To Return 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Dec 16, 2013 2:09 pm

The Pittsburgh Pirates still expect A.J. Burnett to return for one more season.

Pittsburgh has entertained signing other veteran starters in the event Burnett retires, or signs elsewhere.

"There's no reason for [Burnett] not to be back," said one Pirates official. "He can still pitch at a high level and we think he only wants to play for us. Seems like a no-brainer."
