Player Notes
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Phillies right-hander A.J. Burnett would prefer to be dealt to the Pirates and that Pittsburgh players are lobbying for his return.

Advice: Burnett made a bit of an awkward exit from Pittsburgh when he signed with the Phillies during the offseason, but it's water under the bridge at this point. However, one possible hangup in a deal is his player option for 2015. He's currently at 21 starts this season, but his 2015 salary would rise to $8.5 million at 24 starts, $10 million at 27, $11.75 million at 30 and a maximum of $12.75 million if he makes it to 32 starts.

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, Pirates right-hander A.J. Burnett can be traded to the Orioles, Red Sox, Red Sox, Reds, Royals, Mets, Yankees, Pirates, Cardinals, and Nationals without his consent.

Advice: Similar to teammate Cliff Lee, Burnett has a 20-team no-trade list. The Pirates and Orioles are two of the teams who have been scouting Burnett recently and the trade list won't be an issue.

Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the Pirates had a scout at A.J. Burnett's last start on Friday in Atlanta.

Advice: Gelb notes that it wasn't the scout's normal assignment, as he was clearly there to see Burnett. Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reported Saturday that the Phillies and Orioles have had preliminary discussions on a trade involving Burnett, but Gelb thinks the Pirates might wind up being a better fit. Burnett, of course, pitched for the Pirates from 2012-13.

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Phillies and Orioles have had preliminary discussions on a trade involving A.J. Burnett.

Advice: Before he signed with the Phillies, the Orioles expressed interest in the veteran right-hander. Being that it's his hometown team, it's reasonable to believe that the O's would be a nice fit. Stay tuned.

A.J. Burnett surrendered six runs in five innings of work in a loss to the Braves on Friday.

Advice: Not the best night for his trade value. Burnett gave up four runs in the second inning and two more in the fifth to put himself in line for the loss. He struck out five and walked one en route to his ninth loss of the season. The veteran right-hander now owns a 4.08 ERA and 113/58 K/BB ratio over 136 2/3 innings this season. He'll only have another couple of starts before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, with a date against the Giants in San Francisco up next.
