Player Notes
A.J. Burnett coughed up five earned runs in six innings Sunday as the Phillies fell to the Mets.

Advice: Burnett struck out a season-high 12 batters over seven innings of one-run ball last Monday against a hot Nationals team, but he struggled badly on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field. The Mets got to him for nine hits, including an Anthony Recker three-run homer. Burnett owns an ugly 4.40 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the year.

A.J. Burnett indicated after Monday's game that he hasn't made a decision on retirement.

Advice: Burnett said earlier this month that he probably won't play next season, but he softened his stance after striking out 12 batters over seven innings of one-run ball on Monday. "I guess you could say I've still got it when I do have it," said Burnett. "My decision will come down to how I feel and what my family and I decide. It's just one start, but to be able to go out and do that tonight makes you wonder." Burnett holds a player option for 2015 which is currently worth $10 million, but will increase to $12.75 million with four more starts.

A.J. Burnett limited the Nationals to one run in seven innings and struck out a season-high 12 in the Phillies' 3-2 win Monday.

Advice: Burnett snapped a six-start losing streak with the performance; the Phillies had been 0-7 in his outings since the All-Star break. It was his eighth career game of at least 12 strikeouts, and his third game in double figures this year. The performance probably comes a little too late to give him trade value, but he will get one more chance to impress before the Aug. 31 postseason-roster deadline.
