Player Notes
A.J. Burnett struggled with his control in a 3-0 win over the Cubs on Sunday, walking five while pitching seven innings of shutout ball.

Advice: There's good A.J. Burnett, there's bad A.J. Burnett, and then there's weird A.J. Burnett. Sunday saw the latter, as Burnett struck out seven, walked five and allowed just three hits and no runs. Weird. Sunday's lack of control aside, 2015 has mostly seen good A.J. Burnett, though, as he now holds a lovely 1.38 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 43/18 K/BB over 52 innings. He'll face off with the Mets at home in his next start.

A.J. Burnett bested his former team, giving up only two runs (one earned) over seven innings as the Pirates beat the Phillies 7-2 on Tuesday.

Advice: Burnett had a forgettable 2014 season with the Phillies, then poured salt in the wound with Tuesday's terrific outing. Both runs came around in the sixth on Ben Revere's RBI double and a Chase Utley ground out. He allowed six hits in total with a walk and five strikeouts. Burnett will bring an outstanding 1.60 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 36/13 K/BB ratio over 45 innings into a start on Sunday at Wrigley Field against the Cubs.
