Player Notes
A.J. Burnett (elbow) is hoping to rejoin the Pirates' rotation during the September 15-17 series against the Cubs.

Advice: Burnett was thrilled with how a 70-pitch simulated game went on Sunday, saying there's "no comparison" to how he feels now and how he did when he injured his elbow in July. He will not go out on a rehab assignment before returning. J.A. Happ has pitched well in Burnett's place, posting a 1.98 ERA over five starts.

A.J. Burnett (elbow) will throw a three-inning simulated game on Sunday.

Advice: Burnett made it through another bullpen session Tuesday without issue and is ready to take the next step in his rehabilitation from a flexor tendon strain. If everything continues to go smoothly, the veteran right-hander could rejoin the Pirates' rotation in early-to-mid September.

A.J. Burnett (elbow) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

Advice: Burnett has been sidelined since July 30 with a flexor strain in his right elbow. The veteran right-hander received a platelet-rich plasma injection to help with the healing process and recently began throwing off a mound. He's eyeing a return in September. "There’s an intense want-to and I believe he’s also being smart with the guy he needs to be smart with, listening to, on the how-to on the [return-to-pitch] plan," said Pirates manager Clint Hurdle. "I think he’s healthy, proves he’s healthy, it could come sooner than later."
