A.J. Burnett is expected to be sidelined for four weeks after being diagnosed with a right flexor strain.
Burnett has been given a platelet-rich plasma injection in hopes that it will speed along the recovery process. It has to be considered good news overall, as it appears Burnett's ligament is intact. However, he's far from out of the woods yet, and even if he makes it back he's not a great bet to stay healthy. Even Burnett himself admitted that the four-week timetable is "iffy." The righty also confirmed that he's committed to retirement after the season. The Pirates acquired J.A. Happ last week to bolster their rotation. Aug 3 - 4:27 PM
