Pirates signed RHP A.J. Burnett to a one-year, $8.5 million contract.
Burnett could have exercised a $12.75 million player option to remain with the Phillies, but he'll instead take a $4.25 million paycut to return to pitch for a likely contender and in a place where he had lots of success. The veteran right-hander had a down 2014 season, posting a 4.59 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over 213 2/3 innings. He'll also turn 38 in January. However, Burnett pitched through a hernia for much of the season and will now be reunited with pitching coach Ray Searage. He had surgery to repair the hernia shortly after the season and is expected to be fine for spring training. Assuming health, he's a bounce-back candidate in 2015. Nov 14 - 3:32 PM
