Burnett blanks Nationals
In his second start back from the DL, AJ Burnett shut out the Nationals and pitched a complete game for his first win (6-0) as a Blue Jay. Amid concerns of health issues, he had 7 strikeouts, allowed only 6 hits, no walks and made well under 100 pitches to finish the game. Glad to see this guy is for real, and a definate hand to Doc Halladay in the rotation. Burnett was still throwing 96mph fast balls in the 9th, showing that his elbow may indeed be back to top form.
As a side note, Josh Towers was again booted down to AAA after he returned and had two brutal starts yet again. Hopefully, they keep him there!
