A.J. Burnett Needs Surgery For Orbital Fracture

Recently acquired Pittsburgh Pirates hurler, A.J. Burnett, fouled a ball off of his face while bunting yesterday, and will need surgery to repair an orbital fracture around his right eye, according to the Pittsburgh Pirates official Twitter account.

Burnett, who left camp due to the injury, is scheduled to have surgery tomorrow. There is no word on how long he will be out of commission.

Burnett, 34, went 11-11 last season with a 5.14 ERA in 32 starts for the Yankees. It marked the second consecutive season that the right-hander posted an ERA above 5.00, and the fourth year the hurler failed to post a sub 4.00 ERA. The former 18-game-winner, however, has been able to pitch 185 innings-or-more in each of the past four years.
