Pirates P A.J. Burnett Returns To Spring Training After Surgery

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett has returned to spring training with the team eight days after surgery to repair a fractured orbital bone in his face, according to the Associated Press.

Burnett has been cleared to return to workouts, and Saturday he made 50 throws and rode the exercise bike, according to the report.

"The first few (throws) were a little hairy, I'm not going to lie," Burnett told the AP. "But it went fine. I've got a lot of catching up to do. I'm glad to be back down here with the guys."

The injury occurred on Feb. 29, when he fouled a bunt off his face during a drill.
