According to the Boston Globe, the Phillies continue to eye Blue Jays’ pitcher A.J. Burnett. The most interesting thing about Burnett this year is his inconsistency. Look at his game log. His starts are either great or awful.
Either way, he would be an upgrade over Adam Eaton. But, is he worth the risk? He can opt out of his contract at the end of the year and be a rental or he could not opt out and be a big contract for two more years.
