Impact: Manager Ryne Sandberg said that Burnett has not appeared on team medical reports.

News: Burnett gave up four runs and six hits in six innings against Pittsburgh on Thursday. He walked three and struck out seven. Impact: Burnett was pitching well until the sixth inning, when he allowed three runs. The veteran right-hander has been consistently inconsistent this season, alternating strong starts with clunkers. The fact that he's capable of dominating an opponent in any start, like his 12-strikeout game on Aug. 25 against Washington, is particularly frustrating. If you want to roll the dice and hope for good Burnett next week, he will make two starts on the road against San Diego and Oakland.(RotoWire, )
