News: Burnett lost Monday against the Mets as he pitched five innings and allowed seven runs, eight hits and two walks to go along with four strikeouts. Impact: Burnett is now 6-10 with a 4.15 ERA and 1.36 WHIP this season. His numbers would look much better if he didn't have four starts this season where he allowed at least six earned runs. There is a chance he could be traded before the deadline, which could impact his value depending on where he lands.(RotoWire, )

News: The Pirates had a scout watch Burnett's start last Friday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: The scout was there outside of his normal coverage, perhaps giving indication that the Pirates are considering bringing Burnett back to bolster their rotation. The Pirates will likely ask the Phillies to pick up some of Burnett's salary if any deal is reached.(RotoWire, )

News: Burnett allowed six runs, 10 hits - the last nine with two out - and one walk in five innings Friday. Impact: Burnett was clearly mad at himself as he walked off the field after the fifth.

News: Burnett managed just five innings Friday night, surrendering six earned runs, 10 hits and a walk while striking out five in a 6-4 loss to the Braves.
