News: Burnett fell to 6-14 on Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on six hits while walking four and striking out nine over 7.2 innings in a loss to the Mariners. Impact: The veteran continues to be all over the place for the last-place Phillies, pairing above-average strikeout numbers with contrastingly unimpressive walk totals. Burnett is now winless in his last seven starts (0-6) and owns a continually rising 4.42 ERA to go with his 1.41 WHIP (both of which are slightly worse than his career marks of 4.01 and 1.32) and 76:145 BB:K ratio. He's slated for a tough matchup against the first-place Nationals in his next start Monday.(RotoWire, )

News: Burnett took his league-high 13th loss of the season Wednesday, giving up four runs on five hits with four walks and four strikeouts versus the Angels. Impact: Burnett pitched well through five innings, only to fall apart in the sixth, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk. The right-hander is trending in the wrong direction this season, with ERAs of 4.10 in June, 4.89 in July and 6.59 so far in August. Burnett will try to get things straightened out Tuesday at home versus the Mariners.(RotoWire, )

News: Burnett labored through six innings Friday night, surrendering five earned runs on 11 hits and two walks while collecting eight strikeouts in a 5-4 loss to the Mets. Impact: To say Burnett does not seem to be enjoying himself on the mound in recent weeks would be an understatement. Over his last five starts, the veteran hurler has gone 0-4 while struggling to a 6.66 ERA and 1.83 WHIP across 25.2 innings. Burnett will be in search of a rebound effort Wednesday versus the Angels.(RotoWire, )
