Bur­nett apol­o­gizes

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Yan­kees pitcher A.J. Bur­nett said he has apol­o­gized to his team­mates for a club­house fit that left him with cuts on both hands.

Sport­ing a ban­dage on each palm, Bur­nett said the lac­er­a­tions don’t af­fect his abil­ity to grip the ball. He ex­pects to take his next turn in the ro­ta­tion Fri­day night against Kansas City.

Frus­trated af­ter two in­nings of an in­ef­fec­tive out­ing against Tampa Bay, Bur­nett slammed open a set of dou­ble doors Satur­day, slic­ing both palms. The right-han­der re­turned to the mound in the third but was lifted af­ter fac­ing two more bat­ters.
