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.
