A.J. Burnett named Pirates starter

A.J. Burnett has been named the Pittsburgh Pirates Opening Day starter this season. Coming off a 16-10 season while posting a 3.51 ERA, Burnett gets the mound on Opening Day for the first time in his career. Burnett might have had a chance to win 20 last season but fractured his orbital bone while fouling a ball in bunt practice. He lost two months of the season.
