DUNEDIN, Fla. — A.J. Burnett reported no problems after throwing 54 pitches this morning in a minor league intrasquad game — his first game action since having surgery to repair a fractured orbital bone. Because it was a camp game (in which rules are easily bent), Burnett recorded 12 outs in his three “innings” of work.¬†According to Tim Williams of PiratesProspects.com, Burnett allowed one hit (to Starling Marte) and struck out three.

Burnett will start April 6 for High-A Bradenton against Jupiter (Cardinals) in a Florida State League game. Hmmm … it might not be out of the question to think Burnett will join the Pirates later this month itime for their second homestand of the season.
