Blue Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi told MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian tonight that A.J. Burnett is "not going anywhere." He also has yet to have serious trade talks regarding other Jays veterans.
Ricciardi was careful when asked about the recent rumor of the team possibly offering Burnett an additional $2MM per year to remain with the team. He said ownership would have to be on board for something like that, but he’s comfortable with the current situation.
