George King of the New York Post talked to A.J. Burnett’s agent Darek Braunecker, who said Burnett will "see if the Yankees are interested" if he chooses to opt out of his deal. It always makes sense to keep the Yankees involved.
When we last checked in on the Burnett situation Friday, we were confused by J.P. Ricciardi’s characterization of the talks. Jeff Blair believes the Blue Jays are willing to do a three-year, $48MM contract. Talking to Murray Chass recently, Braunecker downplayed his client’s injury history.
