Burnett, Braves Have Mutual Interest

According to MLB.com’s Mark Bowman, the Braves and A.J. Burnett have mutual interest.  Preliminary talks have taken place.  Burnett’s agent, Darek Braunecker, downplayed the idea that Burnett strongly desires to play closer to home.  The Braves also like Derek Lowe and Ryan Dempster.  They could try to sign two of the three if a Jake Peavy deal cannot be hammered out.

Burnett has a four-year, $54MM offer from the Blue Jays to shop around.  The Yankees should make an offer soon.
