4:22pm: Blue Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi: "It looks like we’re going to lose Burnett."

1:53pm: O’Brien’s source says the Yankees are going to make an offer to Burnett today or tomorrow.

11:23am: According to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Braves GM Frank Wren confirmed today that he made an offer to free agent starter A.J. Burnett.  Wren added that the proposal does not guarantee a fifth year.  O’Brien believes there is a fifth-year option.  He adds that the deal averages $15MM per year.  It doesn’t really sound like the type of offer Burnett needs to pounce on.
