Burnett Rejects Arb Offer

MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian says A.J. Burnett rejected the Blue Jays’ offer of arbitration, as expected.  Burnett has multiple offers on the table, perhaps including one for five years guaranteed.  He’s a Type A free agent, so the Jays will get two draft picks if he signs elsewhere.

One of Burnett’s offers is from the Braves.  It is reportedly worth $75MM over five years if the fifth year vests.
