Yankees Willing To Assume $8MM In Burnett Trade

The Yankees will listen to offers for starter A.J. Burnett, reports George A. King III of the New York Post, and they're willing to assume $8MM of the $33MM owed to him for 2012-13. 

I don't think teams will be lining up to pay Burnett $25MM over two years, however, so the Yankees will probably have to do better to move him.  Burnett, 34, posted a 5.15 ERA, 8.2 K/9, 3.9 BB/9, 1.47 HR/9, and 49.2% groundball rate in 190 1/3 innings this year.  A change of scenery might help.
