Sean Burnett hasn’t pitched since Sunday because of forearm soreness and Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that the left-hander won’t be available out of the Angels’ bullpen until at least Thursday.
Burnett underwent an MRI exam and “no significant damage” was found, but according to manager Mike Scioscia the Angels “have had some kid gloves on him when he’s needed to rebound a bit” because “he’s a vital piece of our bullpen and we need him 100 percent.”
Burnett, who signed a two-year, $8 million deal with the Angels as a free agent this offseason, allowed just one run in eight innings before the injury.
