MASN’s Roch Kubatko reports that the Orioles are feeling out free agent pitcher A.J. Burnett‘s interest in prolonging his career. If the right-hander wants to go for one more season, the Orioles will want to start a discussion. Kubatko adds that the O’s already met with representatives of Burnett at the winter meetings in Florida.
Burnett will turn 37 years old on January 3. He has been weighing retiring after 15 seasons in the Majors or coming back for another season. He spent 2013 with the Pirates, helping them end a 21-year playoff drought by posting a 3.30 ERA in 191 innings and leading the league averaging 9.8 strikeouts per nine innings.
