Follow us on:

March 1 (Bloomberg) -- Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett will have another examination of his right eye, which was injured when he fouled a bunt back into his face, MLB.com reported.

Burnett will undergo tests today in Pittsburgh, General Manager Neal Huntington told MLB.com.

Burnett, 35, had to leave a bunt-batting tournament in spring training when he undercut the ball off a pitching machine, causing it to ricochet off his face, the website said.

He was acquired by the Pirates from the New York Yankees on Feb. 18.
