Burnett to Be Examined After Bunt Hits Him in Eye, MLB.com Says

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.
