A.J. Burnett got thumped for eight runs on 10 hits and four hits with three strikeouts against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Burnett clearly did not have his best stuff to offer on Wednesday night, allowing a season-high eight runs as he continues to have a serious problem in the walk department. He has now issued 41 free passes over his first 79.2 innings, which has resulted in a 1.51 WHIP, which just doesn't cut it. However, he is still forcing a lot of swing-and-misses (67 K) for a pitcher his age, but until he works out his issues with his command, there is no reason he should be started in any format. The Phillies hurler will look to get back on track when he takes on the Padres on Tuesday.
