A.J. Burnett surrendered five runs on 11 hits and two walks while striking out eight batters over six innings in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Mets.

Burnett fell to 6-12 Friday night and has now allowed 13 earned runs over his last three starts. Since returning from the All-Star break, Burnett is 0-4 with a 6.66 ERA through five starts, while owning a 24:11 K:BB rate and serving up four home runs. Until he gets his act back together there is no reason he should be in starting lineups unless desperate for help in the strikeout department. He will look to get back on track when he takes on the Angels on Wednesday.
