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. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Nate Orchard (groin) is questionable for Monday's game against the Ravens.
Orchard has developed into a run-stuffing linebacker in the NFL, and will be missed if he cannot take the field in Week 12 against the Ravens, who will be looking to establish the run with Joe Flacco out of action. He has not built upon his sack abilities that he showcased in college at Utah, but the Browns are happy that he has developed into a run-stopper as their defense has been porous against running backs the past couple of seasons.
