A.J. Burnett fell to 6-14 after allowing five runs on six hits and four walks with nine strikeouts over 7.2 innings against the Mariners on Tuesday.
Burnett has been a absolute mess lately, having now allowed four runs or more in five of his last seven starts. He is now sitting with a league-leading 14 losses while owning a 4.42 ERA and 1.41 WHIP through 27 starts as he continues to struggle with his command (76 BB) along the way. Unless he turns thins around fast, his fantasy value will remain limited even out he has been striking out his fair share of batters all season long (145 K through 171.0 IP). He will look to get back on track when he takes on the Nationals on Monday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Mike Scott will not play Saturday.
Scott has shed his walking boot, but is still a couple of practices away from returning to the floor in a game. His sprained left big toe, which he suffered in a game on March 11 against the Nuggests, is still giving him trouble and he is probably a week or so away from joining the team on the court.

Paul George (leg) ruled out for Sunday.
He has not been cleared by the team for game action, so despite his desire to play again before the regular season is done, he will have to miss some more action. Consider him day-to-day for now. Until he returns to action, he is worthless for fantasy purposes. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
