Baltimore Orioles Recall Pitcher Alex Burnett

Baltimore Orioles Recall Pitcher Alex Burnett

MLB News: The Baltimore Orioles recalled pitcher Alex Burnett Monday from Triple-A Norfolk to fill in as a middle reliever.

Fantasy Ramifications: While not a stud, he does have a little bit of a resume to go on. He posted a sub-4.00 earned run average in just over 70 innings last  year for the Minnesota Twins. The Orioles ballpark is much more hitter friendly though so don’t expect a duplication of stats. In fact, barring a freak occurrence in which he finds himself in a starring role (he won’t) he will hold no fantasy value. Keep him on the waiver wires.
