When will health find Sean Burnett? Another season ending injury took 2014 from Burnett, who missed the majority of 2013 with a similar injury.
Burnett took the hill three times in 2014, facing three batters and recording two outs. Burnett allowed a leadoff base knock, and notched one fly out and one groundout. Burnett left the mound after one batter (fly out) on May 27th by way of his own will, after suffering what would be a season ending elbow injury.
On June 6th, Burnett had his second Tommy John surgery and could return to pitching near the beginning of the 2015 season.
Prior to his big league outings, Burnett rehabbed (from prior injury) with the Double-A affiliate, Arkansas Travelers. While with the Travelers, Burnett took the mound six times and pitched five a 1/3 innings of work.
Burnett allowed three runs on four hits in his first rehab outing, but shut down bats, allowing one hit in his final five performances while striking out six. Burnett finished 2014 with a 5.06 ERA with the Travs and 13.50 ERA with the Angels.
