A.J. Burnett continues to make a good impression.
When Burnett was traded to the Pirates, the #34 jersey number belonged to reliever Daniel McCutchen. For compensation for trading Burnett the jersey number, Burnett is setting up a college fund for McCutchen’s soon-to-be-born daughter (she is due in May).

Burnett, based on his interviews, seems like he is a great guy and happy to be in Pittsburgh. Let’s just hope he turns around his career here as well.
