The Orioles have claimed 25-year old righty reliever Alex Burnett off waivers from the Blue Jays. Burnett pitched in 2 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Blue Jays this year and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP. Burnett pitched in 67 games (0 starts) for the Twins last year and he was 4-4 with a 3.52 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. Burnett has now pitched in 174 games (0 starts) in his first three years in the majors and he is 8-11 with a 4.61 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. I really like this pickup for the Orioles as Burnett will likely help them at some point in 2013.
