A.J. Burnett's Starts to be Limited

The Blue Jays No. 2 pitcher A.J. Burnett will not come back from disabled status much before the middle of May, meaning he should not be depended upon for much more than 25 starts on the season. Burnett has been sidelined by pain in his throwing arm precipitated by the breakup of scar tissue resulting from Tommy John surgery two years ago. All things considered, the injury is not severe in relative terms.
