A, J. Burnett (7-8, 4.99) tries to right himself in more ways than one tonight when he faces the Royals at Yankee Stadium. Last Saturday, Burnett impolded on the mound, allowing four runs in less than three innings to the Rays. Then, Burnett smashed his hands into a clubhouse door, causing lacerations. He is said to be recovered.
Former Met Brian Bannister (7-8, 5.65) starts for the Royals.
