Searage expecting Burnett to retire

Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage went on the radio Thursday morning and told 93.7 in Pittsburgh that he expects A.J. Burnett to retire.

“I’m on that percentage point where he’s not going to come back,” Searage said. “Right now I’m leaning that way, where he’s going to retire.”

There has been speculation since the Pirates were eliminated by the Cardinals in last year’s playoffs as to whether the veteran would return for his 16th season (third with the Pirates). After struggling during his time in New York, Burnett experienced a renaissance of sorts in Pittsburgh, where he’s gone 26-21 with a 3.41 ERA.
