It appears likely A.J. Burnett will be signed before the Winter Meetings.
The Braves have made the right-hander a four-year offer with a vesting option for a fifth season according to reports out of Atlanta. The Yankees are expected to counter that offer sometime tomorrow if they have not already.
The Yankees are not believed to be interested in a long-term deal with Burnett, so their offer could be for a shorter-term deal but with a higher average annual value.
The Braves are believed to have offered four years and $64 million.
Meanwhile, Giants GM Brian Sabean said tonight that his team is not planning to make an offer to CC Sabathia, acknowledging that other teams can outmuscle them financially.
