One of the scouts had A.J. Burnett throwing 98 today on his gun. John Harper of the Daily News mentioned that to him.
“Really?” Burnett said with a grin. “I didn’t mean to.”
Meanwhile, here is what Phil Hughes has done this spring:
7.2 innings, 3 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, 8 strikeouts. He threw three hitless innings today, walking two and fanning four.
