It was hard to miss A.J. Burnett’s black eye tonight.
“I’m not going to comment, but I understand you have to ask,” Burnett said. “I think there’s more important things going on right now than my eye.”
Joe Girardi also refused to comment.
Burnett said he has nothing else physically wrong, and he did not need any sort of medical treatment. There was “no doubt” he was going to make tonight’s start.
