As I did with CC Sabathia, I want to briefly run through A.J. Burnett’s history against the Twins. For his career, Brunett is 2-1 with 3.72 ERA against Minnesota in 6 starts. This season, AJ started twice against the Twins and finished 1-0 with a 2.77 ERA. He threw into the 7th in both games, and allowed 2 runs in both as well. However, he did allow plenty of baserunners in both games, with 11 reaching in the first and 12 in the second. His problem was control, as he walked 10 in the two games combined. In case you were wondering, Cash caught the first one and Posada caught the second.
In regard to individuals, Joe Mauer is the only Twin with more than 10 PA’s against AJ to have an OPS over .700, with a 929. Cuddyer comes in with a 498, Kubel is at .647, andYoung is at an even .700. It might make sense to pitch around the soon-to-be MVP.
