Another day, and another day of A.J. Burnett trade rumors. With the signing of Hiroki Kuroda and the trade for Michael Pineda, the Yankees are left with seven starting pitchers and have no need for Burnett, who has struggled as a Yankee.

Where might he land? The Pittsburgh Pirates seem to be the favorite, as they might be willing to take on about $10-15 million of the remaining $33 million left on Burnett's deal.

The Yankees have also reportedly discussed a Burnett for Travis Hafner swap with the Cleveland Indians.
