Bucs Orbital fracture for Burnett, surgery Friday

Quote:
Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett sustained a right-eye orbital fracture, and is scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday in Pittsburgh.

The Pirates had no further word on a possible recovery time for Burnett, the right-hander acquired from the Yankees on Feb. 18 as the finishing piece of a team that will be seeking its first winning season since 1992.

Dr. Tim Carey, a Seattle-based ophthalmologist who has cared for numerous professional athletes with the injury, including Major Leaguers, said, "Many of them returned to action within several weeks."
