W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2009 - A.J. Burnett 2-1 7 7 0 0 0 0 45.1 42 27 27 7 19 36 5.36 1.35

Burnett's fastball is still top-notch, but it hasn't been enough to keep him effective. He's had a couple of good starts mixed with a few disappointing ones, but the thing with Burnett is that the potential is always there. On some days he can come out looking like the ace he was meant to be. And after the luck the Twins have run into the last two days, he's due to come out blazing.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2009 - Kevin Slowey 5-1 7 7 0 0 0 0 40.1 58 22 22 7 4 27 4.91 1.54

After a pair of disappointing starts Kevin came out on Wednesday and pitched well, allowing just a run in six innings. To repeat that performance against the Yankees he'll need to re-establish his strikeout pitch; New York's lineup is infinitely more dangerous than Detroit's.
