A.J. and Agent Delay Opt-Out Decision

Tell JP I'll be there in a minute
Jon Heyman of SI.com is reporting that A.J. Burnett and agent Darek Braunecker (pictured) have delayed the decision to opt out of the pitcher's existing contract by a few days. The player wants to give his current club a "fair and full chance" to make a competitive offer.

Jays GM J.P. Riccardi didn't comment on the extended window for negotiation, only reiterating his belief that the club would be in the mix for Burnett's services.

  1. might as well establish a baseline offer to shop around with, right?
