Description: Burres allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings as he got a no-decision against the Brewers on Wednesday night.
Insight: Burres is now 2-1 with a 4.91 ERA this season, and should be able to stick in the Pirates' starting rotation in the short-term. (

Description: reports the Pirates are expected to keep Burres in the starting rotation when Ross Ohlendorf (back) returns.

Description: Burres pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits while striking out four and walking three, against the Cubs on Thursday night.

Description: Burres pitched 5.1 shutout innings, allowing four hits, against the Dodgers on Thursday night.
Insight: This was Burres' first major league win since 2008. He is now 1-1 with a 6.00 ERA, so he is not ownable in fantasy leagues right now. (

Description: Burres allowed six runs on eight hits over four innings against the Giants on Monday.
Insight: Burres was called up on Monday to take the Ross Ohlendorf's (back spasms) spot. He is likely headed right back to the minors fairly soon. (
