Burnett on his recent success: “Healthy, that’s the big thing”

The Washington Nationals acquired left-handed reliever Sean Burnett and outfielder Nyjer Morgan from the Pittsburgh Pirates on June 30, 2009.

Since that trade, Burnett has become a staple in the Nats’ bullpen, filling many roles. Debbi had a chance to catch up with Burnett to talk about his success this year.

Burnett touches on the challenge of pitching to left-handed hitters and admits that he knows there’s room for improvement.
