    A.J. Burnett

    A.J. Burnett’s post-baseball mornings will begin at 5:50. Burnett was known as an early riser during his pitching career, preferring to complete his workouts at dawn, but now he has another reason. A 5:50 alarm means he spends the morning with his sons, 14-year-old A.J. Jr. and 11-year-old Ashton, before the school bus gets them at the end of the driveway at 7.

    “And then I’m sure Karen’s going to try to get me to go to some gym class with her,” Burnett said of his wife.

    This is the retirement Burnett has envisioned. He declared the 2015 season, his 17th in the majors, his last. He chose to spend it with the Pirates, taking a pay cut to do so, and made his first All-Star team.

    Chris Perez

    Former Indians closer Chris Perez retired earlier this week, the International League’s transaction log shows, but no one noticed until Wednesday.

    Wednesday, coincidentally, is also National Dog Day, which is fitting because Perez is most famous for getting a shipment of weed at his house in 2013 and telling the cops it was for his dog.
