Sean Burnett, who has battled injuries most of the season, is not recovering quickly.  At least not as quickly as he would have liked.  Therefore, Burnett has once again seen the renowned Dr. James Andrews.  Yesterday marked Burnett's second trip to see Andrews in the last five weeks. According to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, Burnett paid a vist to Dr. Andrews to confirm things were moving in the right direction.  There is not necessarily a concern about any setbacks or additional injury, but Burnett does not know when his elbow will get better or what exactly needs to happen for it to get better.  Surgery is not off the table, but there has yet to be indication that surgery will be necessary. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said the planned visit with Andrews -- Burnett's second in five weeks -- was to "just make sure he's moving in the right direction." Asked of the chances Burnett could go under the knife again, Scioscia said: "I have no idea. I just know he's being evaluated." Burnett has already missed 35 games this season, and there is no return date in sight.  Perhaps the visit to Andrews confirmed that he was on the right path, but until the results of that visit are made public, Angels fans will have to wait, concerned that one of their solid relievers will be out of action for much longer. Blogging for Susie Burnett has made 13 appearances this season and has a sparkling 0.93 ERA.  However, there is a possibility that he does not pitch again this season.  Even if he does not go under the knife, his elbow and forearm are not progressing quickly enough to suggest he'll be back anytime soon.  That impressive ERA will continued to sit on the bench for the foreseeable future.
