Sean Burnett hurt his back picking up his kid

Sean Burnett left Angels camp to undergo an MRI exam on his lower back soreness, but the results showed nothing serious and he’s expected to miss 4-5 days.

Burnett told reporters that he tweaked his back while picking up his 4-year-old son and putting him a shopping cart at the grocery store.

He has a history of back issues, so it’s something to keep an eye on after Burnett signed a two-year, $8 million deal with the Angels this offseason.
