From NY Daily News

Burnett was far from good in the first two innings of Saturday’s 10-5 loss to the Rays at the Stadium. That caused him to retreat into the clubhouse, where he slammed both his hands into the clubhouse doors, cutting them. Trying to stay in the game, he lied to Yankee trainers and Joe Girardi, at first telling them he had cut his hands when he braced for a fall as he slipped on the steps.

He faced only two batters in the third inning before Girardi pulled him. After the game, Burnett came clean to Girardi and Brian Cashman, admitting he caused the injury in frustration.

Burnett, 33, said he did not have a chance to address his teammates after Saturday’s game. He was the first one in the clubhouse when it opened at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, and waited to face his teammates. He said he met with them to apologize before he went out to test his hands.
