Phillies Sign Burnett to One-Year, $16 Million Deal, ESPN Says

Pitcher A.J. Burnett agreed to a one-year, $16 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies, according to ESPN.

The 37-year-old right-hander must work through some additional details with the team before the deal is announced, ESPN said on its website, citing a person familiar with the situation.

Burnett pitched the last two seasons for the Pittsburgh Pirates, going 26-21 with a 3.41 earned run average. He was 10-11 last year with a 3.30 ERA, striking out 209 batters and walking 67 as the Pirates made the postseason for the first time since 1992.

A 15-year Major League Baseball veteran, Burnett pitched seven seasons with the Florida Marlins before three-year stints with the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays. He struggled the most in New York, posting a 4.79 ERA while going 34-35.

In Philadelphia he’ll be joining a rotation that includes 35-year-old Cliff Lee and 30-year-old Cole Hamels. Hamels told reporters today that he won’t be ready for opening day because of tendinitis in his left biceps, according The Phillies open their season March 31 at the Texas Rangers.
