CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The Phillies had a recovery day Monday at Carpenter Complex, which meant pitchers did not throw any bullpen sessions.

Well, none except A.J. Burnett. He joined the team Sunday after signing a one-year, $16 million deal, so he got started.

"Very good, very good," Phillies pitching coach Bob McClure said. "On both sides of the plate, down in the zone, free and easy. The ball had life to it. He looked real good."
