No word yet on the terms of the deal. Obviously this ends the saga of where Burnett will eventually sign. It will be interesting to see what Burnett received on the one-year deal, to see if it matched the $14.1 M for a qualifying offer. I’ll keep this post updated with any additional details.
UPDATE 12:09 PM: Burnett gets $16 M, per Ken Rosenthal.
Burnett with #Phillies – one year, $16M. Other details to come.
