Several Phillies' and ex-Phillie players will face off against their former teams throughout this week.  

One of them is A.J. Burnett playing against the Pirates, for whom he played the last two seasons.  The other is Brad Lincoln, who also pitched for the Pirates as a reliever from 2010-2012, and whom the Phillies got in a trade involving Erik Kratz from the Blue Jays.  

The last notable pitcher is an ex-Phillie, J.A. Happ, who now plays for the Blue Jays, and who will pitch Wednesday in the opener against his former team.  Happ was a starting and relieving pitching with the Phillies from 2007-2010.
