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.
For the rest of the players who don't have ties with former teams in the first week, here is the pitching schedule for the entire first week of Spring Training.
Wednesday VS. Blue Jays
Thursday AT Blue Jays
Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez
Friday VS Tigers
Saturday AT Yankees
Sunday VS Pirates
Note: There will be an update every time a new pitching schedule is released.
