05:42 PM ET 07.05 | A.J. Burnett has not pitched a game in almost a month after injuring his calf. Instead of going the conventional route with a rehab assignment in the minors, it sounds like Burnett will return Sunday against the Chicago Cubs. Burnett apparently showed enough in simulated games to convince the training staff he was good to go without a rehab assignment. Burnett will probably be on a restricted pitch count against the Cubs, but that is not necessarily a bad thing against a team like Chicago anyway.

Facing the Cubbies is pretty darn close to a rehab assignment in the minors. Just more drunk fans at the Wrigley Field.
