|Nov. 14 3:15 PM PT4:15 PM MT5:15 PM CT6:15 PM ET18:15 ET23:15 GMT7:15 4:15 PM MST6:15 PM EST6:45 PM VEN3:15 UAE (+1)5:15 PM CT-Burnett is back with the Pittsburgh Pirates. The pitcher agreed Friday to an $8.5 million, one-year contract - $4.25 million less than the player option he turned down with Philadelphia.
Analysis: A 37-year-old right-hander, Burnett went 26-21 with a 3.41 ERA for Pittsburgh in 2012-13, helping the Pirates return to the postseason in 2013 following a 21-year drought. Burnett spurned an offer Pittsburgh last offseason and eventually signed with Philadelphia, where he went 8-18 with a 4.59 ERA in 34 starts. His 18 losses led the majors. Burnett and the Phillies both declined a $15 million mutual option, and the pitcher then turned down his player option.

Burnett was 8-18 with a 4.59 ERA last season. The 37-year-old led the NL in losses.
Analysis: Burnett's decision helps the rebuilding Phillies trim a hefty payroll. They spent more than $184 million on a roster that finished last in the NL East for the first time since 2000. Burnett signed with the Phillies in February and earned $15 million in 2014. He is 155-150 with a 4.04 ERA in 16 seasons with five teams.
