• Hurdle said A.J. Burnett, on the disabled list retroactive to June 9, "has been nowhere near a mound" as he recovers from a right calf strain.
"We're working on flexibility, mobility and strengthening," Hurdle said. "That's not to say that can't change in another 24 hours with A.J. He's really tried to not do some things at all and do a lot of things. As far as his rehab goes, he didn't want to do anything as far as moving around other than strengthening, loosening and working on the flexion part of it.
