Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Sean Burnett (forearm) is feeling good during his rehab from surgery on his forearm last year, but the Angels continue to take a cautious approach with him. Burnett could be on the disabled list to start the regular season. Burnett threw 25 pitches off a slope Wednesday, March 5, and he "felt good." He expects to throw again Friday, March 7, although he's not throwing at full intensity yet, and he's likely "a week to 10 days" from his first bullpen. Burnett doesn't need as long to get ready, but the team is taking time because he missed all of last year.
