Burnett (groin) is expected to make his scheduled start Wednesday, MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports.

Burnett (groin) is likely to be replaced by David Buchanan in his next scheduled start Wednesday, as Buchanan was removed from Sunday's start in Triple-A after just one inning, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Burnett (groin) still felt sore Saturday, and it's unclear whether he'll be able to make his next start, which is scheduled for Wednesday against the Braves, Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports.
Burnett said he isn't too concerned about the groin soreness that forced him from Friday's game, the Phillies' official site reports. "I'd just say it felt more snug that anything," he said. "Like everything was tight, opposed to something going. I guess that's a positive. I tried to mask it, but I guess I didn't, huh?...I'm not too concerned about it, but then again, you never know. I'm not a spring chicken anymore. But it takes a lot to get me out of the ballgame. I'm not happy about that."
The Phillies announced Burnett was removed from Friday's start against the Marlins due to groin soreness, MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports.
Burnett was removed from Friday's start in the fifth inning after a visit to the mound from the team's athletic trainer, Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports.
Burnett allowed eight runs, four earned, on five hits in Sunday's loss to the Cubs. He walked six and struck out three. "I just didn't get it done, bottom line," Burnett told MLB.com. "I was pitching behind. That was embarrassing. I don't care who you are or who you play against, that's unacceptable."
