2016

2015

There is zero doubt that Burns can flat-out fly, proven by his 128 stolen bases combined in his last two minor league seasons. The issue for Burns is whether he can hit well enough to put that speed to use in the majors. After a 2013 season split across High-A and Double-A, Burns hit .312 with a .422 OBP over 444 at-bats, but 2014 did not go nearly as well. Burns hit only .237 in 2014 with a poor .315 OBP over 473 at-bats between Double and Triple-A. Any thought that he might be a contributor in the majors in 2015 took a hit with his lack of offensive output last season. He will likely start 2015 in Triple-A, but with Coco Crisp and Craig Gentry being quite injury-prone, Burns could provide a lot of fantasy value very quickly with any sort of regular playing time in Oakland.
