RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Nick Burdi.
Burdi made a strong impression in his professional debut in 2014 as he rose from rookie ball to Double-A in dominating fashion. He looked set to perhaps reach the majors in 2015, but surprisingly struggled at Double-A with a 5.63 ERA and 33:22 K:BB ratio in 30.1 innings. Back at High-A, he found his form and had a 2.25 ERA with a 13.1 K/9. He then finished the season with a 1.27 ERA and 16:10 K:BB in 14.1 innings back at Double-A. Despite the outstanding strikeout rates, wildness is a concern as he had a 6.6 BB/9 at Double-A. Burdi hits 100 mph on the radar gun and could be the high-velocity arm the Twins desperately need in the bullpen. However, he'll need to be more consistent and reduce his free passes to get a shot at the majors in 2016.
Burdi was on the radar to be drafted in 2011, but he slipped to the 24th round after struggling with inconsistency during his senior year of high school. At Louisville, he developed into an excellent power arm, showing a plus-plus fastball that touches 100 mph and regularly sits in the high-90s. He keeps hitters off balance with a plus slider than can reach the low-90s make him a potential closer down the road. Burdi made a strong impression in his professional debut with the Twins last summer. After dominating Low-A Cedar Rapids with a 4.15 ERA and 26:8 K:BB ratio in 13 innings, he then struck out 12 batters in 7.1 scoreless innings at Double-A New Britain. He's likely on the fast track to the big leagues, and might be in the Minnesota bullpen by summer.
