RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Ellis Burks.
Burks is returning from elbow surgery, but not with the Indians. Burks' hitting ability is never in question, but his ability to stay off the DL is in doubt. He has a better chance of staying healthy by signing with an AL team, where he can DH.
The model of consistency, Burks continues to get it done. For as many games as he misses, he will still get your team 400 ABs per season. The one concern in Burks' skill set is the slow erosion of his batting eye - his walk rate is still good, just not what it used to be. He could be a trade candidate for a contender down the stretch.
