Set to ramp up activity

August 29, 2019
Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Burdi (biceps) is on track to ramp up his activity within the next 10 days to two weeks, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
ANALYSIS
Initially placed on the injured list in April with a strained biceps, Burdi had resumed a throwing program in June before he was shut down again after developing symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome, for which he required season-ending surgery. The procedure has apparently done its part to alleviate those symptoms over the past two months, so he'll now prepare to take the first meaningful step forward in the rehab process. The Pirates may not have a strong feel for Burdi's availability for the start of the 2020 season until reassessing his condition in spring training.

Twins Team Preview: Help Is On The Way
March 1, 2015
The Twins aren't likely to contend in 2015, but they made some strides last year and have a slew of high-upside prospects like Miguel Sano that could be up by the end of the season.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
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.
