2020 Fantasy Outlook
Burke debuted in late August and remained in the big leagues for six starts despite not having much success, struggling to a 7.43 ERA and a 14:11 K:BB in 26.2 innings. He was good but not dominant in 13 minor-league starts, posting a 3.90 ERA and a 24.6% strikeout rate. Shoulder woes held him back throughout the season and ended his year early, though he's not expected to undergo surgery. Still, those issues add further risk to a player who has yet to establish himself at the big-league level. Burke hay have to prove himself at the Triple-A level, where he's made just two starts, before he gets his next big-league shot. If Burke eventually locks up a rotation spot, he projects as more of a back-end starter, with fringy control of a decent repertoire. The combination of moderate upside and risk from both injury and a lack of track record means Burke isn't very exciting yet in most redraft formats. Read Past Outlooks

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Burke kicked it into a new gear after advancing to the Double-A level last season, posting 1.95 ERA and 25.8 K-BB% over 55.1 innings for the Rays' Montgomery affiliate. His previous career high in K-BB% was 17.3. The lefty's prior success stemmed in large part from a lot of weak contact in the air -- his infield-flyball rates have ranged from 17.4% to a preposterous 36.8%. His opponents' hit rate last season was probably lower than it should have been considering a healthy 22.1% line-drive rate, and he was rather fortunate with his HR/FB, which sat at just 3.6%. Regardless, the Rangers' scouts saw enough to view Burke as a quality piece in the return for Jurickson Profar. With Texas, Burke will be given a long leash to improve his changeup and command. If the change never comes along, Burke call fall back on his plus fastball and plus slider as a high-leverage reliever.
