Corbin Burnes
23-Year-Old PitcherRP
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Burnes showed flashes of brilliance while throwing just 35.2 innings in his 2016 professional debut, but that turned out to be a sign of things to come, as he flat-out dominated minor-league hitters in 2017. He fell just short of averaging a strikeout per inning at both the High-A and Double-A levels, but was otherwise spectacular, limiting opposing hitters to just a .200 batting average while also posting a sparkling 4.20 K/BB and giving up just three home runs. He doesn't possess elite strikeout potential, but he will at least be serviceable in that area given his deep, high-quality arsenal, which includes a mid-90s fastball, a hard slider, and also a curveball and changeup. Burnes figures to get a run at the Triple-A level before he makes his big-league debut, but as long as he does not fall victim to the thin air of Colorado Springs, he stands a good chance to join the Brewers at some point in the summer of 2018.

Picks up win No. 4
PMilwaukee Brewers
September 10, 2018
Burnes notched his fourth victory of the season in Sunday's victory over the Giants.
ANALYSIS
Burnes was the first reliever into the game Sunday, and after tossing a perfect sixth inning he was the pitcher of record when Jonathan Schoop hit a go-ahead grand slam the next inning to give the Brewers a lead they would never relinquish. Burnes has been particularly sharp of late, posting a 0.77 in both the ERA and WHIP categories to go along with a 10:3 K:BB in 11.2 innings over his last seven outings.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Burnes was completely off the prospect radar his freshman year at St. Mary's, when he posted a 6.18 ERA as he bounced between the rotation and the bullpen. But over the next three years, Burnes developed into a major prospect, thanks in particular to a notable summer in the Cape Cod League following his junior season. Now he owns a fastball that sits 92-95 to go with a changeup and breaking ball, all capable of drawing whiffs. That was enough to earn Burnes a fourth-round selection from the Brewers. He looked fantastic in his first professional action, as he struck out 41 batters and allowed just eight runs over 35.2 innings between rookie ball and Low-A Wisconsin. At 21 years old, he should be able to handle batters at those levels, but his stock will be worth watching as he progresses up the ladder.
