2019 Fantasy Outlook
Tommy John surgery ended Burdi's 2017 campaign early and cost him most of 2018 as well, as he returned to throw just 6.1 rehab innings at the rookie-league level late in the year. In 77.2 total professional innings, the 2016 26th overall pick owns an excellent 32.8 K% and a poor 12.4 BB%. Some scouts put a legitimate 80 grade on Burdi's fastball, and he also features a pair of strong secondaries in his slider and changeup, but his command is poor. His fastball was sitting in the mid-90s in his rehab outings after previously sitting around 100 mph, and if that doesn't tick back up, Burdi may never reach his potential as an elite bullpen arm. If the velocity comes back after an offseason of rest, Burdi could become a weapon very quickly. Read Past Outlooks

Shut down from fall league

Elbow
November 1, 2018
Burdi (elbow) will not pitch again in the Arizona Fall League due to "general fatigue," though he's expected to be fully healthy prior to spring training, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Burdi missed a majority of the 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in late July of 2017. He wound up pitching in seven games in August and then returned for a few more appearances this past month before getting shut down for the rest of the year. He's expected to vie for a spot in the major-league bullpen this spring if he's back to 100 percent.
