2020 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Zack Burdi in 2020. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a $2.13 million contract with the White Sox in June of 2016.
Beginning year at Double-A
PChicago White Sox  AA
April 5, 2020
The White Sox optioned Burdi to Double-A Birmingham on March 11.
ANALYSIS
The hard-throwing righty is still viewed as one of the more intriguing reliever prospects in the White Sox's farm system, even though Tommy John surgery and a dislocated knee have cost him much of the last three seasons. Now healthy, Burdi could move quickly to the majors if he's able to dominate against minor-league hitters with his big fastball early on in 2020.

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.
