It's easy to look at the aptly surnamed Burger's body and question why he was the 11th player selected in the 2017 draft. The White Sox were able to sign him for $500,000 under slot, which allowed them to go way over slot with their next pick (Gavin Sheets), but in addition to being a bargain, he has some intriguing offensive tools and has surprised evaluators with his defense at third base. For a college bat, his approach was a little too pull heavy (48.7 percent), but he excelled at making contact (14 percent strikeout rate), so it's easy to buy into him posting relatively high batting averages as he moves up the ladder. His top tool is his plus power, and he hit five home runs in his first taste of pro ball, which is notable considering the two college corner infielders who went ahead of him (Brendan McKay and Pavin Smith) combined for four home runs. The ingredients are here for a third baseman who hits 25-to-30 home runs with a .275 average. He should arrive in 2019 or 2020.
