2024 Fantasy Outlook
Burdick was called up from Triple-A Jacksonville by the Marlins early in 2023, and he had a .603 OPS in 37 plate appearances before being sent back down for the rest of the campaign. The 27-year-old clubbed 24 homers and stole 12 bases in 114 games for Jacksonville, though his .217/.325/.443 slash line was a bit underwhelming. Burdick should have a shot to make Miami's Opening Day roster in 2024 and has power and speed potential, but he's not likely to work as much more than a fourth outfielder, and his 36.6 percent strikeout rate at Triple-A last year is a major red flag.

July 1, 2024
The Reds outrighted Burdick to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
While no longer on the 40-man roster, Burdick will remain in the organization after clearing waivers. He will provide the Reds with some outfield depth at Louisville.

2020
Burdick debuted after the trade deadline to little fanfare -- after all he was a 25-year-old batting .229 at Triple-A at the time of his call-up. Those in NL-only leagues who took a flier were left wanting more although Burdick put a nice exclamation point on his season with two homers in his final four games. The holes in Burdick's swing are plentiful as evidenced by his strikeout rates routinely around 30% against upper-level pitching (34.3% in the majors last season). He did not have the green light during his brief time under Don Mattingly, but Burdick has respectable speed and it's possible the team is more aggressive on the bases under new manager Skip Schumaker. Burdick has legitimate power to go along with the speed, and if he could get quicker to the ball and make contact just a bit more consistently, he could emerge as a surprise late bloomer for Miami. First things first, Burdick will need to fight to make the roster out of spring training.
Burdick, the No. 82 overall pick in 2019, did not get invited to Miami's alternate training site, but he did have a loud showing during the fall instructional league. It should be noted that he turns 24 in February, so he was older than most of the true prospects participating in instructs. A chiseled 6-foot, 210 pounds, Burdick is always one of the most physically imposing players on a diamond, and he is an above-average runner to boot. Given his age, he really needs to spend time at Triple-A this year for us to start fully buying into his game performance translating at the highest level. His pole-to-pole power is obvious, but he hasn't been tested by many pitchers who can sequence and locate a diverse repertoire of pitches. The Marlins have a lot of similarly skilled outfield prospects in the upper minors, so Burdick will need to earn his opportunities.
A third-round pick out of Wright State who turns 23 in February, Burdick doesn't have many biographical characteristics we look for in fantasy. However, he put up a 172 wRC+ in the Midwest League after signing, so people are starting to take notice. He is built like Tyler O'Neill, 6-foot with massive forearms and massive raw power, primarily to the pull side. A 23.3 K% against Low-A pitchers is a little concerning, given his age, but he also took his walks (11.1 BB%). He is a sneaky good runner, even at 210 pounds, and could steal double-digit bases in his first full season. Burdick would hardly be the first older college hitter to post monster numbers at Low-A and never be heard from again, so expectations should be tempered. The Marlins may not open him at Double-A, but they will want him to spend most of the year in the upper levels to get a better sense of what they have.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Chance for more playing time
OFMiami Marlins  AAA
May 16, 2023
Burdick, who is starting in right field Tuesday against the Nationals, could see regular playing time for the near future since the Marlins have three outfielders on the injured list.
ANALYSIS
Jazz Chisholm landed on the shelf Tuesday with turf toe, joining fellow outfielders Jesus Sanchez and Avisail Garcia, who are out with hamstring and back injuries, respectively. Burdick opened the season in the minors but was recalled by Miami on May 3, and he's off to a decent start with a .754 OPS in 23 plate appearances. The 26-year-old has struggled with strikeouts throughout his minor-league career, and his 38.9 percent strikeout rate in 25 games with Triple-A Jacksonville to start 2023 is likely an ominous sign for his outlook in the big leagues.
