Burnette is athletically built at 6-foot-2, 185 pounds. He’s a two-way player, but will only pitch at the Super 60. He has a fresh arm, having only pitched for a couple years and the arm action is loose, easy and athletic from a high-3/4 slot. His fastball sits in the high 80s and has been up to 90 in the past with some arm-side run. He has feel for his changeup with arm-side sink at 79-82. His curveball varies in shape and sits in the low 70s, but has shown sharp action and depth.
