The 6-foot-3, 200-pound righty has been waiting a long time to make his full return to the circuit.  Well over a year out of Tommy John surgery, Burleson looked really sharp and back to 100% (Up to 87 in 2018).  Fastball sat 81-85, Top 87, smooth rhythm, quick arm w/ plenty more in the tank.  Best secondary was hard biting 11/5 curveball (69-71) that’s going to generated a lot of swing n’ misses.  Showed ability to throw CH down in zone or miss down w/ slight fade.  At the plate, balanced setup w/ great bat speed.  Sprayed balls gap-to-gap, consistent hard contact, can get extra base hits in bunches.  Potential collegiate two-way, who has a busy summer in front of him.
