Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 55 60 90-92 94 Heavy fastball with some arm side run that shows some late life; 45 present command
CV 45 55 76-78 79 High 3/4 delivery adds depth to curveball; has 11-5 movement with bite; shows confidence to throw anytime in the count
CH 30 45 80-81 85 Still developing, does show deception and good velocity separation; lacking consistent action and command
Overall

Burrows had to deal with two 15 minute plus delays in this outing, the first a scheduled promo, the second a field sprinkler mishap. Has two quality pitches in his arsenal and the potential to add a third. Has a repeatable, easy delivery that could help him develop into a solid major league starter.
