Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 65 | Slider: 50 | Splitter: 45 | Control: 45 | Overall: 40

After setting an Arizona State record with 38 career saves and dominating in two summers with the U.S. collegiate national team, Burr went to the D-backs in the fifth round of the 2015 Draft. An oblique injury shortened his first full pro season before he posted a 2.42 ERA in the next two while climbing from low Class A to the big leagues. The White Sox acquired him for international bonus pool money in August 2017 and called him up last September.

Burr attacks hitters with a 94-96 mph fastball that reaches 99 mph, and his high arm slot creates armside run and downhill plane that make it difficult to square up his heater. His low-80s slider can be a solid pitch at times but lacks consistency. He has added a mid-80s splitter, though it's still a work in progress and got hammered during his brief time in the Majors.

Burr works with a lot of effort, leading to concerns about his long-term health and hampering his ability to control and command his pitches. There's some funkiness in his delivery that adds to his deception, which could help him eventually claim a role as a seventh-inning reliever in Chicago.
