Name: Sean Burke, RHP, St. Johns Shrewsbury
Rank: 12th in New England's Class of 2018
Scouting Report: High level prospect on the mound, additionally, showed a tremendous amount of potential at the plate. Tee exit velocity of 93 mph. Hits out of a wide base, with a slight forward lean as the ball approaches. The hands are quick, direct and the path is clean. Has leverage due to the fact he is 6-foot-4, 190-pounds. The frame projects as well, could fill out nicely. Showed good footwork at first base and the ability to make all the throws. On the mound, the fastball comes at you from a higher than ¾ arm slot with downhill plane to it. Fastball touched 88 mph, sitting 85-86. The breaking ball shows signs of being a good pitch as he tries to keep it small with depth, sits 68-72 mph. The changeup is a work in progress, sitting 77-78. The delivery is athletic, above average athleticism in everything he did. He repeats the athletic lift, long arm path and good extension out front. Has slight forward lean as he lifts and coils his top half. High level guy.
College Outlook: Power right-hander at the next level. The secondary stuff has to come on but the arm is legit and the frame is excellent. Very good athlete as well
Receiving Interest: ACC/SEC/Big Ten Schools
