4/30/19: Six-foot, 235 pounds with a strong lower half and developed frame. Burgmann is having an impressive year as he transitions to a starting role after being used primarily as a reliever in 2018. Pitches with a clean, repeatable delivery and sustainable effort. Consistent tempo and rhythm with his actions throughout. Puts his front side in unique position at landing. Stride foot actually lands on his glove side. Commonly you see pitchers land across their body, to the arm-side, or in a direct line with their back foot. Burgmann actually finishes with his front foot open to his back foot (when looking from the catcher's perspective). While this could help him clear his front hip and get the rotation he needs out at release, it does give RHH an easier window to track the ball from. Throws from a high ¾ slot but with his front side opening up towards the first base side, it creates more of an over the top angle. Flashed a quality three-pitch mix on this look with a slightly above average fastball at times and a promising curveball. Velo ranged from 91-95 and sat primarily 92-93. It's a relatively straight offering that stays true after release. CB showed above average at its best with sharp bite and depth at 76-77. Also mixes in slider at 79-82 but used sparingly on this look. This was Burgmann's worst start of the season in terms of earned runs allowed. He went 5-plus innings and got tagged for 8 H, 9 R (7 ER) while allowing three home runs to a powerful ASU lineup. He did manage to punch out 9 against 3 walks, so there were still plenty of positive takeaways. Overall, Burgmann might not have much projection remaining, but he does have arm strength to go with a swing and miss breaking ball. He should have the chance to continue starting as a professional but a move back to the bullpen could make him a quick mover through the minor leagues. (Jurik)

3/2/19: A physical 6-foot, 235-pound righthander with a strong lower half, Burgmann showed the ability to maintain the quality of his stuff over his seven strong innings Sunday against Minnesota, sitting mostly at 91-92 mph throughout his outing, bumping 93 a time or two. Early in the game, he featured a hammer curveball with sharp 12-to-6 action at 77-80, and in the middle innings he started leaning more on a very good 81-83 slider with hard, late tilt. It's rare to see a college pitcher with two different breaking balls that are both swing-and-miss offerings, but that's what Burgmann has. He threw a couple of below-average changeups at 86 mph that function like BP fastballs. His delivery has a little front-side funk with his glove hand, and he has a shorter arm circle with an over-the-top delivery that helps him hide the ball fairly well. His fastball was a bit straight, but he showed the ability to locate it to both sides of the plate, especially to the arm side to lock up righthanded hitters on the inner half. (Fitt)
