1/09/22

Physical: 6-2, 175 pounds; Projectable, athletic build. 6.67 runner in the 60.

Offensively: RHH. Even setup, with feet just outside his shoulders; Higher set hands that get pulled into scap and in a good early connection position. Up and down stride for timing. Stays behind the ball while showing a strong lower half. Showed a slight lift to the ball with a one-handed finish. More line drives than flyballs and groundballs with a peak exit velocity of 101.00 MPH via Trackman. Loose hands create whippy bat speed. Consistent barrels out front. Standout 100% hard hit rate and average EV of 97 mph. Easy pullside HR pop.

Defensively: INF - 85.00 MPH.  Advanced athletic actions. Gets low to the ball and catches out front. Gets to his spots with ease. Quick out the glove. Easy arm strength. 5/6 accurate throws during the workout. Can stay at SS down the line.

OC Preseason All-State: Six-foot-1, 170-pounds, large, physical, and strong frame. Higher waist with thickness in lower half. Squared shoulders with a thick neck. Burns is the 14th ranked player in the Class of 2023 Rankings and the starting QB on Mission Viejo’s 10-0 freshman football team. He’ll also be a name every college recruiter will know before too long, assuming they don’t already. He’s not a football player playing baseball, he’s an athlete who plays football and baseball and does both very well. Opened with a laser-time 6.89 60 before entering the hitting wheel where he recorded a 91 mph exit velocity which tied him for third-best amongst all participants. Uses his long frame well in his swing after starting from an upright, open stance with high hands. Not much movement other than a slight foot drift into the ball. Hands are explosive and when his barrel was on time we got a sneak peek of the power that will come as his last ball smashed off the wall. Defensively he has the tools to stick at short in the long term and should see his fair amount of time there this spring. The arm is, as you would imagine, big and accurate. Was 84 mph across the diamond.
