Lean, athletic build at 6-foot-0 160 pounds. At the plate Burch had some grind-it-out type at-bats, fighting off tough pitches and working deep counts. Slightly spread stance; repeats his timing and displayed a short swing path with occasional lift. High contact approach who will hit for average and develop additional pop. Above average movements at 1B around the bag; active feet, glove works out in front with a short arm stroke to start the front end of the double plays. Could project as well as corner outfield with improve foot speed. The LHP had a tough outing on the mound but showed an above average breaking ball with some later action as he worked in the low 80's with his FB.

Athletic 1B/LHP with a long arm swing with some stabbing action. Was 81-83 MPH with a low 60's sweeping CB. Had an extended inning that would have been cut short without defensive miscues and a couple close pitches at the plate. Breaking ball early in inning had above average spin and has the makings of an out pitch.

Mostly even setup in the box from the left side, very direct to the ball, quiet hands, shows some power to his pull-side gap, loose and fluid swing pace, 80 mph exit velo.  1B active lower half, fields away from his body, moves well laterally, short quick arm-action, strong arm at 77 mph. Pitching – long lean build, smooth pace to his delivery, low effort, releases FB from a high ¾ slot, fastball peaked 83 mph, sat 78-79, CB 65-66 with tight shape. 2021 to keep a close eye on.
