6.3.16:  Burke has an athletic frame and hits from the left side. He has above average batspeed and a pull approach with gap power to his pull side. In the outfield, he takes good routes and has a decent arm. On the mound, he throws from an over-the top slot with a drop and drive delivery. Short arm action that is quick with some effort. Shoulders are on line and uphill, landing is square with some fall off. Fastball had a lot of plane, sitting 84-85, touching as high as 87. Curveball with true 12/6 power break, running 71-76. 
2.22.15 Hit from a tall/athletic stance that was open.  Load was smooth and stride was short with a slight leg kick.  Rhythm was stiff.  Lower half was explosive with quick hands.  Exit Velocity was 78 mph.  Showed a pull approach.  Swing path was short and worked uphill at times.  Explosive swing should allow him to be a consistent line drive hitter with pull power.  In the field, he threw from a high ¾ arm slot that was stiff.  Throws were accurate and had some carry.  Positional Velocity of 77 mph.  Footwork was slow and got caught on heels at times.  Hands were decent with clean exchanges.
11/9/2014:  Burke stands 6-foot-2 and has an athletic frame. He throws over the top with a quick, max effort arm action that is long and somewhat rigid. He strides down the mound on line but lands a bit closed with his feet, causing him to fall off a bit on his finish. Burke’s fastball ran 81-83, touching a few 84s, with some slight running action to it. He commanded the pitch well but spent most of the outing at the top of the zone. Burke also threw a sharp, 12/6 curveball that he kept down in zone that ran 68-70. He also got swings and misses on his change-up, which he threw with full armspeed and sinking action and ran 74-75. Offensively, starts from a tall stance with narrow feet.  During batting practice, he showed a slight hitch but was still able to still generate bat speed with some raw power.  Burke had the tendency to land closed, cutting off the use of his backside to get through the baseball.  In the field, he showed outstanding arm strength (87MPH) from almost straight over the top and was able to move through the ball well, gaining ground on his throws.  At times, he took false steps in his outfield routes but compensated with his athleticism.
7/31/14 - 6-foot-2, 180 pound, left-handed hitting SS/3B that stood in a balanced/athletic stance at the plate.  Showed a minor hitch which gave him separation.  From that position, Burke was able to take a short, direct path to the ball, with a slightly closed stride, but was still able to clear his hips with some power.  In the field, Burke projects as an above average corner infielder.  He moves well laterally and posses above average arm strength.
