Burns possesses one of the highest ceilings on the mound in the entire Midwest. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound former PBR Future Games participant got the nod for Hitters 2023 squad on Saturday morning at our PBR at The Rock Fall Championships, when it was roughly 45 degrees outside, and continued to showcase an impressive, high upside arsenal. Burns ripped off a 91 mph fastball in the first inning, sitting anywhere from 86-90 mph with his heater as his outing went on. He showed an improved feel to spin his breaking ball for strikes as well, landing it in the zone to get ahead in counts and even when he was behind a handful of times, too. Burns appears to just be scratching the surface of what he could be, especially as he continues to fill out his frame and physically mature.


During the first day of our PBR at The Rock 16u Championships, Burns struck out 11 over six innings pitched, leading CBT to a 6-2 win over Elite Baseball Training. Burns is a 6-foot-3, 180-pound right-hander who sat 83-87, touching 88 mph with a curveball that flashed depth at 69-72 mph. Burns also helped his own cause going 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI


One of the top-ranked uncommitted arms in the state, Burns boasts a projectable, high-waisted 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame that projects to fill out as he continues to physically mature. He attacked hitters with an 83-85 mph fastball that bumped up into the 86 mph range a handful of times, playing with natural arm-side action and occasional vertical carry. Burns also flipped in several low-70s breaking balls that occasionally showed tight-spinning action off an 11/5 plane and feel to land it for strikes. He finished with seven strikeouts and just one earned run across four innings of work.
