Tanner Burns - Prospect Profile

MLB.com - May : "When he's 100 percent, Burns can work at 92-97 mph with his fastball and locate it to both sides of the plate. His breaking ball can be a plus pitch at times, combining slider velocity in the low 80s with curveball depth, but it gets slurvy at others."

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - May 13th: "Burns throws an above-average curveball and a changeup that gets some above-average grades as well, though it fluctuates more around average than the curve or fastball. He also throws a slider, though some evaluators believe the two breaking balls blend together."

Kiley McDaniel - ESPN - May 13th: "Burns has the best fastball command in the draft and, along with Detmers, might move the quickest through the low minors."

Ian Smith - Prospect 365 - Apr. 26th: "Burns brings three pitches that grade at least 55 (fastball, curveball, changeup), and he throws them with solid command. His stuff plays up due to his aggressive mentality on the mound."

Dan Zielinki - Baseball Prospect Journal - Mar. 22nd: "He throws a mid-90s fastball. He might not have the upside as some of the other college pitchers but profiles as an effective major-league starter."

Jeff Ellis - 247 Sports - Feb. 14th: "The concerns with him are two-fold--height and injuries. He stands six feet tall and has had a few nagging injuries, though nothing major. His stuff is good, but not great, but it plays up because he spots it so well. If Burns was 6' 5" and had no injury issues, he would be talked about as a top ten pick."

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - Jan. 31st : "Burns has been a workhorse in two years with Auburn, taking 32 starts and throwing 165.7 innings while posting a 2.89 ERA over that period. While hes short for a typical innings-eater profile, Burns has a strong, mature frame and has been as reliable as anyone in the college game."
