Chase Burns - Prospect Profile

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - March 18th: "Burns has averaged 98 mph on his fastball so far, which is two ticks better than his 2023 average. He backs the 70-grade fastball with a double-plus slider and solid curveball and changeup."

Joe Doyle - Future Star Series - March 18th: "Burns offers an upper 90s fastball that’s touched 101 and figures to continue tickling triple digits as he matures. It features plus carry and Wake Forest helped develop natural cut to the pitch eliminating what arm-side tail he used to feature."

MLB.com - March 8th: "Burns is somewhat of an enigma for scouts, as is his fastball. He operates at 95-97 mph and reaches 102 with his heater, but it's fairly straight and batters get a good look at it coming out of his high arm slot, so it gets hit harder than it should. His tight slider is a true beast that sits in the upper-80s and generated a 61 percent swing-and-miss rate in 2023. "

Keith Law - The Athletic - March 7th: "He’s been better than ever this year, sitting 97-99 mph, touching 101, with a wipeout slider, getting some good carry on the fastball up in the zone but also showing he can drive it down by staying on top through his delivery. He doesn’t have much of a pitch to attack lefties, but they’re also not hitting him yet, so that may be something for his future employers to figure out."

Kiley McDaniel - ESPN - February 23rd: "Burns transferred to Wake Forest to join its famous pitching development machine and may have turned the corner now, with buzz all fall and preseason that his stuff is as good as ever and his command may be sharp enough to stamp him as a starter. Last week, he worked at 95-100 mph with bat-missing shape and a 70-grade slider while walking only one over six innings in his Wake Forest debut."

Aram Leighton - Just Baseball - February 15th: "A great athlete on the mound at a study 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, Burns already appears to be washing away much of the perceived reliever risk that scouts had labeled him with. If Burns maintains the stuff we saw this fall, he will almost surely be the first arm off of the board and a top five pick."
