Drafted in the 24th round (728th overall) by the New York Yankees in 2016 (signed for $100,000)
The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Burton is a physical specimen, with thick extremities and muscles popping out of his uniform. He stuck out with an explosive batting practice session at the indoor Maplezone Invitational in January, then followed it up with an exceptional season as a freshman at Harford CC. Burton hit .407/.514/.749 with 16 home runs and 23 steals in 23 attempts. Burton has above-average bat speed and power, though his approach is still coming along. He runs better than most big men, and posts average run times on occasion. Burton's defense in the outfield is crude still, and he has a below-average arm, so he may end up at first base in the long term.
