Burdick played pretty much every sport available in high school, but what his teammates will most likely remember is how quickly he bounced back from being hit in the head by a comebacker that struck him while he was pitching. At the time, he told the Cincinnati Enquirer that he couldn’t see out of one of his eyes for two days. Now focusing on hitting, Burdick and third baseman Seth Gray have given Wright State a very impressive duo to drive their lineup in 2019. This pairing likely wouldn’t have happened if not for Burdick’s elbow injury that forced him to have Tommy John surgery and redshirt in 2017 after an impressive freshman season. Burdick has 70-grade raw power and he’s shown solid productive power in games. He stands 6-foot with a thick, powerful build and uses his average speed well, as he’s aggressive and successful in swiping bases. He fits in either corner outfield spot with average defense and an average arm. Burdick needs to do a better job recognizing breaking balls, but he’s shown a more discerning eye this spring and scouts like his swing. Burdick has excellent strength, but his pro future depends on how much he can continue to improve his hitting ability. He is a little old for the 2019 class because of his redshirt year.
