Burhenn was a Big Ten All-Freshman Team member in 2019 after he posted a 3.96 ERA in 15 starts and 91 innings, but he got hit around a bit in the shortened 2020 season and his ERA ballooned to 8.02 despite an excellent 7.25 strikeout-to-walk rate. This spring was much better for Burhenn. He posted a 3.81 ERA over 80.1 innings of work and 13 starts, with 91 strikeouts (10.2 K/9) and 27 walks (3.0 BB/9). Burhenn has a four-pitch mix with a fastball that sits in the 90-93 mph range and touched 97 this spring, in addition to a slider, curveball and changeup. He’s gotten a good amount of swing and miss with each of his secondaries, but scouts see his entire arsenal as average or fringe-average across the board. His slider has sweeping action in the low 80s, while his curveball is more of a 12-to-6 bender in the mid 70s. Burhenn throws his changeup in the low 80s and it has some arm-side running action. Burhenn doesn’t have the most fluid arm action, with some stiffness in his operation and hooking action in the back of his arm stroke, but he’s been a solid strike thrower in his collegiate career.
