    View Draft Report
    A late bloomer like Harvey, Burton had sporadic success in his first two years at Western Carolina. He got attention by excelling in outings against ACC powers Clemson, Florida State and Georgia Tech. Burton generally throws 90-91 mph and dials it up to 93-94 when used out of the bullpen. He has a strong frame at 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds, and batters have a tough time picking up his pitches delivered from a low three-quarters angle. He also throws strikes and has an effective, slurvy breaking ball.
