Shortstop Andy Burns transferred from the Wildcats of Kentucky to the Wildcats of Arizona after last season, so he had to sit out this season. He was one of the top high school prospects in Colorado in 2008, but he fell to the Rockies in the 25th round because of his strong commitment to Kentucky. Burns has been working out for teams this spring and has expressed interest in signing. He'll get a chance to remain at shortstop as a pro, though he may eventually move to third base. He's an above-average runner and has the footwork to remain in the middle of the diamond. He has smooth actions, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound frame and well above-average arm strength. There are more questions about his bat than his defense, and he batted .279 in his two seasons at Kentucky. He will likely play in the Cape Cod League this summer to try and boost his stock.
