Drafted in the 9th round (258th overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2013 (signed for $170,000)
Burks pushed himself into the top 10 rounds with a terrific workout the week before the draft. He ran a 6.5-second 60-yard dash and held his own with a wood bat against quality fastballs from Trey Masek (Texas Tech) and David Gates (Howard, Texas, JC). A 5-foot-11, 180-pound righthanded hitter, Burks has some strength in his hands and barrels the ball, though he lacks bat speed and power. His below-average arm will necessitate a move from shortstop to center field in pro ball. He has committed to McLennan (Texas) CC.
