With the White Sox seeing their top pick recover well from a concussion, the team’s second pick in the draft Zack Burdi is continuing to impress with Double A Birmingham Barons. In his last two appearances for the Barons, Burdi has pitched 3.1 scoreless innings. The 26th overall pick of the 2016 draft has lowered his ERA to 4.09 after another scoreless outing on Sunday.
Against the Jackson Generals on Sunday, Burdi pitched a scoreless inning for the Barons. Although Burdi has pitched well as of late for the Barons,but don’t expect the first round pick to be jettisoned to the White Sox next month. Burdi would be better served competing for a roster spot next spring, then he would pitching in meaningless games for the White Sox in September.
Keeping up with the top portion of this year’s draft for the White Sox, second round pick Alec Hansen has continued to impress for Great Falls Voyagers of the Pioneer League. In his last start on August 6 against Idaho Falls, Hansen pitched six scoreless innings and recorded 11 strikeouts. Hansen’s current ERA is 1.49, and he has 43 strikeouts in seven starts for the Voyagers this season.
