Future Watch: Beau Burrows Baseball Rookie Cards, TigersFuture Watch: Beau Burrows Baseball Rookie Cards, Tigers – Beau Burrows was a first round selection in the 2015 MLB Draft as the 22nd overall pick by the Detroit Tigers. This 6′-2″, 200lb. right-hander who hails from Fort Worth, Texas, threw a very successful 28 innings in his first season of rookie ball. He struck out an amazing 33 batters and only gave up 18 hits and five earned runs. Its safe to say he’s one of the top prospects in the Tigers’ organization who could be on the fast track to the major leagues if he continues at this pace.

People who watch Weatherford High School know all about this top prospect. Apparently the Tigers had him ranked higher than most other teams on the board and he was “shocked” that he went in the first round. He has four pitches including a fast ball that pops.

Watch him deal some straight gas in this video:

According to his MLB.com draft profile:

The Tigers love big arms and this Texas high school standout definitely has that, with a plus fastball that sits consistently in the 94-95 mph range. He’s almost all power all the time, including his hard breaking curve, which is a plus pitch at times for him. Like with many high schoolers, he didn’t need a changeup much during his amateur days, but he’s shown some feel for it and it should be at least Major League average in time. His size — his 6-foot-2 listing has been described as generous — and his delivery have some feeling he could end up in a bullpen, but he has all the ingredients to succeed as a starter. ETA 2019.

Burrows’ first MLB licensed autographed baseball card debuted with the release of 2015 Bowman Draft Baseball, card number BCA-BB.

Some have this player ranked as the Tigers second best prospect. It wouldn’t surprise me if he becomes their top rookie at some point.
