The Padres released Burdi (elbow) on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Burdi opened the season on Triple-A El Paso's 7-day injured list before being activated April 19 and then optioned two days later without making a single appearance for the affiliate. The 29-year-old right-hander is apparently healthy again after undergoing his second Tommy John surgery in October 2020, but the Padres may not have been encouraged enough by his throwing sessions to justify keeping him around on the Triple-A roster.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2016
2015
Stop me if you've heard this one before: Burdi showed promise in 2019 but ultimately spent most of the year injured. The righty lasted just 8.2 innings this time around before suffering a strained biceps tendon in late April. Shortly after resuming throwing in mid-June, he was shut down again, this time due to thoracic outlet syndrome, a problem which required surgery. His very small sample produced a comically misaligned ERA (9.35) and FIP (1.83). It's hard to take too much from less than a full game's worth of work, though his 42.5% strikeout rate was certainly encouraging. There's reason to believe Burdi could be a late-inning weapon if healthy this season, but there's unfortunately very little reason to believe he'll be healthy for an extended period. He's thrown a total of just 41 innings across all levels over the last four seasons and there's no sign of the trend changing any time soon.
Burdi made a strong impression in his professional debut in 2014 as he rose from rookie ball to Double-A in dominating fashion. He looked set to perhaps reach the majors in 2015, but surprisingly struggled at Double-A with a 5.63 ERA and 33:22 K:BB ratio in 30.1 innings. Back at High-A, he found his form and had a 2.25 ERA with a 13.1 K/9. He then finished the season with a 1.27 ERA and 16:10 K:BB in 14.1 innings back at Double-A. Despite the outstanding strikeout rates, wildness is a concern as he had a 6.6 BB/9 at Double-A. Burdi hits 100 mph on the radar gun and could be the high-velocity arm the Twins desperately need in the bullpen. However, he'll need to be more consistent and reduce his free passes to get a shot at the majors in 2016.
Burdi was on the radar to be drafted in 2011, but he slipped to the 24th round after struggling with inconsistency during his senior year of high school. At Louisville, he developed into an excellent power arm, showing a plus-plus fastball that touches 100 mph and regularly sits in the high-90s. He keeps hitters off balance with a plus slider than can reach the low-90s make him a potential closer down the road. Burdi made a strong impression in his professional debut with the Twins last summer. After dominating Low-A Cedar Rapids with a 4.15 ERA and 26:8 K:BB ratio in 13 innings, he then struck out 12 batters in 7.1 scoreless innings at Double-A New Britain. He's likely on the fast track to the big leagues, and might be in the Minnesota bullpen by summer.
