2023 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Zack Burdi in 2023. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a one-year, minor-league contract with the Rays in January of 2023.
Gets opportunity with Tampa Bay
PTampa Bay Rays  NRI
January 18, 2023
Burdi agreed Wednesday with the Rays on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to MLB spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Once seen as a potential bullpen ace while he was a prospect in the White Sox system, Burdi has beset by numerous injuries in recent years and would do well just to resurface in the majors in a low-leverage role in 2023. The 27-year-old right-hander hasn't appeared in the big leagues since 2021 and wasn't especially effective over his 13 innings with two of the Nationals' lower-level minor-league affiliates last season, posting a 1.38 ERA but issuing 10 walks.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2019
Both Burdi brothers -- Zack and Nick -- can touch triple digits but both have dealt with the elbow trouble that tends to accompany that tremendously rare physical skill. Zack Burdi went down with Tommy John surgery in 2017 after blazing his way up to Triple-A, and has taken some time to fully recover his velocity. His command was never great pre-injury, but it certainly has been problematic since his return to the mound. He throws hard and has the potential to be an impact, late-inning reliever, but there is a chasm between his current abilities and that future. He struggled mightily in his debut and is probably not worth the roster spot in a reset league. Keeper and dynasty leaguers with deep benches can take a spec on him to see how much that chasm closes in 2021.
Tommy John surgery ended Burdi's 2017 campaign early and cost him most of 2018 as well, as he returned to throw just 6.1 rehab innings at the rookie-league level late in the year. In 77.2 total professional innings, the 2016 26th overall pick owns an excellent 32.8 K% and a poor 12.4 BB%. Some scouts put a legitimate 80 grade on Burdi's fastball, and he also features a pair of strong secondaries in his slider and changeup, but his command is poor. His fastball was sitting in the mid-90s in his rehab outings after previously sitting around 100 mph, and if that doesn't tick back up, Burdi may never reach his potential as an elite bullpen arm. If the velocity comes back after an offseason of rest, Burdi could become a weapon very quickly.
