Jake Burger 2021 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Searched and didn't see a thread. Apologies if I missed one.

 

Getting called up to the White Sox. 

https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/baseball/news/white-soxs-jake-burger-likely-headed-to-chicago/

 

In 185 ABs in AAA has a slash of .322/.368/.596, an ISO of .275. Missed 2018-2019 due to injury and 2020 due to covid. Drafted at 11 overall by Chicago in 2017.

 

Worth an add in deep leagues/deeper dynasty IMO.

Snagged him for my dynasty team after he was drafted and held onto hope his injuries wouldn't keep him out of the bigs.  This is great news.  

Side note - I also have Seth Beer to go along with Jake Burger. Not a coincidence.

You can Fry🍳 some Bass with your 🍔, drink a 🍺 without too much Head on it, and finish up with some Dillon Tate-o chips and some 'Haase 'n' Diaz' ice cream 🍦

In Flint there used to be a record store called Rocka Rolla that had a drive thru window. One time I ordered a Fleetwood Mac, a Glenn Frey and an Iggy Pop - even though I really only wanted the Pop.

Notes from when he was drafted

Deemed an offense-first sort of player, Burger batted .328 with 13 doubles, 22 home runs, 65 RBIs, 69 runs scored, three stolen bases, 43 walks, a .443 on-base percentage and .648 slugging percentage in 63 games for No. 22 Missouri State this season. He finished second in NCAA Division I with 21 home runs in '16.

 

Then he ruptured his Achilles, twice, in 2018. Heal injury kept him out of 2019. Covid hit during 2020. I thought he was in the top 5 for total hits in aaa before he was promoted. His stay in the majors may be short once Moncada is healthy so this could be a preview for other teams as a trade chip. If he can keep the strike out rate reasonable AND stay healthy than maybe something like 260/330/470?
