Deep league owners need Billy Burns
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(7/29/14) On Monday night, Billy Burns made his major league debut, pinch-hitting for Josh Reddick and lining out. It's wasn't an auspicious beginning for the Athletics' callup, but there should be better times ahead.
Though he had not advanced beyond Double-A, Burns had already demonstrated Fantasy potential with his blazing speed. Burns stole 51 bases in 56 attempts for Double-A Midland after notching 74 steals across two levels in the Nationals' system in 2013. He has very little power, but Burns has shown good plate discipline and has some potential to help owners with batting average and on-base percentage.
Even as just a pinch-running specialist, Burns would have value for owners in AL-only leagues, but he will be more than that. According to MLB.com, Burns will fill the role vacated by Craig Gentry, who went on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right hand. That means he will platoon in center field against left-handed pitchers. That additional playing time gives Burns some appeal in deeper mixed leagues.
