Prospect of the Day:  RHP Hiram Burgos

Hiram Burgos has not allowed more than two runs in a game since May 26. That marks eight-consecutive starts over a month and a half, and his combined ERA is 0.71 over that time frame. Flat-out solid pitching from the 24-year-old right-hander.

Milwaukee drafted Burgos out of Bethune-Cookman University in the sixth round of the 2009 Draft. He posted fantastic peripherals throughout his first two professional seasons — which led me to project him as a potential breakout prospect — but he really struggled in 2011 with a 4.89 ERA and fell off the prospect map. Of course, a year later and his peripherals have returned to normal, and he has dominated hitters in both the Florida State League and the Southern League.

Burgos sits 88-91 MPH with his fastball. Most of his success, however, comes by mixing his speeds and pounding the strike zone. Reports suggest his slider has been particularly effective this season. Ultimately, he has four or five pitches with which he can throw for strikes in any count. Some fans have wanted to compare Burgos to Carlos Villanueva due to the underwhelming fastball and the plethora of offspeed offerings. I’m not a fan of the comparison, though. Villanueva relies heavily on his changeup and curveball. Burgos, however, will still feature his fastball and work off that pitch. Different pitchers.

Despite the sparkling ERA, Hiram Burgos does not project to be anything more — at this point — than a back-end starter. Perhaps he can prove his underwhelming fastball can still be effective at the Triple-A and big league levels. Until then, though, do not go crazy believing Burgos is anything more than a Marco Estrada type of pitcher — a fifth starter or swingman in a solid rotation.

    Nothing more than a Marco Estrada caliber pitcher? Yes, please. Give me some of that.

    Your description of Burgos reminds me of Mike Fiers: Pounding the strike zone, a variety of pitches, reliance of changing speeds. That, too, is just fine with me.

    I mean, I would love it if he sat at 94 with his fastball. But guys like Estrada and Fiers are missing a lot of bats and giving he Brewers some consistent quality innings.

      couldn’t agree more… Fiers has been nothing but solid since he has been called up
