Starting game one today for the Canes National squad was touted righthander Chase Burns (2021, Gallatin, Tenn.) who has a big arm and a quality assortment of ways to get opposing hitters out. He’s a power armed righthander with a big fastball and a large, durable frame to project as a starter moving forward at 6-4, 215 pounds. The delivery is fairly simple and he does a good job repeating it nicely. The arm works and the athleticism shows as Burns is able to get downhill effectively with the fastball, a pitch that has been flirting with triple digits in shorter stints but worked 90-95 mph in this one, averaging out around 92 mph. The Tennessee commit went four shutout innings on the hill, whiffing hitters on the fastball six times; both offspeed pitches flashed above average at times, with the curveball coming in around 76-79 mph with depth and good shape while the slider has more darting action and is firmer at 83-85, though it was used more sparingly than the slider. All-in-all it was a quality performance from Burns as he showed that he can settle into a groove starting a game and still have pretty impressive stuff overall.
