Michael Burgess is a 2007 OF/P with a 5'11'', 190 lb. frame from Tampa FL, who attends Hillsborough HS. He's looking strong and in very good shape and ready for a big spring. Burgess put his very underrated defensive skills on display during drills, showing advanced fundamentals, a quick release and a plus big league arm with accuracy. Taking the extra base when Burgess is in right field will not be an option. We've always been impressed by how well Burgess does the small things like running the bases and taking good routes in the outfield. At the plate, Burgess showed the excellent raw bat speed and power he is known for. He has trouble occasionally in BP and against slower pitching staying back on the ball and reigning in his quickness and aggressiveness, but when it comes together the ball just explodes off his bat.

Michael Burgess is a 2007 left hand hitting outfielder/left hand pitcher from Hillsborough HS, residing in Tampa, FL. Burgess has a strong, compact, powerful, stocky build on his 5'11" 190 lb. frame. With that body type, it is interesting to note that he has pretty long arms, which help him generate some of the most outstanding and eye catching raw power in the nation. Few players generate the type of buzz that Burgess does. He has plus raw power and also will show a fastball that is up there with the best in the nation. He was ranked #2 among PG National Top 100 position players. Burgess loves to swing the bat and does so quite aggressively. His has plus bat speed and generates tremedous power, particularly on the pull side. His hands are good and though his swing is big and can appear out of control at times, it really isn't. Burgess can overpower a ball but he stays pretty disciplined and is the rare young player that shows massive power in BP and then shows it in games too. From the moment he steps in the box you know that Burgess is a dangerous hitter and all eyes are on him, knowing that he could do something spectacular. In the outfield he has a plus arm, with the ball carrying so easily. There really isn't much effort for him to generate that arm speed and strength. Burgess can also run a bit. His defensive tools profile well for right field, possibly even in centerfield. Though he is not the biggest fan of pitching, Burgess does get on the hill. He pitches from a high 3/4 slot and has a simple delivery. His fastball touches up to 94 and can come pouring down hill from his long arm stroke. Burgess ran 4.25 home/1st, with a 6.94 laser timed 60. He is one of the most tooled players in the '07 high school class and should not have to wait long on draft day to hear his name called.
