Brock Burke will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder to repair fraying and a partial tear of his labrum on Friday. He is expected to missed the entire 2020 season.— John Blake (@RangerBlake) February 24, 2020
Ranked as the Rangers’ No. 7 prospect by MLB.com, Burke likely wasn’t going to break camp with Texas this spring.
Even then, it’s a major set back for the 23-year-old lefty and former third-round pick. Burke made his debut with the Rangers last August, pitching to a 7.43 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in six starts.
