  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Takes loss in extra frame

    Burke (3-1) allowed an unearned run on one walk while striking one over 1.1 innings to pick up his first loss of the season Sunday against Seattle in an extra inning.

    Burke first cleaned up the mess made by Matt Bush in the ninth inning to preserve a tie game, but he fell victim to the ghost runner scoring on his own wild pitch in the extra frame. Burke has been very good out of the Rangers' bullpen and is deserving of high-leverage chances, but this one didn't work out. The left-hander sports a 0.96 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 32 strikeouts and nine walks over 28 innings.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Shines in relief again

    Burke allowed one hit and struck out one over two scoreless innings in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Angels.

    Burke made a sixth consecutive scoreless appearance, during which he's allowed seven hits and two walks while striking out nine over 11.1 innings. Five of those outings and 10 of 13 overall have lasted more than three outs. The left-hander, a former starter, finally appears to be healthy after a 2019 shoulder injury put a hole in his career. Burke hinted that shoulder was better at the end of the 2021 in the minors, when he allowed two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out 14 over his final 13 innings at Triple-A Round Rock.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Needed on short notice

    Burke allowed one hit and one walk while striking out five over 2.2 innings of relief in Monday's 1-0 loss to the Yankees.

    Burke got the call after starter Jon Gray exited mid-fifth inning with soreness in his left knee. On short notice, Burke entered with one out and one runner on. He gave up a hit and a walk to the first two batters faced before fanning Aaron Judge and Anthony Rizzo with the bases juiced. The left-hander followed that by getting the next six hitters (retired eight straight overall) and departed with yet another sterling effort out of the bullpen. Burke, a starter in the minors, is thriving as a reliever. He's allowed four runs (three earned) on 14 hits and four walks while striking out 26 over 16.2 relief innings.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Takes home third win

    Burke (3-0) was credited with Tuesday's win, allowing three hits and striking out one over 2.1 scoreless innings in a 6-4 victory over Philadelphia.

    Burke followed starter Jon Gray, who was pulled after three innings and 60 pitches in his first start back off the injured list. A starter in the minor leagues, Burke is filling a long-relief role in the majors. Tuesday's effort was the sixth time in eight appearances he's logged at least six outs. The left-hander's struck out 21 compared to just three walks over 14 innings.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Throws two scoreless

    Burke allowed one hit and struck out two over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Astros.

    The Rangers' bats took a holiday Tuesday -- just three hits -- but manager Chris Woodward got strong work from the bullpen. This was the fourth time in six outings that Burke has thrown multiple innings, and the 25-year-old lefty is thriving. He's allowed two runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out 16 over 9.2 innings.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Racking up Ks

    Burke allowed one hit and struck out five over two scoreless relief innings in Thursday's 10-5 win over the Angels.

    Burke made his second appearance of the season, both coming in blowouts, but he's been effective. The left-hander, who was a starter before the Rangers shifted him to the bullpen in 2022, has allowed two hits, walked one and struck out 10 over four innings with a 0.00 ERA. It's a limited sample and pitching middle innings is not like working in high-leverage spots, but the Rangers are in need of someone to take hold of the closer role so Burke could move into a more prominent position in the bullpen if he keeps getting results.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Wins roster spot

    Burke will break camp on the major-league roster, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    Burke made six starts in his major-league debut back in 2019, struggling to a 7.42 ERA. He missed all of 2020 due to shoulder surgery and was stuck at Triple-A for all of 2021, where he struck out 28.9 percent of opposing batters but finished with a 5.68 ERA. He appears lined up for a bullpen role for now, but his past experience as a starter makes him an option for spot starts as needed.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Lands on 7-day IL

    Burke was placed on the 7-day minor-league injured list with a blister on his left hand Thursday, retroactive to Sept. 22, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Burke allowed no hits and a walk while striking out three in four scoreless innings during his last appearance at Triple-A Round Rock, but he apparently developed a blister that will force him to miss his next turn through the rotation. Whether he's cleared to return prior to the end of the regular season remains to be seen.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: On delayed timeline

    Burke (shoulder) is not expected to be ready to pitch by Opening Day, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    Burke endured a 12-month recovery timeline coming off shoulder surgery in February of 2020. As such, the left-hander is not expected to pitch off a mound until mid-March, putting his availability for the April 1 season-opener in doubt.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Placed on 45-day IL

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Facing 12-month recovery

    Burke underwent debridement surgery on the labrum in his left shoulder Friday and will be sidelined about 12 months.

    Burke was already ruled out for the 2020 campaign earlier this week when the surgery was announced, but he now has an official recovery timeline. The 23-year-old could potentially be ready for Opening Day next year, but there are certainly no guarantees given the expected length of the recovery.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Set for season-ending surgery

    Burke will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder Friday and will miss the entire 2020 season.

    Burke has been battling shoulder problems since early in the 2019 season. The issue persisted throughout the offseason, and while he was able to throw off flat ground early in camp, the Rangers weren't happy with how his shoulder was responding to treatment. He was diagnosed with fraying and a partial tear of his labrum and will sit out for all of 2020 as a result.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Throwing off flat ground

    Burke (shoulder) is out to 90 feet in his throwing program, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

    Burke is not yet throwing off a mound because of inflammation in his left shoulder. As such, he will be behind other starters. The left-hander is expected to start the season at Triple-A Nashville.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Still dealing with shoulder issues

    Burke will be behind to start spring training due to continued shoulder issues, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Burke's shoulder issues date to at least the first half of the 2019 season. The discomfort popped back up in December, eventually requiring an injection. The injection helped get rid of the pain, but he'll nevertheless be behind his teammates to start the year.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Won't require surgery

    Burke's shoulder discomfort is a continuation of the impingement he battled in the minors in the first half of the season, and he won't require surgery, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Burke will need some rehab but is expected to return prior to the start of the 2020 season. The pair of shoulder issues gives some reason to worry about the 23-year-old's value next season, however, and his 7.43 ERA and 11.7 percent strikeout rate over his first six big-league starts aren't particularly encouraging either.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Dealing with shoulder discomfort

    Burke was shut down due to left shoulder discomfort, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    It was already known Burke wouldn't pitch again this season, but the previous report indicated he wasn't being shut down due to a health issue. The shoulder discomfort is significantly more concerning, though the specifics of the injury remain unclear. The Rangers plan to utilize a bullpen game in his place Saturday versus the Yankees.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Done for season

    Burke is healthy but has been shut down for the season, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Burke will finish the season having made his big-league debut and starting six games. He wasn't very good in those starts, however, posting a 7.43 ERA while striking out just 11.7 percent of opposing batters. The Rangers will go with a bullpen game in what would be his next scheduled start Saturday against the Yankees.
