Pirates' Nick Burdi: Ready to rise?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi could see his stock rise quickly after missing most of 2019 with a biceps injury, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

He was hitting triple digits with his fastball during Grapefruit League action, where he struck out eight batters in 4.1 innings. The 27-year-old might not hold much fantasy value currently, but that could change if he pitches similarly to the way he did during spring training.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Looks good on mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi struck out two batters in a scoreless fourth inning against Boston on Wednesday.

The righty's season ended in late April last year, when he suffered a nerve injury relating to thoracic outlet syndrome. Manager Derek Shelton remains cautious regarding his pitcher's health. "It's just making sure every time he goes out, he's feeling OK -- not only today, but he's definitely one of those guys we're checking in with tomorrow just to make sure he feels the way he should," Shelton noted. Burdi reached 100 mph with his fastball Wednesday.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Enters camp restriction-free
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (biceps) reported to spring training this week without any restrictions to his throwing program, Stephen J. Nesbitt of The Athletic reports.

Burdi will be a full participant to begin camp after he required season-ending surgery last June to relieve symptoms of neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome. Prior to getting shut down, Burdi had been lit up for nine runs over 8.2 innings, though he picked up 17 strikeouts on the back of his upper-90s fastball. Assuming Burdi can quickly regain his pre-surgery velocity in camp, he could emerge as a dominant setup man in front of newly minted closer Keone Kela.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Set to ramp up activity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Burdi (biceps) is on track to ramp up his activity within the next 10 days to two weeks, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Initially placed on the injured list in April with a strained biceps, Burdi had resumed a throwing program in June before he was shut down again after developing symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome, for which he required season-ending surgery. The procedure has apparently done its part to alleviate those symptoms over the past two months, so he'll now prepare to take the first meaningful step forward in the rehab process. The Pirates may not have a strong feel for Burdi's availability for the start of the 2020 season until reassessing his condition in spring training.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Out for season after surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (biceps) underwent surgery to relieve symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome Tuesday and will miss the rest of the 2019 season.

Burdi was already on the 60-day injured list due to a right biceps strain and resumed throwing earlier in June, but he'll now miss the remainder of the season after the surgery. The 26-year-old is expected to be fully cleared for baseball activities by spring training.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (biceps) played catch Wednesday, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Burdi has been shut down from throwing since suffering a strained biceps tendon back in mid-April, so this is a step in the right direction for the right-hander. That said, it remains to be seen when he'll be cleared to resume mound work, leaving him without a return date.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Still not throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (biceps) has yet to resume throwing, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Burdi has been shut down from throwing since suffering a strained biceps tendon back in mid-April. Until he picks up a throwing program, the right-hander will remain without a timetable for his return.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Moves to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (biceps) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Burdi will make way on the 40-man roster for the newly acquired Chris Stratton. The move doesn't appear to have any effect on Burdi's return timeline, as he's been shut down from throwing for four weeks due to a nerve injury.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Dealing with nerve injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (biceps) is dealing with a nerve injury and won't throw for four weeks, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Burdi was initially diagnosed with a strained right biceps and flexor mass, but a third opinion revealed the nerve damage. The right-hander will still have to build back up once he's cleared to resume throwing in approximately four weeks, so he likely won't be ready to return until sometime in the summer.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Set for third opinion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A second opinion on Burdi's strained right biceps tendon and flexor mass confirmed that he has no structural damage, but he's set to receive a third opinion soon, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Burdi continues to receive fairly good news, and it appears that he'll be able to avoid surgery. Further details on his recovery timetable should become clear after he receives yet another opinion.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Getting second opinion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi will get a second opinion on his strained right biceps tendon and flexor mass early next week, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Early reports suggested that Burdi may be available to avoid surgery. His timeline remains unclear.

April 23, 2019 03:28 PM
Pirates' Nick Burdi: Moved to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (biceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

Burdi was diagnosed with a strained biceps tendon and flexor mass earlier in the day by team physicians, but he could avoid surgery, which would mean a faster recovery time for the reliever. He'll require more than the 10-day minimum while on the injured list and has been ruled out indefinitely. The Pirates have recalled Steven Brault from Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding move.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Initial tests encouraging
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi has a strained biceps tendon and flexor mass but may be able to avoid surgery, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Burdi appeared to suffer a serious injury Monday against the Diamondbacks, going down in obvious pain after throwing a pitch. An MRI revealed no full tear or fracture, so he appears to have avoided the worst-case scenario. He's out indefinitely, and the Pirates would be wise to treat him with caution, as Burdi has thrown just 21 innings since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2017.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Dealing with right elbow pain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh has announced that Burdi left Monday's game against Arizona due to right elbow and biceps pain, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

This isn't a great initial sign for Burdi, who has logged just 21 total innings since undergoing Tommy John surgery in June of 2017. He'll have to undergo further testing before the full extent of his injury is uncovered.

April 22, 2019 10:28 PM
Pirates' Nick Burdi: Departs with arm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi left Monday's game against the Diamondbacks due to an apparent arm injury, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Burdi went down in a heap immediately after throwing a pitch, and he was holding his right biceps in obvious pain. Although this looked to be a significant injury for Burdi, who underwent Tommy John surgery in 2017, the severity of the issue is not yet known.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Available out of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi is available out of the bullpen Wednesday against the Tigers, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Burdi was unavailable Tuesday due to rest purposes, but he should assume his normal role out of the bullpen for Wednesday's series finale. Through eight appearances this season, the right-hander owns a 4.05 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 13:1 K:BB in 6.2 innings.

April 16, 2019 06:04 PM
Pirates' Nick Burdi: Unavailable due to rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi will be held out of Tuesday's game against Detroit for rest purposes, Nubyjas Wilborn of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Burdi has pitched in three of his team's last five matchups, per Wilborn, so the Pirates have elected to give the reliever a rest Tuesday evening. Felipe Vazquez will also be unavailable, for the same reason.

Pirates' Nick Burdi: Shuts down Nats Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi hurled a scoreless seventh inning Sunday, allowing one hit while striking out one batter against the Nationals.

The Rule 5 pick is becoming more important to the team's bullpen by the day. He's compiled five consecutive scoreless outings after giving up three runs in his first three appearances. Burdi holds an impressive 13:1 K:BB in 6.2 innings and could move into a higher-leverage situation due to Keone Kela and Richard Rodriguez's inconsistencies.

March 29, 2019 05:52 PM
Pirates' Nick Burdi: Mows down Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi struck out three batters in a scoreless ninth inning Thursday against Cincinnati.

The Rule 5 pickup mixed a high-90s fastball with a sharp-breaking slider, setting the Reds down in order. Burdi took one of the team's last bullpen spots out of spring training, but he could find himself pitching in more meaningful situations with continued success. For the time being, Burdi will simply try to establish himself in the majors after totaling only three big-league appearances.

March 21, 2019 03:32 PM
Pirates' Nick Burdi: Making good impression
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi threw a perfect inning against the Twins on Wednesday.

The Rule 5 pickup, who spent one month on Pittsburgh's roster last season, will need to stay with the team an additional two months or be offered back to Minnesota. "He's come in in a good spot. He's been competing. He's been making pitches," manager Clint Hurdle said. "The velocity's playing. The slider's come into play a little bit. He continues to give you things to think about." Burdi has posted a 1.93 ERA in 9.2 spring innings, including a 13:3 K:BB. As a result, there's a good chance he takes the last bullpen spot and pitches in middle relief to start 2019.
