by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burke (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to the Rangers' alternate training site Saturday.

Burke began the season on the injured list while he recovered from shoulder surgery that he underwent in February of 2020. While the left-hander is now healthy, he'll work at the team's alternate training site going forward.

Rangers' Brock Burke: On delayed timeline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rangers' Brock Burke: Facing 12-month recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Brock Burke: Can't escape first inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burke (0-2) allowed seven runs on five hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss versus the Athletics on Saturday.

After allowing only three runs over his first 18 innings this year, Burke has fallen apart, with 19 runs allowed in his last 8.2 innings. The 23-year-old owns a 7.43 ERA and 1.54 WHIP overall. Burke's final start of the season would likely come against a dangerous Yankees lineup next Saturday, should he be given another turn by manager Chris Woodward.

Rangers' Brock Burke: Ambushed by A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burke didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 14-9 loss to the A's, surrendering six runs on six hits and a walk over three innings while striking out two.

For the second consecutive start, Burke got tagged for three homers and six runs after not allowing a long ball through his first 18 big-league innings. The rookie southpaw will take a 5.19 ERA and 14:9 K:BB through 26 frames into his next outing Sept. 20, on the road in a rematch with Oakland.

Rangers' Brock Burke: Yields six runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burke allowed six runs on six hits with two walks and one strikeout across five innings during a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday.

The left-hander was dealing with a virus this week and only threw 75 pitches, but it's unclear if that's because of the illness or ineffectiveness. Burke tossed up three homers in just five frames and was fortunate to escape with a no-decision. Three strong starts to begin his career, though, still has his ERA at a healthy 3.52 mark. He is also 0-1 with a 1.17 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 23 innings across four outings. Burke will face the Rays at home in his next start Thursday.

Rangers' Brock Burke: Dealing with virus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rangers manager Chris Woodward is considering limiting Burke's pitch count in his next scheduled start Friday against Baltimore due to a three-day bout with a stomach virus, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Burke, who began his major-league career with three straight starts of six innings and no more than two runs allowed, said he's lost six or seven pounds while coping with the virus. He was able to throw a bullpen Wednesday. "He feels better today, but not great.... If we pitch him and he's iffy, weak, then we'll limit the number of pitches or number of innings he throws," Woodward told T.R. Sullivan of

Rangers' Brock Burke: Another strong outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burke had a no-decision Saturday, allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two over six innings in a 3-2 win over the Mariners.

Burke turned in another quality start, his third in three tries since joining the Rangers. He becomes the first Texas pitcher to work six-plus innings while holding opponents to two runs or fewer in his first three starts. The left-hander with a 1.50 ERA will look for his first win Friday in Baltimore.

Rangers' Brock Burke: Delivers quality start in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burke (0-1) gave up one run on two hits and three walks while striking out five through six innings to take the loss against the White Sox on Sunday.

Burke allowed his first run in the big leagues, but he delivered his second quality start in only his second outing. Unfortunately for the 23-year-old, the Rangers only managed to produce one hit against the White Sox. Burke has a 0.75 ERA and a 9:5 K:BB through his first two starts. Burke will make his next start Saturday against the Mariners at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Rangers' Brock Burke: Will remain in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burke will make his next start Sunday on the road against the White Sox, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Texas manager Chris Woodward confirmed that Burke will stay in the rotation after the rookie left-hander fired six scoreless innings in his debut Tuesday. Burke managed just five swinging strikes among his 99 pitches (29 foul balls), but Woodward feels he'll get better as Burke learns to elevate the fastball, rather than keeping it down in the zone.

Rangers' Brock Burke: Has memorable debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burke allowed four hits and two walks while striking out four over six scoreless inning in a no-decision Tuesday against the Angels.

Burke was called up from Triple-A Nashville to make his debut in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader. The rookie left-hander had one tense moment in the sixth inning when he faced Albert Pujols with two men on and two out, but Burke retired him on a flyball to maintain the status quo. Burke is expected to remain in the rotation and is next expected to start Sunday on the road against the White Sox.

Rangers' Brock Burke: Officially recalled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burke was recalled from Triple-A Nashville prior to Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Angels.

As expected, Burke will be promoted to the majors to start the nightcap. He's set to make his major-league debut after posting a 7.88 ERA and 2.25 WHIP with 11 punchouts over eight innings at Triple-A.
