CF,LF,RF - MIA - MiLB
Burdick hit his first home run of the season, driving in one run and scoring another, but it wasn't enough as the Marlins fell to the Reds 7-4 on Friday.
Burdick's season-long numbers remain modest, with a .250 batting average and one home run and one RBI through 12 at-bats. Fantasy managers can leave the 26-year-old on the waiver wire.
Miami Marlins outfielder Peyton Burdick underwent an MRI on his right big toe after getting treatment over the last few days.
Interestingly, Burdick doesn't know how or when he sustained the big toe sprain but the club wanted to get an image to determine how to treat the injury. The 26-year-old made his MLB debut last season, hitting .207 with four homers and a stolen base alongside a .664 OPS across 32 games. He's shown solid power and speed in the minors but also has a history of elevated strikeout numbers as he competes for a fourth outfielder role with the Marlins in camp this spring.
Peyton Burdick went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Cubs.
Burdick made his MLB debut Friday, picked up his first Saturday, then cracked his first big-league home run Sunday. The Marlins No. 10 prospect (MLB.com) is now 2-for-9 so far over his first three games at the show.
