PHILS CUT LOOSE MINOR LEAGUE FLOP BEAU BURROWS

By Mike Grimm

The Phillies released Beau Burrows from his minor league deal after signing the former first-round pick at the end of spring training.

Burrows was selected by the Tigers with the 22nd pick of the 2015 draft. The Texas native was a top 100 caliber prospect early in his professional career. His results began to level off once he hit the Triple-A level. Burrows pitched in the majors for the Tigers and Twins between 2020-21, allowing eight runs in 8 1/3 innings covering six relief appearances.

Since then, Burrows has bounced around the upper levels of the minor leagues. He spent 2022 with the Dodgers and worked in the Braves’ system a year ago.

Burrows split his time with the Phils between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley, allowing 6.45 earned runs per nine through 22 1/3 frames.

He walked more than 20% of opposing hitters and has a 6.10 ERA in 317 1/3 career innings at the Triple-A level.
