"When I scouted Burns this spring, he made things happen. He showed a very good knowledge of the strike zone and excellent patience at the plate. Burns had simple, uncomplicated mechanics. I did not see any semblance of power. That's not his game. Burns' career will be based upon getting on, getting over and getting in. Burns is exciting to watch." - Major League Scout Bernie Pleskoff (MLB.com, 04/08/2014, 'Blazing speed the calling card for A's prospect Burns', Source )

Billy Burns is fast. No. Billy Burns is stupid fast. The number nine prospect in the A's top prospect stole seventy-four bases in the minors in 2013, got caught stealing only seven times, and his scout wrote the following ( link ):

Blazing speed the calling card for A's prospect Burns

Historically, an average Major League position player generally runs from home to first base in 4.3 seconds from the right-handed batter's box and 4.2 seconds from the left-handed box.

Recently, with the increase in size of big league players, I think that average may have increased a tick from both sides.

Every time I saw Oakland A's outfield prospect Billy Burns in Spring Training this year, he consistently ran from home to first in less than four seconds. Every time. Sometimes it was 3.82, others 3.9. But it was fast. Plenty fast.

And Burns didn't stay at first base very long. He stole 10 bases, while being caught only three times. A single or a walk became a double.

The man is fast -- very fast. Burns has the instincts required to steal bases. He knows what he's doing, and he'll only get better.

You can follow the team links in the chart above to locate common statistics (singles), advanced statistics (WHIP Ratio & Isolated Power), and unique statistics (plate appearances & times on bases) not found on any other website.
