Player Outlook
The right-hander's 2023 got off to an inauspicious start, with an ugly arbitration battle publicly straining the relationship between Corbin Burnes and the Brewers. Always the consummate professional, Burnes put together another highly successful campaign despite some hiccups, leading qualified National League starters in WHIP while reaching 200 strikeouts for the third consecutive season. His swing-and-miss dominance took a hit as Burnes averaged just over a strikeout per inning (25.5 K%), coinciding with a dip in fastball velocity. His sinking fastball let him down and the 10 wins were a disappointment, but Burnes has four above-average pitches to lean on and still projects as a fantasy ace after being traded to the Orioles in February. If the strikeouts tick back up, Burnes could find himself in the Cy Young discussion once again.

  • Orioles' Corbin Burnes: Rebounds for second win

    Burnes (2-0) earned the win Tuesday versus Boston, allowing one run on two hits and two walks over seven innings. He struck out six. After Tyler O'Neill belted a solo home run in the first inning, Burnes settled in and blanked the Red Sox over his subsequent six frames, allowing just one additional hit. Burnes' dominant outing comes as a relief after the right-hander was tagged for nine hits over 5.2 innings versus Kansas City in his last start. He lowered his ERA to a pristine 1.93 with a 0.75 WHIP and 20:2 K:BB through his first three starts (18.2 innings) with Baltimore. Burnes is currently in line for a two-start week -- he's tentatively scheduled to face the Brewers at home Sunday.

  • Orioles' Corbin Burnes: Ducks first Baltimore loss

    Burnes came away with a no-decision in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Royals, allowing two runs on nine hits over 5.2 innings. He struck out three without walking a batter. The right-hander fell just short of his second straight quality start to begin the season, getting pulled after exactly 100 pitches (67 strikes), but Burnes got outdueled by Cole Ragans and was in line for the loss until Baltimore rallied late. Burnes has a dazzling 14:0 K:BB through his first 11.2 innings with the O's, and he lines up to make his next start in Boston next week.

  • Orioles' Corbin Burnes: Victorious in O's debut

    Burnes (1-0) allowed one earned run on one hit and no walks while striking out 11 over six innings during Thursday's win over the Angels. Burnes served up a home run to Mike Trout in the first inning, which accounted for the only baserunner he allowed. All told, he racked up 12 swinging strikes across his 82 total pitches to cruise to his first victory with Baltimore, and he should continue building up his pitch count in subsequent starts. Burnes tentatively lines up for another favorable matchup in his second outing of the season against the Royals.

  • Orioles' Corbin Burnes: Confirmed for Opening Day

    Manager Brandon Hyde named Burnes the Orioles' starter for Opening Day against the Angels on March 28, Buster Olney of ESPN reports. It's not a major surprise the Orioles' new ace will be taking the mound Opening Day, especially with Kyle Bradish (elbow) beginning the season on the injured list. Burnes is making his third Grapefruit League start Sunday versus the Blue Jays and will look to get on track ahead of the regular season, as he's allowed three runs on four hits and a walk over 2.2 frames in his first two spring starts.

  • Orioles' Corbin Burnes: Struggling in spring

    Burnes has allowed three runs on four hits and a walk over 2.2 innings in Grapefruit League play. On the bright side, Burnes has struck out five batters. Spring struggles aren't really a concern for a veteran like Burnes, who projects to be the ace of a potentially very strong Baltimore rotation this season. Even in a down year in 2023, the right-hander posted a 3.39 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 200:66 K:BB over 193.2 innings with the Brewers.

  • Orioles' Corbin Burnes: Dealt to Orioles

    Burnes was traded from the Brewers to the Orioles in exchange for DL Hall, Joey Ortiz and the 34th pick in the 2024 MLB Draft on Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Burnes was floated in trade rumors throughout the offseason, though it appeared that perhaps he'd begin the 2024 campaign with the Brewers. Instead, he'll provide a front-line arm to strengthen the Orioles rotation. Even in a down year relative to his lofty standards, Burnes put together a 3.39 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with a 200:66 K:BB across 193.2 innings in 2023 and will now call pitcher-friendly Camden Yards his home park.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Reaches deal for $15.6 million

    Burnes signed a one-year, $15.6 million contract with the Brewers on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Burnes and the Brewers failed to agree to terms last offseason, and he openly spoke about his displeasure with the arbitration process. After another strong year in 2023, Burnes was able to reach an agreement with the club and will see a $5.5 million increase in salary. Assuming no long-term agreement is reached in the coming months, he will hit free agency following the 2024 season.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Fires four scoreless in win

    Burnes did not allow a run on five hits and one walk across four innings in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals. He struck out four. Burnes earned some rest in advance of the playoffs, only throwing 66 pitches across four innings before turning the ball over to Julio Teheran. The right-hander has put together another excellent season, pitching to a 3.39 ERA and 1.07 WHIP across 193.2 innings. Notably, he reached the 200 strikeout milestone for the third season in a row, highlighting his consistency and reliability when taking the mound.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Earns win with five scoreless

    Burnes (10-8) earned the win Friday, allowing two hits and two walks over five scoreless innings against the Marlins. He struck out six. Burnes was handed a big early lead and went into cruise control against Miami's punchless lineup, yielding only two singles in what was ultimately a 16-1 postseason-clinching victory for Milwaukee. The ace right-hander is lined up to make one final regular-season start next week against the Cardinals, but it could be an abbreviated outing as the Brewers plot out their plans for October.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Fans nine in no-decision

    Burnes allowed four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out nine batters over 5.2 innings in a no-decision against Washington on Saturday. Burnes sprained his ankle in his previous start Sunday against the Yankees but was able to take the mound six days later without restrictions. He allowed just one run and held a 5-1 lead through five frames but couldn't get out of the sixth, yielding five straight baserunners that resulted in three runs with two outs. Aside from his final frame, Burnes looked very strong, racking up 15 swinging strikes and nine punchouts. He's posted a respectable 3.69 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 65:21 K:BB across 63.1 frames over his past 10 starts but hasn't earned a win during that stretch.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Set to make next start Saturday

    Burnes (ankle) is listed as the Brewers' scheduled starting pitcher for Saturday's game against the Nationals at American Family Field. Burnes sprained his left ankle during his most recent outing Sunday against the Yankees, but he apparently emerged from his between-starts bullpen session no worse for the wear and will be ready to return to the bump on five days' rest. Heading into the weekend, the Brewers hold a comfortable 4.5-game lead over the Cubs for first place in the National League Central, but Burnes shouldn't face any limitations with his workloads or have any turns in the rotation skipped until Milwaukee officially clinches the division crown.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Sustains sprained ankle

    Burnes was removed from Sunday's start against the Yankees due to a sprained left ankle, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Burnes struck out seven in eight no-hit innings during Sunday's matchup, but he suffered an ankle injury while making an inning-ending out in the seventh. Although he's sore, he expects to be fine for his next start, which tentatively lines up for next weekend at home against the Nationals.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Falters after strong start

    Burnes (9-8) took the loss against Pittsburgh on Monday, allowing four runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out seven batters over six innings. Burnes began well, retiring nine of 11 batters through three scoreless frames. However, he served up a game-tying two-run homer to Jack Suwinski in the fourth and yielded two more runs in the fifth. That was enough to saddle him with the loss in a game during which Milwaukee managed just two runs. Burnes extended his streak of starts without a win to eight contests, though he hasn't been all that bad during that span with a 3.99 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 49:16 K:BB over 49.2 frames. He's still above .500 with a 9-8 record on the campaign, though his 3.63 ERA is well below the standard he set over the previous three seasons, when his worst ERA was 2.94.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Hammered for six runs

    Burnes did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing six runs on eight hits and one walk over six innings in a victory over the Twins. He struck out five. Burnes didn't have his best stuff Wednesday, allowing back-to-back singles to open the contest before going on to surrender three home runs on the day, the most he's allowed in a start since May 22. It was the right-hander's third time this season allowing at least six earned runs, and he's now given up at least five runs in two of his last three starts. Burnes holds a 4.74 ERA through four August starts after pitching to a 1.85 ERA in July and is now winless over his last six outings.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Stuggles in no-decision

    Burnes did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing five runs on eight hits and three walks over 5.2 innings against the White Sox. He struck out five. Burnes had not allowed more than two runs in any start since the beginning of July, and the 11 baserunners he allowed were more than in any of his starts since 2021. Despite his struggles, Burnes left with the lead in the sixth, but the Brewers allowed the White Sox to send the game to extras, negating the opportunity for Burnes to pick up his 10th victory. Burnes' next opportunity to reach double figures in the win column will likely come next week in a road matchup against the Dodgers.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Tosses another quality start

    Burnes completed six innings Saturday, allowing two runs on two hits and four walks while striking out five batters in a no-decision against Pittsburgh. Despite tying a season high with four walks, Burnes was effective in the outing, allowing just a pair of hits. Both of those knocks came in the fifth inning, with the second of the two -- a Jason Delay double -- producing both of the runs charged to his ledger. The veteran hurler stuck around to complete six frames, giving him his seventh consecutive quality start and his 16th overall on the season, tied for third in the majors. Burnes' stats haven't been quite as good as they were the past few seasons, but he's still been impressive with a 3.42 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 141:50 K:BB over 139.1 innings.

    Burnes (9-6) was charged with the loss Tuesday against the Reds after he gave up two runs on three hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out six. Burnes was once again in peak form, though Cincinnati was able to tally a pair of runs during the fourth inning on two singles, a walk and a hit-by-pitch. The right-hander totaled 31 called and swinging strikes as he delivered a fifth straight quality start, though he was unable to extend his four-start win streak. Burnes has a 3.46 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 131:43 K:BB across 127.1 innings this season.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Fans 10 over eight scoreless

    Burnes (9-5) earned the win after striking out 10 Phillies on Thursday, allowing two hits and a walk over eight scoreless innings.

Burnes has won four consecutive starts and has a 1.33 ERA, 0.63 WHIP and 36:9 K:BB across 27 innings during that stretch. A matchup with the Reds likely awaits early next week, and he has a 2.50 ERA with 26 strikeouts over 18 frames in his three starts against them this season.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Punches out 13 in win

    Burnes (8-5) earned the win Friday, allowing two hits and two walks over six scoreless innings against the Reds. He struck out 13. At one point Burnes stepped off the mound and was evaluated by the medical staff, but he powered through whatever was ailing him and finished with his first double-digit strikeout performance of the season. The Milwaukee bullpen completed the shutout and brought the Brewers back into a tie for first in the NL Central. Burnes, who was told by GM Matt Arnold that he will not be traded at the deadline, now has a 3.73 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 115 strikeouts in 113.1 innings this season.
