Athletics outfield prospect Billy Burns went 4-for-5 with a double, a triple, and a stolen base for Double-A Midland on Saturday.
Burns had Athletics fans buzzing after a great spring training, but scuffled out of the gate, hitting just .217/.318/.248 through the season's first 34 games. He has come on as of late, hitting .386/.419/.561 over his last 15 games to raise his season line to .269/.347/.344. Burns has little to no power and his extra base hits are more a product of his ability to use his speed to take extra bases rather than hard contact. The 24-year old may get promoted to Triple-A Sacramento soon, but is unlikely to be an impact player at the major league level. Jun 8 - 11:49 AM
