  • Rangers' Brock Burke: First appearance in a week

    Burke allowed one run on two hits while striking out one over 1.1 innings in Monday's 7-2 loss to the Tigers.

    A rested Burke threw 27 pitches during his first outing in seven days. The Rangers burned through the their more trusted arms during a stretch of close games before Monday presented an opportunity to dust off Burke, Yerry Rodriguez and Cody Bradford.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Earns second win

    Burke (2-0) pitched a scoreless 1.1 innings to earn Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Burke retired all four batters faced on balls that never left the infield. After starter Jon Gray worked 5.1 innings, Burke was the pitcher of record when Ezequiel Duran put Texas ahead for good with a two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning. The left-hander has remained unscathed in a bullpen that's taken its lumps recently. He's not overpowering, but Burke hasn't allowed a run in seven innings and has a 2.03 ERA over 13.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Logs second hold

    Burke allowed one run on one hit and struck out one over two innings to earn a hold in Monday's 11-2 win over Kansas City.

    Burke allowed a seventh-inning home run to Hunter Dozier, but by that point, the Rangers had given him a 10-run lead, so it was all about throwing strikes and getting the easy win. This was Burke's second hold in four appearances, which have all come in middle relief. He's entered games in the fifth or sixth innings. The left-hander has allowed two runs on six hits while striking out five and walking none over 5.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Works scoreless seventh

    Burke allowed one hit and struck out one over a scoreless seventh inning in Monday's spring game against Cincinnati.

    Burke has been mentioned as a possible candidate for saves and part of a closer mix. This was his first Cactus League appearance. Of note, Jose Leclerc, the leading candidate to close, pitched a scoreless fourth inning.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Variety of roles possible

    Burke and the Rangers discussed a return to the rotation earlier in the offseason, and he's now being considered for the closer spot as well, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    While the Rangers seemingly aren't certain how they'll use Burke next season, it's clear they like him quite a bit. It's easy to see why, as he recorded a 1.97 ERA last season in 82.1 innings of relief, backing that number up with a 27.4 percent strikeout rate and 7.3 percent walk rate. He was a starter in the minors and regularly threw multiple innings last season, so it could make sense for the Rangers to stretch him out and have him ready as the top fill-in should any of their starters' long injury histories get even longer. Given his success in relief, however, it could make sense for the Rangers to keep him in the bullpen, where he'll compete with Jose Leclerc, Jonathan Hernandez and potentially others for saves.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Takes fourth loss

    Burke (7-4) took the loss against the Guardians on Saturday, allowing two runs on two hits while issuing two walks and striking out two batters over 2.1 innings.

    Burke entered the game in the seventh and struck out Oscar Gonzalez swinging to start the inning before giving up a solo homer to Andres Gimenez on a 2-1 slider. After retiring the next two batters, Burke returned in the eighth and allowed a leadoff walk to Steven Kwan followed by a ground-rule double in the next at-bat to put the Rangers down 3-1. The reliever has still allowed just three earned runs in six September appearances (10.1 innings) with a 12:6 K:BB over that stretch.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Throws two innings, earns hold

    Burke allowed zero runs on one hit and one walk while striking out three over two innings in Monday's 2-1 win over the Athletics.

    Burke entered the game with a 2-1 lead in the seventh inning and threw two scoreless innings to secure his seventh hold of the season. The southpaw has taken to his transition to the bullpen this season, as he owns a 1.29 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. A lot can be chalked up to luck as he owns a high 92.5 percent strand rate and low 7.5 percent HR/FB rate, but he has gotten the job done and could be a source of strong ratios the rest of the season in deeper leagues.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Takes loss in extra frame

    Burke (3-1) allowed an unearned run on one walk while striking one over 1.1 innings to pick up his first loss of the season Sunday against Seattle in an extra inning.

    Burke first cleaned up the mess made by Matt Bush in the ninth inning to preserve a tie game, but he fell victim to the ghost runner scoring on his own wild pitch in the extra frame. Burke has been very good out of the Rangers' bullpen and is deserving of high-leverage chances, but this one didn't work out. The left-hander sports a 0.96 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 32 strikeouts and nine walks over 28 innings.

  • Rangers' Brock Burke: Shines in relief again

    Burke allowed one hit and struck out one over two scoreless innings in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Angels.

    Burke made a sixth consecutive scoreless appearance, during which he's allowed seven hits and two walks while striking out nine over 11.1 innings. Five of those outings and 10 of 13 overall have lasted more than three outs. The left-hander, a former starter, finally appears to be healthy after a 2019 shoulder injury put a hole in his career. Burke hinted that shoulder was better at the end of the 2021 in the minors, when he allowed two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out 14 over his final 13 innings at Triple-A Round Rock.
