The fixation for “Ambiorix Burgos”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=7528 is he pushes three digits on the radar gun. His upside is greater than that of Lino Urdaneta, who hasn’t pitched in over a week.
Burgos got off to a bad start with the homer to Ryan Howard. Willie Randolph was trying to throw him a bone, give him a chance to do something positive and it blew up in his face.
Still, he improved in subsequent appearances. His control was spotty, but there were signs of getting better. In three games at Triple-A New Orleans spanning five innings, Burgos gave up three runs and five hits, and struck out six and walked three.
