Peter Burd is a 2007 RHP/OF with a 6'3'', 215 lb. frame from Concord MA, who attends Hotchkiss School. He has an athletic build with long arms and legs. Burd maintains good balance in his delivery and stays on line to the plate, which enables him to throw consistent strikes and get hitters to swing the bat. Burd's fastball ranged from 71-75 mph with some running action. His curveball had a big sweeping break at 65 mph. We didn't see a change up. Burd's arm action isn't especially projectable and he tends to push the ball with a low elbow. Burd also played some outfield. He ran the 60 in 7.40 and threw 77 mph from the outfield with a similar arm action. He has some pull power at the plate and likes the ball on the inside half. Burd is an outstanding student.

Peter Burd is a 2007 RHP/OF from Concord, MA, with a solid and tall 6'3"/200 pound body. On the mound Burd pitches from a 3/4 arm slot with little effort. His arm is a bit stiff as he throws and he has a stiff front leg in his delivery. Burd gets solid run on his 75 mph fastball and has projectable velocity. He throws his curveball for strikes, and that may be his best pitch. It has an 11-5 break with some tightness and downward biting action at 66 mph. Burd also mixes in a 68 mph change-up. Defensively he threw 76 mph from the outfield, and showed solid reactions on the ball off the bat. The right handed hitter shows his strength at the plate as he makes hard contact and had a single in the game. He would hit more consistent line drives if he kept his head in and stayed tall on his backside, and all the tools are there for him to be a successful hitter.
