Jake Burger's professional career is only a few games old, but he is already showcasing the power that led the White Sox to draft him in the first round of the draft in June.
Burger debuted for the Arizona League affiliate of the White Sox on July 2 and hit his first home run on the Fourth of July. Burger has played three games and is 2-for-9 with that home run, a double and a walk.
Burger has played third base twice and was designated hitter when he homered.
The Missouri State product is joined by second-round pick Gavin Sheets in Arizona. Sheets, a first baseman from Wake Forest, debuted in the same game as Burger and is 3-for-8 with a pair of doubles and three walks so far.
