The minor league outfielder stole 74 bases in 81 attempts while splitting time between Nationals' Class-A and Double-A affiliates last season. And Burns — who was traded to the A's at the end of 2013 — seems to be blazing a trail to the big leagues.
The 24-year-old prospect — playing for the Midland Rockhounds —already has people comparing the speedster to Ricky Henderson and with good reason.
On Tuesday, Burns managed to score a run on a sacrifice fly — after tagging up from second base!
That's Henderson territory right there. Just don't pull a hammy.
