Notes:

(Updated 7/5) Burr got off to a very fast start in 2016 with a lights out may that saw him sport a 0.77 ERA with a 10:4 K:BB ratio in 11.2 innings pitched. June was another story which saw him give up eight earned runs in 9.1 innings pitched with batters hitting .325 off of him. He finished the month on the disabled list. It is really the first adversity Burr has seen at the pro level since being drafted by the D-Backs out of Arizona State. How he will respond upon his return from injury will be key.
