The Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed rookie right-handed pitcher Dylan Burns.
The 24-year-old recently completed his college career at the University of South Florida and was 5-5 with a 4.32 ERA for the Bulls in 10 starts and eight relief appearances as a senior in 2021.
Burns struck out 84 and allowed just six home runs in 77.0 innings pitched. In the opener game of the NCAA Regionals, he picked up the win in relief against the University of Florida, allowing one earned run and striking out three over three frames. The win helped propel South Florida to a Super Regionals berth against the University of Texas.
Burns made his professional debut on Thursday against the Houston Apollos, and allowed just one earned run over two and two-thirds innings of long relief.
