Player Profile: Burke Badenhop

I have one card of Burke Badenhop, from 2010 Upper Deck.

Playing career: Burke Badenhop came up with Florida in 2008 and has been a steady if unspectacular reliever for the Marlins, Rays and Brewers, going 18-20 with 3 saves and a 3.98 ERA in 280 games.

Where he is now: After one season in Milwaukee, he was traded to the Red Sox last month. Boston will be his first big-market team, which could be difficult for him, as in this June 2013 interview he expressed concern about one day having to pitch for a team in a big city.

My memories: It’s an unusual name so kind of familiar, but no specific memories.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Burke B, ahead of Burke Basketball, an instructional facility in Virginia. There do not appear to be any other prominent Burke Badenhops.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Trevor Bauer.
