Former St. John’s standout reliever Danny Burawa, a 2010 MLB Draft pick, was called up to the Major Leagues over the weekend by the New York Yankees. He made his Major League debut on Sunday, coming out of the bullpen against the Detroit Tigers, picking up one strikeout in 0.2 innings of work.

“We are very happy to see Danny get called up,” said head coach Ed Blankmeyer. “He has worked very hard to achieve his dream.”

Pitching for the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders prior to his call up, Burawa had gone 1-1 with one save and a 1.75 ERA in 26 appearances this season. The reliever had 30 strikeouts in 36.0 innings of work, while allowing just a .169 opponent average.

Burawa was added to the 40-man roster following a 2014 season in which he went 3-1 with four saves and a 4.70 ERA in 42 combined appearances in Triple-A and Double-A. The righty had 73 strikeouts in 59.1 innings of work overall.

The reliever had a breakout season with the Double-A Trenton Thunder in 2013, going 6-3 with four saves and a 2.59 ERA in 46 appearances. Burawa added 66 strikeouts in 66.0 innings of work, while allowing just a .202 batting average.
