Born in Caracas, Venezuela and raised near Atlanta, Georgia, Burkard was drafted out of high school in 2006 by the Los Angeles Dodgers but opted to play baseball at Georgia College and State University instead. After playing three years of college ball, Burkard was drafted once again, this time 2010 by the Los Angeles Angels. He spent parts of four seasons in the Angels organisation, and had his best year in 2012 with the Inland Empire 66ers, going 3-0 with a 3.21 ERA in 56 innings pitched. The Angels released him after he appeared in 15 games for the 66ers in 2013, and he finished the season with the Trois-Rivieres Aigles (Quebec, Canada) of the independent Canadian-American Association. After a disappointing 2014 season with the Aigles, in which he went 0-2 with a 10.03 ERA in three appearances, Burkard is looking for a bounce-back season in the ABL. A strikingly tall, outgoing lefty with a huge personality, Burkard has swing-and-miss stuff. Though born in Venezuela, he is also of Italian descent and was a reserve pitcher for Team Italy in the 2013 World Baseball Classic and also joined Italian professional team Fortitudo Bologna in the 2013 Asia Series. In addition to his baseball career, Burkard is also an Atlanta, Georgia-based model.
