2013 Top 40 Season in Review

Scouting Report: At one point considered a mid-to-high first-round pick, Bradley fell to the supplemental round due to a poor start to the 2011 college season in which he hit .259 in 37 games, followed by a tendon injury in his left wrist that ended his junior campaign. Hits from an open stance. Closes down well on pitch approach to keep himself balanced. Quick and fluid hands. Generates plus bat speed. Swing has slight upward plane through the hitting zone, but is a little on the long side. Can struggle with balls on the inner third due to over-extension. Solid bat control. Projects as a plus hitter for average with work needed hitting inside the ball and building professional approach. Tends to look middle-to-in consistently. Will need to focus on hitting the other way more in the majors. Tends to hook balls on outer third and roll over them. Patient and displays strong recognition of secondary offerings. Lean frame. Ability to add a little more weight, but will not fill out considerably. Fringe-average power potential. Home run totals project in the single digits at the major-league level. Average speed, plays up both offensively and defensively due to outstanding instincts. Polished defensively. Projects to stick in center field. Plus-plus defender. Displays strong natural instincts. Gets excellent reads and jumps on balls hit out his way. Plus arm. Outstanding baseball makeup and high baseball IQ. Projects as an above-average regular on a first-division team.
