RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Making his full season debut, Bradley carried an impressive 10.0 K/9 over 140 innings (28 starts) at Low-A South Bend. There were occasional bouts with poor control (5.6 BB/9), but he showed signs of improvement down the stretch. In addition to a high-90s fastball, Bradley features a curveball and changeup and has proven capable of getting a significant number of his outs on the ground (1.82 GO/AO) and subsequently, keeps the ball in the park (0.45 HR/9). Drafted out of high school in 2011, the next test for Bradley should include opening the season at High-A Visalia as he'll likely need two more seasons of development in the minors before entering the conversation for a rotation spot in Arizona in late 2014 or early 2015.
Bradley passed up the opportunity to play quarterback at the University of Oklahoma to sign with the D-Backs as the seventh overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft. He was limited to rookie- and instructional-league innings after signing and will begin his full-season professional career in 2012 at Low-A South Bend. Already with a fastball that sits in the 95-98 mph range, Bradley also features a good mid-80s curveball and could move quickly for a high school product, putting him on track with a major league ETA of 2014.
