RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After blasting 27 home runs with a .890 OPS in 108 games at Low-A last season, Bradley emerged as the most intriguing first base prospect in the lower levels of the minors. His initial numbers in 39 games after getting drafted in 2014 (.361/.426/.652) put him squarely on the map in dynasty leagues, and he followed that up by completely outclassing the rest of the sluggers in the Midwest League, despite commencing his first full season assignment as an 18-year-old. Bradley, who won’t turn 20 until May 29, has not shown any platoon issues, but there is some noticeable swing-and-miss in his game. He had a 31.8 percent K-rate at Low-A, but still got on base at a .361 clip thanks to a 12 percent walk rate. Bradley’s combination of youth, early professional success, and an approach to all fields bodes well for his ability to make it as an everyday option at the highest level. He should begin 2016 at High-A Lynchburg as one of the youngest position players in the Carolina League.
