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 season in which he hit .259 in 37 games, followed by a tendon injury in his left wrist which ended his season. Hits from an open stance. Closes down well on pitch approach to keep himself balanced. Quick and fluid hands. Generates plus batspeed. Swing has slight upward plane through the hitting zone, but is a little on the long side. Can struggle with balls on the middle third due to over-extension. Solid bat control. Projects as a plus hitter for average with work 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 as a pro. Patient and displays good recognition of secondary offerings. Lean frame. Ability to add a little more weight, but will not fill out considerably. Average power potential. Average speed. Polished defensively and projects to stick in center field. Displays strong natural instincts. Gets excellent reads and jumps on balls hit out his way. Plus arm. Offensive tools to profile as a major league regular.

Career Highlight: 2010 College World series MVP
