Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 40 | Power: 60 | Run: 20 | Arm: 50 | Field: 45 | Overall: 50

Signed for an over-slot $912,500 as a third-round pick out of a Mississippi high school in 2014, Bradley won the Rookie-level Arizona League triple crown (.361, eight homers, 50 RBIs) in his pro debut and home-run titles in two Class A leagues in his first two full seasons. He has continued to mash in the upper Minors, slamming 50 homers between Double-A and Triple-A in 2017-18. He's a classic three-true-outcomes player, posting 162-game averages of 34 homers, 78 walks and 188 strikeouts through his first five years as a pro.

Bradley's bat speed and strength create massive left-handed power to all fields, and he tries to make the most of it every time he takes a swing. He does have some natural hitting ability but his ultra-aggressive approach has resulted in a 27-percent strikeout rate in pro ball, including a career-worst 34 percent during his first month in Triple-A last August. Though he's not going to hit for average, he gets pitched around and takes enough walks to fuel healthy on-base percentages.

While almost all of Bradley's value comes from his offense, he made a concerted effort to get into better shape and dropped 25 pounds during the 2017-18 offseason. He's still a bottom-of-the-scale runner, but he showed some improvement at first base, where he has a chance to become an average defender with an arm to match. He doesn't cover enough ground to play the outfield, so DH is his only other option.
