2011 MLB Draft Tracker: Brewers Pick Georgia Tech Ace Jed Bradley

Milwaukee Brewers: Jed Bradley (LHP, Georgia Tech)

As stated earlier, the Brewers need everything, and a few weeks ago they wouldn't have expected Bradley to be available at this point in the draft. Bradley mixes an 88-94 MPH fastball, a plus slider, and a solid changeup, changing speeds with excellent command and throwing strikes with ease. His fastball has plenty of sink and hitters have a hard time driving it for extra bases; he's given up just one homer this year. He went 7-3, 3.49 ERA with a 106/31 K/BB in 98 innings this year. Big and strong at 6-4, 225, his size and pitch efficiency promise durability, though he wore down a little as the college season progressed.

In the Milwaukee system, Bradley should be expected to advance to the majors within two years. He isn't likely to develop into a number one starter, but he should be a solid number three type, throwing strikes and eating innings.
