Career Stats
Quick Scouting Report Update: This best prospect acquired in Dylan Bundy trade last winter, Bradish was added to the auxiliary camp in Bowie and pitched quite well. At 6-foot-4 and with an extreme over the top delivery, Bradish comes at hitters at an unusual angle. He’s mainly a fastball-power curveball guy, but he cuts his fastball a lot making him almost a cutter, curveball guy.

His fastball can sit 92-94 and touch 95-96 on occasion, but he gets a lot of swing and miss on his power curveball that sit in the upper 70s or even in the lower 80s at times with good hard bite. He sometimes struggles to command that curveball though and that will determine how good he can be.

The Orioles want to stretch him out and keep him as a starter for now, but without a solid changeup, it seems like a tough go at the major league level unless he can develop a good 3rd pitch.

He might sit at higher velocity is short relief stints so there is some upside as an impact reliever even if he can’t stick as a starter.
