Part of a huge 35-man recruiting class New Mexico State coach Brian Green brought to Las Cruses in 2016, Bradish quickly separated himself from the rest of the pack, solidifying a weekend rotation role that he's maintained all three seasons. Bradish opened eyes in the Cape Cod League last summer, starting on a temporary contract and earning an all-star nod. Bradish earned mixed reports earlier this spring with lower velocity than he showed in the Cape, but he's picked it back up since then, working 91-93 mph and touching 96 mph. He creates great angle with his over-the-top arm slot, especially with his 12-to-6 curveball, which has excellent depth and has taken a jump forward this season. It's a swing-and-miss pitch with plus potential. Bradish still needs to work on a third pitch, and he needs to limit his walks--he has 104 strikeouts to 47 walks through 74.2 innings this season. But his combination of present stuff and his projectable 6-foot-4, 190-pound frame give him starter's upside. Bradish should be off the board by the third or fourth round.
