Bradden is a solid framed 2021 Outfielder. Moves very well combined with his strong frame (7.02s 60yd Dash). Defensively, he stays active, takes good angles, is agile and works behind and through the baseball. Catches the ball at its highest point and exchanges cleanly to throw. At the plate, this RHH showed good power potential. Sets up squarely, activates and loads well with good rhythm and delivers the barrel to the ball with some force (90mph Bat Exit Velocity). Pull side power hitter should be a middle of the lineup guy at the next level as he continues to mature.

Bradden is an athletic and thin 2021 utility prospect. In the OF, Bradden is on time with his prep step, anticipates the ball off the bat, and creates angles in his routes. He has a quick first step to the ball and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing to the plate. At 1B, Bradden works off the bag and gets into an athletic position to field. He has range on both sides of the ball and picks the ball well. At the plate, Bradden starts in a squared stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and separates on time. He has fast hands, he doesn't get cheated on fastballs, and shows pull side pop. Bradden will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Bradden is a young, solid, 2-way player who plays OF and 1st base. In the OF, Bradden has active feet, he works behind fly balls well, and he takes proper angles to the ball. He is light on his feet, has a clean exchange, and throws with consistency to his target. Abilities in the OF can get better if Bradden can play more through the ball, quicken his exchange, and get rid of the ball a bit quicker. At 1st base, Bradden has soft hands, he moves well to the ball, and fields from the ground-up. He has a long arm action to his target with good direction. Lighter feet, playing lower, and improved accuracy can help INF skills get better. At the plate, Bradden has a square set-up, a proper load, and he uses his lower 1/2 well. He swings in good rhythm and makes hard consistent contact.
