11/02/2013 - 2013 Under Armour Futures Series Texas Braden is an exciting young prospect with outstanding speed, the ability to play the SS position, and excellent hitting tools. At the plate, he is a natural hitter who gets the barrel through the zone quickly and gets very good extension after contact. His quick hands allow him to let the ball travel, and then explode through contact. Despite his slight build, he shows some ability to drive the ball to deep parts of the park. As a defender, Braden's plus speed translates to a quick first step and good lateral range. His hands are soft and his actions are fluid. Overall, Braden is the rare prospect who profiles to stay at shortstop and also make an impact in the lineup at the next level.
