11/09/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Braden is a lean, projectable two-way player who competes hard and works to improve every time he's on the field. He has feel at the plate with the ability to make solid contact and flash pop to all fields. His hands work well loading to a powerful bat angle and launching on a level path through the zone. He shows good barrel accuracy and makes consistent, square contact to spray hits to all fields. At short, he works on efficient angles to the ball to cover plenty of ground in the hole and up the middle. He fields cleanly and shows quick hands to exchange and release to make good feeds and throws. On the bump, this right hander works quickly from a high 3/4 arm slot with smooth rhythm in his delivery. He features a tailing fastball in the mid to upper 60's with tailing life into right handed hitters. Developing a breaking pitch will go a long way towards his ability to get through a lineup. Braden is an intriguing prospect we look forward to seeing more of.
