Brayden is a RHP/SS prospect who will graduate in 2028. A young/developing player with some strength present and plenty of room to add throughout. At SS, he works to center the baseball, with quick feet, and showed ability to make routine plays. He closes distance on baseball and has good glove actions. Has a clean exchange as he throws from a high 3/4 arm slot coming forward with an arm velocity up to 67mph. He fields from a low fielding position and made on-line throws to first base. On the mound, he separates his hands on-time, with a quick/clean arm stroke, and works with good direction down the mound. Brayden has good mechanics and showed ability to repeat them. He throws a FB that sits 63-65mph, a cutter with correct shape, and a developing changeup. At the plate, he hits from an athletic and open stance. A quiet head and level eyes enable him to track pitches well. He has simple and repeatable swing. During his round of BP, he hit line drives to all fields with a bat exit velocity up to 62mph. With 6 years of continued growth and development until he graduates, we foresee this 2-way player making huge strides on the baseball field.
