Archie Bradley is a minor leaguer in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. He was drafted. 7th in the 2011 major league draft and he is currently in A ball but looks to proceed quickly through the ranks. He is the DBacks top pitching prospect and should be an ace for them by 2015. Archie did walk alot of batters in his debut season (5.8/9 innings) but his K rate is also incredibly high. He was 12-6 with a 3.84 ERA which is fantastic for a kid that is 20. Archie projects to be a player you want to build around. Comparisons are: Verlander, Kershaw. Yes, that good.
