MLB Draft Live Blog
The Arizona Diamondbacks pick again at #7 and select Broken Arrow High School pitcher Archie Bradley. Broken Arrow is a cool name for a high school. The Diamondbacks got this pick as compensation when last year's first rounder, Barrett Loux, did not sign due to injury. Bradley has a mid 90s fastball and the best curveball in the draft. He is committed to play college baseball and football at Oklahoma, but will likely sign which is good for the DBacks since this pick is unprotected. Bradley will need to develop a pitch that can can lefties out, either a good cutter, a changeup or a splitter, to become the #1 or #2 starter he has the potential to be.
