1. Bobby Bradley
Bobby Bradley is fresh off a promotion to Class AAA Columbus and his power continues to intrigue Indians fans who are looking for the eventual heir apparent to first base.
Bradley hit 24 homers with the Akron RubberDucks this past season, unfortunately, he hit .214.
Hopefully, the Tribe gives Bradley more of a chance than the organization gave Jesus Aguilar.
Aguilar didn’t hit for high averages during his time in the minors, but he hit a ton of moonshots for Columbus, blasting 30 homers during the 2016 season.
With launch angle changing the game, Bradley’s power will continue to be of interest to the organization.
If he keeps homering, he should find time at the big-league level at some point in the future just because of the Indians lack long-term depth at the position.
Yonder Alonso and Edwin Encarnacion are under contract for another season. After that, first base becomes wide open.
Bradley only has two homers in his first 20 games with the Clippers, but he’s batting a surprising .268 (.775 OPS).
He’s currently the Indians seventh best prospect, according to MLB Pipeline.
