With the LumberKings continuing their strong second-half play, we preview what remains of the regular season schedule (33:00).
Enjoy Episode 22 of A-Ball!
Following his pro debut, Baseball America named Bradshaw the “best pure hitter” signed by the Marlins in their 2018 draft class.
His production has taken a slight step back at the full-season level. Bradshaw is slashing .253/.302/.295 through 61 games for the LumberKings while getting reps in both left field and right field. He enters Wednesday with hits in 15 of his 18 August contests.
