#1 Kyle Bradish – RHP 4th round pick (2018) out of New Mexico St.

Kyle Bradish was highly touted when he was drafted in the fourth round out of New Mexico State last summer.  Bradish has pitched half of the season at Inland Empire and made the All-Star team.  Bradish has been said to throw up to 96 MPH, but so far has topped out at 94 MPH and has mostly been 90-92 this season. He also throws a slider, change-up, and a curve ball.

Bradish has had some injury issues but hopes to be through that after a short two-week stint on the IL.  Bradish has a 3-3 with a 3.50 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP.  He has struck out 58 batters in 43.2 innings with 20 walks.

Bradish’s upside is tremendous as he is one of those guys that when he puts it together can be lights out. He will probably stay in Single-A until maybe the last month of the season when he will probably get a chance to pitch in Double-A.

What makes Bradish so tough besides his tremendous stuff is his unusual delivery which almost looks like a right-handed version of Clayton Kershaw.  We will see how he develops over the next year, but don’t be surprised to see him in Anaheim by 2021.

Mike Trout is unbelievable doing amazing things daily. Next

Again this list is up for discussion, but hopefully it will give you some insight of the Angels lower level prospects that you should keep an eye on and that might be in Anaheim in the next couple of years. You could also see some of these players traded during the trade deadline period, especially if the Angels try to improve by going after some major league talent.
