A spring that starter roughly for Scotty Bradley ends on a much higher note. On Wednesday the junior first baseman was selected in the 36th round of the MLB Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays.

Bradley didn’t stick in the lineup full-time until late March, but once he started firing on all cylinders he became an important part of the IU lineup. He ended the season with a .260 batting average, nine home runs and 27 runs batted in including a pair on a triple against Ball State:

At the next level his bat will be his main tool. He should be capable of hitting well at the next level as he typically takes a good approach at the plate and makes good contact. He does have one year of college eligibility left, but has already graduated as a redshirt junior which could encourage him to turn pro. He’ll have plenty of time to make a decision, as the Blue Jays will retain his rights until 11:59 p.m. ET on August 15, 2019 or until he returns to school full-time.
