The classic all-promise righthander, Arizona's Archie Bradley is a potentially outstanding pitcher who's only a changeup short of a major league career very soon. Of course, that's the pitching equivalent of a hitter who can handle everything except a curve ball, so this youngster's future will depend mighty heavily on how many MPH he can subtract when called upon to do so. If he stumbles, his big fastball and plus curve should still serve his team well in relief, but we won't know for another year or two which road he'll be taking from South Bend to Mobile.

With Bronson Arroyo sidelined by a bulging disk, Archie Bradley may land an opening day rotation spot, according to SI's Tom Verducci's parsing of Arizona GM Kevin Towers. Bradley's certainly looking sharp: the 21 year old righthander has allowed only three hits and hasn't given up a run in two appearances, striking out nine batters in six innings of early work.
