2. RHP Braden Shipley (#26)
Fastball: 60. Curve: 55. Changeup: 55. Control: 50
Along with Bradley, Braden Shipley is part of the Diamondbacks immediate feature.
Shipley has only been a full time pitcher for three years, but he certainly knows what he is doing on the mound. He was ranked 79th on last years list, and his rapid rise is a testament to his great 2014 season.
Shipley was Arizona’s first round pick in the 2013 draft, and has three swing and miss pitches: a mid-90’s fastball, a plus changeup, and a solid curveball. He moved from Class A to Double A in 2015, and it wouldn’t surprise me if he makes his big league debut this year.
Baseball America has Shipley higher than MLB.com (#41) did.
