Bradley Suttle Scouting Report (2008)
Twice drafted, Bradley Suttle’s latest selection was by the Yankees in the 4th round of the 2007 draft out of the University of Texas. After appearing in only three games after signing, Suttle received his first substantial professional action in 2008 with the Charleston Riverdogs.
At 22, a .271/.348/.456 line in the Sally is underwhelming to say the least. In watching him play, his performance set off red flags as his lack of athleticism and age for the league left me questioning whether or not Suttle would be able to make the necessary adjustments as he proceeds up the organizational ladder.
- A solid, well built 6’2″, 215
- Mechanical movements; Lacks athleticism
- Strong lower half
- Good bat speed; Drops barrel on the ball well
- Hitch in load; Load could be shorter
- Hands stay low during load; Below letters
- Has difficulty freeing his hands
- Strong arm
- Popped out to RF with men on 2nd and 3rd, 1 out
All in all, Suttle was not a player who would have stood out had I not known who he was entering the game. While he hit the ball hard a couple of times, his mechanical baseball movements tied his body up some. He seems like a player who is doing the best with what he has, only what he has might not be enough. A solid showing in A+ might put him firmly back on the prospect radar, but I’m just not sure he has the growth potential to do much more than he already is.
