Bradley Zimmer is the #1 prospect in the Cleveland system.
I have gotten his autograph a couple times over the years, and I was not going to bug him when I was in vacation in Akron. But I found this picture, and figured what the heck–when he is starting in the Indians outfield in a couple seasons I would probably regret not getting him one last time. I got this the day after the Eastern League All-Star game…so he had every right to blow me off after that circus. But he didn’t, and was actually very nice.
Zimmer is playing right now in the Arizona Fall League–and wrecking up the place. He is hitting .300/.533/.600 in 20 at bats. He has a HR, and also leads the league in stolen bases with 6.
I am still bummed that we lost Clint Frazier–though it was totally worth it to get Miller–but having a talent like Zimmer so close to the majors takes the sting out.
