doing fine, dontcha know

Double-A can be daunting. Many a top prospect has hit the wall at that level. Former Harrison Central High star Bobby Bradley has had his struggles there this season, but his hitting coach at Akron, Johnny Narron, doesn’t sound concerned about the Cleveland prospect. “When Bobby is on his game, we call it ‘Bobby’s World,’” Narron told milb.com. “He is in a good place.” Bradley was on his game Saturday, dontcha know, hitting two home runs, including a grand slam, in a win against New Hampshire. The 21-year-old lefty-hitting first baseman had just one homer in his previous 19 games. He now has 10 for the year and 74 for his career, which began in 2014 when the Indians drafted him in the third round. Bradley is batting .239 with a .340 on-base mark, 34 RBIs and 57 strikeouts in 184 at-bats. There is still work to do in “Bobby’s World,” dontcha know, but Bradley is not out of his league in Double-A.
