Jed Bradley gets career back on track

(5/15/2013) After a horrendous first pro season in 2012, which was marred by injury and inconsistency, Brewers pitching prospect Jed Bradley is beginning to round into form for Class A Brevard County. After going 5-10 with a 5.53 ERA in 20 starts last season for Brevard County, the 2011 first-round pick is 3-1 with a 3.69 ERA through seven starts this season.
"I'm not completely satisfied, but it's been a lot better than last season," Bradley said, per MLB.com.
Bradley, who is considered the Brewers' fifth-best prospect by MLB.com, has seen a change in production after bulking up to 235 pounds in the offseason.
"I had to come to grips with the fact that the hard work needs to be done in the offseason," said Bradley, who had dropped to 205 pounds as he dealt with his stomach issues last August. "During the season, you just need to concentrate on maintenance. It's quality, not quantity."
