Red Sox Top Prospect Voting #14: Jackie Bradley Jr. And The Lost Pizza

Oh wow! We actually have a picture of this one! (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)

Consider the following tweet, and who you might expect it to come from:

Not going to lie. Im kind of upset that the housekeeping lady threw away my 2 slices of leftover pizza. I guess my hiding spot wasn't good.

If your answer was "a college kid," then you're pretty much correct. If your answer was "the supplemental first round pick from last year and our choice for prospect #13," then that is both remarkably specific and accurate.

While Jackie Bradley Jr. might need to improve in the departments of pizza hiding and housekeeping, he is apparently a pretty decent baseball player. A strong all-around outfielder, Bradley brings a quick bat and advanced approach to the plate to go with a strong defensive skill set that should land him solidly in right field.

He's made only limited appearances for the Red Sox after an injury-shortened season with the Gamecocks allowed them to pick him up with the 40th overall pick, but should be ready to start the year in full-season ball. Given a decent start, he could be one of the fastest rising players for the Sox in the coming year as he proves his wrist is all the way back.

1. Ryan Lavarnway, C/DH

3. Xander Bogaerts, SS
4. Ryan Kalish, OF
5. Anthony Ranaudo, SP

11. Blake Swihart, C
12. Sean Coyle, 2B
13. Jackie Bradley Jr., OF

Given how close this last vote was, we almost don't need to go again for spot #14. Then again, crazier things have been known to happen, so we'll follow the usual drill: rec below to vote, or start a new thread if you don't like my choices.

Vote away!
