MLB.com - 

A two-way talent coming out of the California high school ranks, Brodey played the outfield and pitched briefly in relief for Stanford as a freshman. He left the mound behind for good as a sophomore and has been a mainstay in the lineup the last two seasons, putting up solid, albeit unspectacular numbers along the way. Brodey entered the spring as a college performer who had the chance to move up boards, maybe even into Day 1 territory, with a strong junior season, especially after an All-Star performance in the Cape Cod League. He didn't produce quite as well as he did over the summer, though he did show off some offensive skills that made him intriguing in the first place. He is capable of barreling up the baseball, with an improved approach at the plate that saw him increase his walk rate considerably as a junior. That should enable him tap into his power more consistently, important for him to profile at an outfield corner. Because of his fringy speed and arm, Brodey is destined for left field, so the bat will have to play enough for him to be a regular. Even if his star faded a bit from summer to spring, Brodey is still very much on teams' radars. He could be a good fit for a team that puts weight on a Cape League performance in particular in the top six rounds.


Frankie Piliere @FPiliereD1 - #Mets take Quinn Brodey - one of my favorite college guys in the country. Good tools across the board, will hit for more power as a pro

That write up seems a bit like kissing your sister. I would have preferred a power bat.

the whole draft system is awful... we have to choose players early who will take less so we can save money later...
How about being able to sign everyone you select... then you draft the highest player available ... period end of story...

Eddie, you're right - one can wish.
