From MLB.com on Brady
Comments: Brady, a left-hander out of Baker H.S. (Fla.), is among the top Florida high school pitchers in this year's Draft class. He is polished for a high schooler and has the potential for three Major League-average pitches. Brady's fastball sits in the upper-80s to low-90s. He mixes it with a curveball and changeup, both of which are promising. He has a clean delivery and has a good feel for his whole arsenal.
Round 37 (#1,101 overall)
IF GARRETT SMITH
AGE/DOB: 23, February 7, 1990 College: California Lutheran University (CA)
BATS/THROWS: S/R HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6-3/178
