Bradley to pitch in Rising Stars showcase

Left-hander Jed Bradley, one of the Brewers’ two first-round picks in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft, made the cut for the Arizona Fall League’s Rising Stars game, a Nov. 5 exhibition to be televised by MLB Network. Paul Severino and Dave Valle will have the call at 5 p.m. CT.

For the first time, the Fall League used social media to announce the rosters on Tuesday, rolling out the participants in batches on Twitter (@MLBAzFallLeague). Bryce Harper, the No. 2 prospect on’s Top 50 Prospects joins the No. 1 prospect — and fellow Scottsdale Scorpions outfielder — Mike Trout of the Angels on the East squad. The East roster is made up from the best prospects currently playing for the Scottsdale Scorpions, Mesa Solar Sox and Salt River Rafters. The West team is comprised of players from the Phoenix Desert Dogs, Peoria Javelinas (which includes Milwaukee’s farmhands) and Surprise Saguaros.
