Bradley had signed a letter of intent to play baseball and football the University of Oklahoma, but decided to play for the Diamondbacks.

The 18-year-old from Oklahoma was the seventh overall pick in this year’s draft after going 12-1 with a 0.29 ERA while leading Broken Arrow High School to last year’s 6A Class state championship.

Arizona signed former UCLA pitcher Trevor Bauer, the third overall pick, to a $4.45 million, four-year deal two weeks ago.
