Player Profile: Michael Brady

I have one card of Michael Brady, from 2012 Bowman Prospects.

Playing career: Michael Brady was drafted by the Marlins as a third baseman in 2009, but switched to the mound the next season. Between 2011 and 2013 he put up solid numbers as a closer, saving 63 games in that span. Despite excellent numbers at AA in 2013 (2-2, 23 saves, 1.53 ERA), at age 26 he was not considered a prospect and was put on waivers, where he was claimed by the Angels, for whom he has mostly pitched at the AA level. For AA Arkansas in 2015 he was 7-7 with a 3.77 ERA as the Angels converted him to a starter.

Where he is now: He signed with the Nationals organization for 2016 but has started the season on the disabled list.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is eighth when you type Michael Bra, between Michael Braun, an actor, and Michael Brauer, a music producer. The first entry when you google Michael Brady is not the ballplayer but the Chief Technology Officer at AIG.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Pat Brady.
