Bridges earns Brett Wallace comparisons because he's a big-bodied lefthanded hitter who can produce for average and might have interesting power if he adds loft to his swing. That parallel comes with good and bad, because Wallace went 13th overall in the 2008 draft but has been ineffective in the big leagues. Bridges draws mixed reviews on whether he's ready for pro ball or would be better served attending Missouri State. A 6-foot-4, 220-pounder, he does a nice job of using the entire field as a hitter. He has cleaned up his body and has soft hands, yet his below-average speed and footwork probably have him destined for first base. He has arm strength and has been clocked at 85-86 mph while pitching.
