Braden made his professional debut in July for the D-Backs Class A team, the Hillsboro Hops. After eight starts he was promoted to the South Bend Silver Hawks. He finished strong pitching in four games with an era under three. Hopefully he'll continue to improve.
I picked up this certified autographed card from the 2013 Leaf Metal Draft set. It's shiny so that's nice but otherwise it's kind of a plain design. The lack of logos make it hard to tell which team these guys are even playing for. Braden has an auto in the new Bowman Draft set now too. I guess I'll have to try to pick up one of those at some point.
