With 8 homers and 35 RBIs in 299 at-bats, he has a batting average of 227. As part of an outfield that was among the least productive in the majors, he split his time between center field and right field, putting up an OPS+ of 85.
On April 7th, just before the start of the 2022 season, the now-renamed Guardians dealt him to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for P Anthony Castro.
Zimmer’s brother, pitcher Kyle Zimmer, was also a first-round pick in the 2012 amateur draft, taking fifth overall.
Bradley homered off Kyle, who was pitching for the Kansas City Royals, on September 27, 2021, the first time a player had done so against his brother since Joe Niekro did it against his brother Phil in 1975.
Rick Ferrell homered against Wes Ferrell in 1933 and George Stovall homered off Jesse Stovall in 1904 were the only two other times this happened in big league history.
