PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks announced today they have signed first-round draft pick and right-handed pitcher Archie Bradley, according to D-backs' Senior Vice President, Scouting & Player Development Jerry Dipoto and Director, Scouting Ray Montgomery.

"We are ecstatic Archie is an Arizona Diamondback," said Dipoto. "This negotiation was the final piece of our plan for the 2011 draft, and we are thrilled we were able to complete the deal. We are extremely pleased with the talent we signed and consider this to be a very successful draft."

"Archie is a very talented athlete and upstanding young man, who embodies what we are looking for in our players," said Montgomery. "We believe Archie has a bright future ahead of him and will be a significant contributor to the organization's success."

Bradley, 18, was the D-backs' second first-round selection and seventh overall pick in Major League Baseball's 2011 First-Year Player Draft.. He posted a 12-1 record and 0.29 ERA with 137 strikeouts and 11 walks in 71.3 innings to lead Broken Arrow High School to the Oklahoma Class 6A state championship this year. The senior also hit .395 with a team-leading 9 home runs and 31 RBI. Bradley was named The Oklahoman's All-State Baseball Player of the Year and to the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State team. He was selected to the Oklahoma Coaches Association's All-State Large School Baseball Game but did not participate. He also was a pre-season All-America selection by Louisville Slugger before his senior campaign and was named to the AFLAC All-America roster after his junior season in 2010. Bradley was committed to play football and baseball at the University of Oklahoma.

Overall, the D-backs signed 39 of their 52 draft selections this year. The players who have agreed to contract terms with the D-backs are noted in bold.
