College Baseball Daily continues our countdown to the start of the 2012 College Baseball season by checking in on the Top 100 Players in the country. We will be providing one player per day until we reach number 1.
We continue the countdown today with number 96 with Texas A&M sophomore outfielder Krey Bratsen. He checks in at 6’0 and 175 pounds out of Bryan, Texas where he attended Bryan High School. Bratsen had an outstanding career which saw him win four letters while bringing the team to the state playoffs in each season. The Oakland Athletics selected him in the 45th round of the 2010 MLB Draft but he decided to continue his baseball career at Texas A&M.
Bratsen stepped right into the Aggies lineup as a freshman in 2011 playing in all 69 games while finishing second on the team with a .332 batting average. He chipped in with 36 RBI but his most impressive role is his speed. He led the squad with 31 stolen bases in 40 attempts which ended up being the second best in the Big 12 conference. He was named a member of the All-Big 12 team while picking up multiple Freshman All-American awards.
Krey played the summer of 2011 in the Cape Cod Baseball League with the Cotuit Kettleers after helping the Aggies advance to the College World Series. He played in 23 games hitting .250 with two RBI and stealing six bases.
