While Paul Goldschmidt is garnering a lot of attention in regards to the National League MVP race, he isn’t the only player in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization being considered for Player of the Year honors.

This week, USA Today named D-backs prospect Archie Bradley as one of five finalists for its Minor League Player of the Year Award.

Throwing for Single-A Visalia and Double-A Mobile in 2013, Bradley, a first-round draft pick by Arizona in 2011, has combined to go 11-5 with a 1.84 ERA and 150 strikeouts.

Joining the 21-year-old right-hander on USA Today’s list of finalists are shortstop Xander Bogaerts (Boston Red Sox), outfielder Byron Buxton (Minnesota Twins), third baseman Miguel Sano (Minnesota Twins) and outfielder George Springer (Houston Astros).

Each member of the USA Today baseball staff will get one vote, but fans can also cast their ballot here through Aug. 21.
