There are 40 days between the first day of the 2015 MLS playoffs on October 28 and the MLS championship on December 6. Orlando City may not be in the playoffs this year, but I thought it would be a good opportunity to reflect on the year that was 2015 and the highs and lows. In addition, I'll be including my evaluation of each player from the first team roster.
Day 7: Adam Bedell 2015 in Review
Over the next few days, I'll review the season statistics for each player on the 2015 Orlando City first team. We'll look at some key metrics, key moments, and my expectations for 2016. These posts are in alphabetical order, so next up is Adam Bedell.

2015 Summary: Adam Bedell was acquired mid-season in a trade from Columbus. But after joining Orlando City he saw zero minutes and I don't even recall if he was ever in one of the 18-man lineups. He's very tall for a non-keeper, clocking in at 6-feet 7-inches, and that's about all that Orlando City fans got to know about him since he didn't see any action on the pitch.
2016 Prediction: I think Bedell is likely a good candidate to appear with OCB next season. If he was not good enough to take playing time from some of the teenage players who made appearances for the first team throughout the year, he's likely not going to crack the lineup after they move some of those youngsters down to the new USL side. And if Bedell is not on OCB, I'd expect to see him be traded to another team or just be out of the league altogether.
What about you? Do you expect to see Bedell back with the first team next year and making a contribution? Weigh in with your thoughts in the comments below!
