According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, lefty Zach Braddock is working out for the Dodgers on Monday.

Padres released LHP Zach Braddock.

Braddock has only made 10 appearances over the last two seasons, and those games in independent ball. The 26-year-old used to be an intriguing lefty bullpen arm but is looking like a lost cause at this point.

Padres signed LHP Zach Braddock to a minor league deal.

The 26-year-old southpaw appeared in 71 games during the 2010-2011 seasons with the Brewers but hasn't made it back to the show since. He finished the 2013 campaign with Lancaster in the Independent Atlantic League, where he posted a troublesome 12.71 ERA, 2.47 WHIP and 8/8 K/BB ratio in 5 2/3 innings. He's merely organizational fodder for the time being.

Orioles released LHP Zach Braddock.

Braddock signed a minor league deal with the Orioles over the winter, but was on the disabled list with Triple-A Norfolk and never appeared in a game. The 25-year-old left-hander underwent surgery last July to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder.

Zach Braddock (shoulder) began a throwing program last month but is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day.

Braddock underwent major surgery last July to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. "With these kinds of things you plan for whatever is going to happen and err on the side of caution," the 25-year-old southpaw said Thursday in Orioles camp. "I think the team and I both expect to just progress as smooth as we can."

Orioles signed LHP Zach Braddock to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Braddock hasn't appeared in the major leagues since 2011, when he posted a 7.27 ERA in 17 1/3 innings for the Brewers. The 25-year-old southpaw will be looking to get his career back on the right track with the Orioles.

Brewers released LHP Zach Braddock.

Braddock has a big arm, but he had problems with a sleep disorder last year and has also dealt with personal issues. Still, as a lefty that throws in the mid-90s, someone will be willing to take a chance on him.

Zach Braddock was placed on the temporary inactive list with Triple-A Nashville.

Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash refused to comment, but Braddock was placed on the inactive list last year while dealing with a sleep disorder. The 24-year-old southpaw has yet to make an appearance with Triple-A Nashville this season.

Zach Braddock didn't pitch Monday against the Rangers due to a quad strain.

This is apparently not related to his absence on Sunday. Braddock, who was limited to just 17 1/3 innings at the major league level last year due to a sleep disorder and personal issues, has allowed three runs on four hits and four walks over three innings this spring. He is likely to begin the season in the minors.

Zach Braddock didn't dress for the Brewers on Sunday and assistant general manager Gord Ash said he couldn't comment on the situation.

Zach Braddock was send home from Brewers' camp on Wednesday due to illness.

The Brewers naturally didn't want the rest of the clubhouse getting sick, but he should be back with the club in the next couple of days. Braddock posted a 7.27 ERA and an 18/11 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings in 2011 while dealing with a sleep disorder and personal issues.

Zach Braddock said Monday that he looks forward to competing for a bullpen spot after dealing with a sleep disorder and personal issues last year.

Braddock had a 7.27 ERA and an 18/11 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings last season and didn't throw another pitch after being placed on the inactive list in July. "I feel great," said Braddock. "I just had to take some time and address things. I went to Triple-A for a little bit, then I did shut it down and concentrated on some personal things." Braddock had a 2.94 ERA over 46 relief appearances during his rookie campaign in 2010, but he would likely need a very strong spring to win a spot on the Opening Day roster.

Zach Braddock was placed on the inactive list with Triple-A Nashville due to more problems with his sleep disorder.

"All I can say is that he is undergoing treatment for previously diagnosed issues," said Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash. The left-hander missed about a month earlier this season due to the sleep disorder and was demoted last month after being late on multiple occasions. There's no timetable for his return.

Brewers optioned LHP Zach Braddock to Triple-A Nashville.

Braddock posted a 19.80 in eight games since being recalled from Nashville in late June, though it's not clear if his sleep disorder was an issue this time around. He's a talented lefty and should be back at some point.
