The right-hander issued five free passes in the contest while striking out four. All of the damage against him came on one mighty swing of the bat from Joey Votto in the first inning.

Archie Bradley gave up only one run in six innings, surrendering six hits and three walks while fanning three, but had to settle for a no-decision in an extra-inning 2-1 victory over the Dodgers on Saturday.

It was a very encouraging outing for the former elite prospect. He has a 4.37 ERA with 69 strikeouts and 33 walks in 70 innings. Bradley has pitched much better this year than last, which is a good sign from a 23-year-old hurler. He will try to improve his 3-6 record when he takes on the Reds on Friday.
Jul 17 - 1:40 AM

Archie Bradley logged a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Giants, surrendering two runs on seven hits over his six frames.

The right-hander punched out six while walking two on the evening. All of the damage against him came in the first inning, on an RBI single by Buster Posey and a sacrifice fly by Brandon Crawford. Bradley settled in beautifully after that and was able to keep the Giants at bay for the next five innings, Madison Bumgarner was simply too good on the other side. He finishes the first half with a 3-5 record, 4.64 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and a 66/30 K/BB ratio over 64 innings.
Jul 10 - 11:04 PM

Archie Bradley gave up five runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Padres.

Bradley has taken a step forward this year after a couple of seasons with little progress, but he's not quite a mixed-league starter yet. He might get there next year. Right now, he's 3-4 with a 4.81 ERA.
Jul 5 - 2:04 AM

Archie Bradley allowed three runs in six innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Phillies.

Bradley left with a one-run lead, but it vanished soon thereafter. Bradley has had problems with walks lately, but today he issued just one, matching his season low. Unfortunately, that walk opened the game in the top of the first inning, and Peter Bourjos immediately followed with a two-run homer.
Jun 29 - 7:50 PM

Archie Bradley yielded one run in five innings Friday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

Bradley walked four and threw 94 pitches, so he didn't have any real chance of going deeper. The Diamondbacks went on to use eight relievers to get through the next four innings, yet they won 10-9 anyway. Bradley has a 3.53 ERA in six starts since rejoining the Diamondbacks a month ago, but since he still doesn't have the walks under control, he's not an every-week option in mixed leagues.
Jun 25 - 1:40 AM

Archie Bradley limited the Phillies to one (unearned) run over six innings Sunday for his third win.

It was a big bounceback outing for the 23-year-old right-hander, who had struggled on his last two turns. Bradley struck out five Phillies and scattered two walks and three hits over his six steady frames. The one run against him came on a double play groundball by Tommy Joseph in the bottom of the sixth inning. Bradley now stands 3-3 with a 4.83 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 44/20 K/BB ratio in 41 innings (seven starts) this season. He has matchup-to-matchup appeal in mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 19 - 4:29 PM

Archie Bradley was up and down in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers, striking out nine while also allowing three home runs and five total runs over 5 2/3 innings.

Three of the four hits Bradley allowed left the ballpark. Joc Pederson burned him twice, cracking solo home runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Justin Turner also clocked a solo shot in that sixth before Bradley was relieved of duty. The 23-year-old has shown off major league stuff in his first six starts, but the refinement isn't quite there yet. He will carry a 5.66 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 39/18 K/BB ratio (35 innings) into a road start against the Phillies next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 15 - 12:55 AM

Archie Bradley failed to impress in Wednesday's loss to the Rays, allowing four runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Bradley's start, as a whole, went less than smoothly. He walked four on the afternoon and served up solo home runs to Corey Dickerson and Desmond Jennings in the first and sixth innings, respectively. The lackluster outing is made all the more disappointing given that Bradley was coming off a lovely one-run, 10-strikeout performance against the Cubs in his last start. Bradley, 23, holds a 5.22 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over his first five starts (29 1/3 innings) this season. The numbers are high right now, but they should settle into themselves as he accumulates more innings. A home start against the Dodgers shows next on his schedule.
Jun 8 - 7:45 PM

Archie Bradley struck out 10 while spinning six frames of one-run ball but was saddled with a loss against the Cubs on Friday.

And the one run he was charged with wasn't really his fault, as Chris Owings misplayed a ball in center field that resulted in an Anthony Rizzo RBI double. Bradley did issue three walks, but he allowed just four hits and this was a very encouraging performance from the young right-hander. He's put up two impressive showings since getting another shot in the Diamondbacks' rotation and they'll keep rolling him out there as long as he keeps performing. He needs to be owned in mixed leagues again. Bradley takes on the Rays next week.
Jun 3 - 6:00 PM

Archie Bradley pitched into the eighth inning Sunday in the Diamondbacks' 6-3 defeat of the Padres.

Bradley gave up a run in the top of the second on a Christian Bethancourt RBI single, a run in the top of the top of the fifth on an Alexei Ramirez homer, and one more in the top of the eighth on a Wil Myers groundout. But he yielded only four total hits and one walk over 7 1/3 official frames while striking out nine. The former top prospect has been terrific this season at Triple-A Reno and might finally be ready to translate his strong minor league numbers to the major league level. There is legit fantasy upside here.
May 29 - 6:59 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Archie Bradley from Triple-A Reno.

He will start on Sunday against the Padres in place of Shelby Miller (finger). Bradley holds a 6.26 ERA over 10 starts at the major league level, but he's put up a 1.99 ERA with 47 strikeouts over 40 2/3 frames at Reno this season. With Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) also on the shelf, Bradley could stick in the rotation for a while if he pitches well. He's worth a look in deeper formats.
May 29 - 12:19 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale announced Friday that Archie Bradley will be recalled from Triple-A Reno to start in place of the injured Shelby Miller on Sunday.

Bradley has been outstanding at Triple-A this year, but has again struggled in his spot starts with the big league club. While the talent is there, he makes for a risky fantasy proposition until he shows the ability to get major league hitters out on a consistent basis.
May 27 - 6:53 PM

Archie Bradley did not make his scheduled start Thursday for Triple-A Reno.

Zack Godley got the start in his place. It looks like Bradley will make his next start in the major leagues. There's a good chance this has something to do with Shelby Miller, who has struggled all year while dealing with finger discomfort. Miller was scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Padres. Bradley has dominated in the minors this year with five wins and a 1.99 ERA. He hasn't been as successful in the majors, collecting a 7.84 ERA in two spot starts for the Diamondbacks.
May 26 - 9:32 PM

Diamondbacks RHP prospect Archie Bradley fanned nine over eight scoreless innings Saturday in a win for Triple-A Reno.

He held Omaha to three hits while throwing 68 of his 108 pitches for strikes. Bradley has done a marvelous job for Reno this year, limiting opponents to a .191 average with 47 strikeouts in 136 at-bats. He's tied for second in the Pacific Coast League with five wins and is also second in ERA (1.99). The 23-year-old has been called up to the Diamondbacks twice this year, though neither start was particularly memorable (7.84 ERA over 10 1/3 innings).
