Archie Bradley held the Dodgers to one hit over six innings in Arizona's 6-0 victory Saturday.

Bradley did walk four and throw 112 pitches in six innings, but it was still a fine major league debut for the 22-year-old. Diamondbacks pitchers allowed just two hits on all, with Randall Delgado giving up the other in the ninth. Bradley struck out six. He'll surely be picked up in all mixed leagues in which he's available after this one, but given his control issues, he's still far from a lock to prove useful as a rookie.

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of RHP Archie Bradley from Triple-A Reno.

The Diamondbacks traded Trevor Cahill to the Braves earlier this week, which paved the way for Bradley to make the starting rotation. Things didn't go according to plan for the top prospect in 2014, but he put up a 1.61 ERA in 22 1/3 innings this spring and appears ready for the challenge. Ups and downs are to be expected, but he makes for an interesting flier in mixed fantasy leagues.
Apr 4 - 11:53 PM

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Archie Bradley will be the Diamondbacks' No. 5 starter.

The trade of Trevor Cahill opens up a spot, and Bradley will slide right into it following a spring that's seen him post a 1.61 ERA across 22 1/3 innings. The top prospect dealt with elbow issues in 2014 and put up a disappointing 4.45 ERA with 49 walks over 83 frames, but his ceiling remains that of an ace. Bradley isn't in the greatest situation in a hitter's park and on a bad team, but he's well worth a shot in all fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Thursday that Archie Bradley is still a rotation candidate.

Arizona set its season-opening starting rotation earlier this week -- Josh Collmenter, Rubby De La Rosa, Jeremy Hellickson, Chase Anderson, then Trevor Cahill -- but Bradley has pitched well enough lately to force some sudden reconsideration. "Really made the decision tough on us," Hale said Thursday afternoon. Bradley went six scoreless innings in his final start of the spring Wednesday against the Reds, wrapping up Cactus League play with a 1.61 ERA in 22 1/3 innings. The 22-year-old could be broken in as a long reliever if the D'Backs don't decide to change course.

Archie Bradley went six scoreless innings in his final start of the spring Wednesday against the Reds.

Bradley walked three, but allowed only one hit and struck out two. The young right-hander lowers his ERA to 1.61 over 22 1/3 spring innings. Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks are considering using Bradley or Robbie Ray out of the bullpen to start the season. Bradley enters the season as a consensus top-25 prospect.
Apr 1 - 6:32 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Monday that Archie Bradley is in the mix for the team's final bullpen spot.

It's hard to believe it would happen. The Diamondbacks are poised for a rebuilding year and Bradley needs to be in a rotation somewhere as he tries to revive his stock a bit after a disappointing, injury-shortened 2014. We'd be very surprised if he's not in the Triple-A rotation to start 2015, but he's a good bet to debut at some point this season.
Mar 30 - 7:16 PM

Archie Bradley delivered another strong Cactus League start in Friday's victory over the Angels, allowing one run on six hits over his five innings of work.

The hard-throwing right-hander walked one and struck out a pair on the afternoon. While he's slated to begin the season at Triple-A, he has impressed in spring play with a 2.20 ERA and 12/3 K/BB ratio across 16 1/3 innings. He should debut with the Diamondbacks at some point during the upcoming season.
Mar 27 - 7:43 PM

Archie Bradley pitched well in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Padres, giving up two earned runs over four innings.

Bradley would have gotten the second out of the fourth inning, but third baseman Jake Lamb committed a fielding error which allowed the Padres to later strike for two runs. Overall, Bradley yielded five hits, walked none, and struck out three. GM Dave Stewart recently said, "Archie, in my opinion, is not ready" which likely means Bradley opens up the season at Triple-A.
Mar 21 - 7:39 PM

Archie Bradley was hit hard in a losing effort against the Giants in Cactus League play on Sunday, allowing two runs on six hits in his three innings of work.

The hard-throwing right-hander punched out two on the afternoon without issuing a walk. While they put lots of runners on base, Bradley was able to bear down and only allow the Giants to scratch out single runs each in the second and third innings. He's considered an extreme long shot to open the season in the D'Backs rotation at this point, but he should debut at some point during the 2015 season.
Mar 15 - 9:24 PM

Diamondbacks GM Dave Stewart said Sunday that he'd like Archie Bradley to get more minor league experience.

Bradley was bothered by an elbow issue for much of the 2014 season and has struggled over the past couple of weeks in the Arizona Fall League, so maybe it's not quite time to commit to him an Opening Day rotation spot. "If I had my way I would probably have him start the [2015 season] back in the minor leagues and get more seasoning," Stewart told MLB Network Radio on Sunday morning.

Diamondbacks prospect Archie Bradley earned the victory in Saturday's Fall Stars game, hurling a pair of scoreless innings as the East topped the West squad 6-2.

Bradley has started to turn things around after getting off to a very rough start in the Arizona Fall League. Through his first 11 frames, he posted a 6.55 ERA, 2.18 WHIP and 8/7 K/BB ratio. He's still widely regarded as one of the top pitching prospects in the National League and could make a push to be included in the Diamondbacks Opening Day rotation with a strong showing in the spring.

Diamondbacks top pitching prospect Archie Bradley was knocked around in his latest Arizona Fall League start on Saturday against Mesa, surrendering seven runs (four earned) on three hits in his two-plus innings of work.

The biggest culprit for his demise in this one was a lack of command, evidenced by four free passes in his two-plus innings. He did manage to record a pair of strikeouts before departing. The 22-year-old had difficulty after a mid-season promotion to Double-A Mobile where he registered a 4.12 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 46/36 K/BB ratio over 54 2/3 innings. Until he can deliver the ball over the plate consistently, he won't be a legitimate option to join the Diamondbacks rotation.

The Diamondbacks included pitching prospect Archie Bradley on their Arizona Fall League roster, which could indicate that they don't plan on calling him up in September.

It wouldn't be unprecedented for a player to be called up in September and then also play in the AFL, but it doesn't happen often. The feeling had been that Bradley would be promoted next month to possibly be part of a six-man rotation for the D'Backs, but that might not happen now. Bradley has been limited to just 82 2/3 innings this season due to elbow issues, posting a 3.92 ERA and 75/44 K/BB ratio across 82 2/3 frames.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Thursday that the team could go to a six-man rotation in September.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic speculates that it would allow the club to add top prospect Archie Bradley to the rotation. It would also help to limit the innings for Chase Anderson, who has already set a career high with 118 1/3 frames. Bradley has posted a 3.77 ERA and 37/24 K/BB ratio across 45 1/3 innings at Double-A Mobile since returning from a flexor strain in his pitching elbow.
