Archie Bradley struggled in his spot start Monday, giving up five runs in 4 1/3 innings against the Giants.

It took Bradley 105 pitches to get his 13 outs, and he walked four along the way. He'll be sent back to Triple-A now, with a fresh arm coming up to replace him.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Archie Bradley from Triple-A Reno.

The Diamondbacks' relief corps is beat up after throwing 12 innings during Saturday's extra-innings loss to the Padres. Bradley will provide length out of the bullpen. The young righty had a 4.05 ERA and 9/5 K/BB ratio over his first 6 2/3 innings for Reno.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers had discussions this offseason with the Diamondbacks involving Archie Bradley.

Grant says the talks revolved around Shawn Tolleson or Keone Kela being sent to the D'Backs. It sounds like it may have been something that happened a while ago and doesn't have much traction anymore, but it's certainly noteworthy nonetheless. The Rangers are looking to add a starter prior to Opening Day.

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Archie Bradley to Triple-A Reno.

Bradley posted a 9.00 ERA and 9/5 K/BB ratio in 10 innings over four appearances (two starts) this spring. That's not so good, but his velocity was encouraging. The 23-year-old isn't too far removed from being considered one of the top pitching prospects in the game, so there's still some hope for him. The big key is staying healthy, whether it's in the minors or the majors.

Archie Bradley imploded against the Cubs, allowing five hits, six runs and three walks in 2 1/3 innings on Thursday.

This one couldn’t have gone much worse for Bradley. The Cubs sent eight men to the plate in the first inning, scoring five times with two runs coming across on a home run by Jorge Soler. Bradley retired the Cubs in order in the second but unraveled again in the third by allowing three of four batters to reach base. This outing won’t help Bradley’s chances of winning a spot in Arizona’s starting rotation.
Mar 17 - 10:52 PM

Archie Bradley allowed one run over three innings, and the Diamondbacks topped the Giants 9-5 on Saturday.

Bradley started one half of a split-squad day for the D'backs, giving up three hits and a walk while striking out one. He owns a 4.70 ERA this spring in a bid for a starting rotation spot with the club. If he fails to do so, Bradley will likely be sent to Triple-A to continue starting until his number is called.

Archie Bradley delivered two scoreless innings in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Rockies.

Bradley issued one walk, but he retired the other six batters he faced -- two via strikeout. Most importantly, his fastball velocity readings were in the 94-96 mph range. The former top prospect missed a ton of time last season with a shoulder injury, finishing with a 5.80 ERA in eight starts at the major league level. Maybe he can get it all clicking in 2016.
Mar 2 - 6:37 PM

Jack Magruder of reports that the Diamondbacks are unlikely to trade Archie Bradley.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News of the Dallas Morning News reported earlier Wednesday that the Diamondbacks were going to meet with the Rangers to discuss pitching. The two sides have at least talked about relievers, but Magruder hears that Bradley is unlikely to be moved after Aaron Blair was shipped to the Braves in the Shelby Miller trade.

Archie Bradley is not expected to be promoted this month.

"(Dave Stewart) and Tony (La Russa) haven’t really talked about anybody else coming up," Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. "I know we have a couple of other guys, when their seasons end, but I haven’t heard about Archie at all." It looks like a second straight disappointing season for Bradley, as he surprisingly made the Opening Day rotation and got off to a nice start, only to wind up with a 5.80 ERA over eight outings while missing lots of time with a shoulder issue. The good news is Bradley just turned 23 and has plenty of time to right the ship.

Diamondbacks activated RHP Archie Bradley from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Reno.

Bradley is recovered from his right shoulder inflammation, but the surging Diamondbacks want him to post some better results on the farm before they give him another shot in the major leagues. The 23-year-old right-hander holds a 5.80 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in eight starts this season with Arizona. He hasn't made a start for the Diamondbacks since June 1.

Archie Bradley racked up six strikeouts over four innings in his latest rehab start with High-A Visalia on Sunday.

Bradley surrendered four runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk. He continues to work his way back from right shoulder inflammation that has sidelined him since early June. He will still need at least another couple of rehab starts before he's ready to rejoin the D'Backs in any capacity.

Archie Bradley (shoulder) will make his next rehab start at High-A Visalia on Sunday.

Bradley worked four scoreless innings in the instructional league on Tuesday. He has been sidelined since early June due to inflammation in his right shoulder but is finally making tangible progress towards a return to the D'Backs rotation.

Archie Bradley (shoulder) threw a simulated game last Wednesday.

He's been throwing off a mound for a few weeks, but Bradley will not make it back to the Diamondbacks before the end of the month. The young right-hander has been on the shelf since early June due to inflammation in his right shoulder.
Sun, Aug 16, 2015 01:23:00 PM

Archie Bradley (shoulder) has resumed throwing and is close to appearing in a simulated game.

Bradley has been shut down since early June due to inflammation in his right shoulder. He's still a couple of weeks away from a potential return to the Diamondbacks, and it's unclear if he'll return to a rotation spot, or be used out of the bullpen for the remainder of the season.
