Archie Bradley is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on his right shoulder irritation.

Bradley hit the disabled list three weeks ago with the ailment and was told that there was no structural damage, but struggled in his first minor league rehab start and didn't feel right afterwards. More will be known after the exam, but don't expect to see him back in Arizona's rotation anytime soon.

Archie Bradley has been sent to Phoenix for a reevaluation of his throwing shoulder.

Bradley allowed three earned runs in four innings Wednesday in his first rehab start with Triple-A Reno and didn't feel quite right after the outing. The 22-year-old right-hander has been on the major league disabled list since June 4 with shoulder tendinitis.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Archie Bradley (shoulder) will have to pitch well in his rehab starts to earn a rotation spot.

There's obviously nothing Bradley could do about the right shoulder tendinitis that sidelined him in early June, but the 22-year-old wasn't pitching terribly well prior to hitting the disabled list. Bradley had a 5.80 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 35 2/3 innings before the injury. Despite being in win-now mode, expect the club to be careful with its former first-round pick.

Archie Bradley (shoulder) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Reno next week.

The 22-year-old is expected to require a lengthy rehab assignment, as the Diamondbacks want to make sure he's right and won't rush him back into action. Before hitting the shelf, he owned a troublesome 5.80 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 35 2/3 innings.

Archie Bradley (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Thursday.

If it goes well, the next step for Bradley could be a minor league rehab assignment. It will likely be a lengthy one considering the 22-year-old right-hander had a 5.80 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, and 23/22 K/BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings before landing on the disabled list.

Archie Bradley (shoulder) played catch on Tuesday.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Bradley felt fine afterwards. He's still not throwing off a mound, so Bradley has some more work to do before being ready for a rehab start. Still, he's moving in the right direction after hitting the disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis in early June.
Jun 10 - 9:44 PM

Archie Bradley's MRI on his right shoulder came back negative on Thursday.

He'll take the next 2-3 days off from throwing before resuming his throwing progression. He will likely need at least one minor league rehab appearance before returning, so look for Robbie Ray to hold down his rotation spot for a couple of weeks.
Jun 4 - 11:31 PM

Diamondbacks placed RHP Archie Bradley on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis.

Bradley has been hammered in four straight starts, so this could be a phantom injury to get him some minor league work. The 22-year-old rookie stands 2-3 with a 5.80 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, and 23/22 K/BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings this season. Robbie Ray is taking his spot in the Diamondbacks' starting rotation.
Jun 4 - 1:05 PM

Archie Bradley struggled and took the loss, allowing five runs in five innings as the Diamondbacks fell 8-1 to the Braves on Monday.

The Braves rallied against Bradley in the second inning, using four singles, a double, and a walk to plate three runs. They scored two more in the fifth inning on a Freddie Freeman home run. Bradley gave up eight hits and walked three while striking out one overall on the evening. The rookie has struggled in four starts after he was hit with a line drive. He's carrying a 5.80 ERA on the year with a 1.63 WHIP and a 23/22 K/BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings. Bradley will look for better results his next time out at home against the Mets.
Jun 2 - 12:36 AM

Archie Bradley allowed six runs over 3 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

The right-hander struggled out of the gate, allowing four runs after the first six batters of the game. He allowed two more runs over his next 2 2/3 innings before exiting. Bradley's ERA and WHIP ballooned to 5.28 and 1.53, respectively, and he still hasn't won since being hit in the face by a comebacker on April 28. He'll try to get back in the win column Monday against the Braves.

Archie Bradley second start off the DL lasted longer than his first, as the pitcher allowed four runs on nine hits over five innings of work in Thursday afternoon's win over the Marlins.

Bradley managed just two innings of work in his first start (against the Phillies) after being hit by a Carlos Gonzalez liner to the head in late April, but he showed a bit more efficiency in Thursday's showdown with the Marlins. The entire thing could have been a fiasco, as Bradley loaded the bases with no outs and a run already in in the very first inning, but he managed to escape the frame allowing just a run-scoring double play and a single. Down 3-1, he pitched without much incident through the rest of his five innings. Overall, he allowed nine hits, struck out four and walked two. Bradley's a talented young pitcher, but until he's able to reign in the runners on base, it's hard to recommend him beyond keeper and NL-only formats. This season, he holds a 4.00 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and a 19/16 K/BB, numbers which he'll take into tough road action against the Cardinals.
May 21 - 3:19 PM

Archie Bradley struggled to find his form in his first start off the disabled list, walking three and allowing four runs in two innings against the Phillies on Saturday.

Bradley was making his first start since taking a Carlos Gonzalez line drive to the head on April 28. Prior to the injury, Bradley had been pitching well, with a 1.80 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 14/11 K/B ratio in 20 innings across four starts. He labored through two innings in his return, though, throwing 58 pitches and walking three. Jeff Francoeur hit a solo home run off Bradley in the second, while Ryan Howard and Chase Utley had RBI singles in the third. Bradley will probably need another start or two to get back into the swing of things. He faces the Marlins in his next start.
May 16 - 11:39 PM

Diamondbacks activated RHP Archie Bradley from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll rejoin the D'Backs rotation as scheduled on Saturday against the Phillies. Before taking a line drive off of his head, the right-hander posted a stellar 1.80 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 14/11 K/BB ratio over 20 innings in his first four starts.
May 16 - 9:55 AM

Archie Bradley (head) has officially been cleared to rejoin the rotation on Saturday against the Phillies.

Bradley gained clearance after getting through a simulated game on Monday with no issues. He even had a ball hit back up the middle against him and didn't flinch, which is obviously notable given how he was injured. The young right-hander boasts a 1.80 ERA over four starts this season.
