Archie Bradley's workload will be limited at some point this season.
He's thrown 145 2/3 innings so far between the majors and minors, which is 6 1/3 frames shy of his professional high that was set in 2013. Bradley threw less than 170 innings combined the last two seasons due to elbow and shoulder issues, and the Diamondbacks are still trying to determine how to cut back on the young right-hander's workload. They could skip some of his starts or just shut him down at some point before the end of the season. Bradley has posted a 5.06 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in an up-and-down 2016. Aug 26 - 9:31 AM

Archie Bradley allowed three runs on seven hits over five innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Braves.

Bradley fanned seven and walked three on the evening. Two of the three runs on his line scored in the first inning courtesy of an RBI single by Nick Markakis and an RBI double by Tyler Flowers. The final run would come home on Matt Kemp's sacrifice fly in the fourth. For the season, the 24-year-old right-hander owns a rocky 5.06 ERA and 1.57 WHIP. A home start against the Reds shows next on his schedule.
Aug 24 - 1:36 AM

Archie Bradley had a rough go of it in Thursday's no-decision against the Padres, yielding five runs (four runs) on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Bradley has now failed to make it to the sixth inning in three of his last four starts. On Thursday, he allowed one run in the first on an RBI groundout by Yangervis Solarte, but it was the third inning which truly set him back. The 24-year-old right-hander allowed three runs on a pair of RBI singles, with Jean Segura making a fielding error to score the unearned run on Bradley's line. It has been that kind of year for Bradley, who will carry a 5.04 ERA and 1.55 WHIP into a home start against the Braves next time out.
Aug 19 - 2:13 AM

Archie Bradley allowed six runs -- four earned -- over 5 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

Bradley was somehow worse than Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, which has been a feat for any pitcher this season. The 24-year-old surrendered seven hits, including two home runs, and walked two while striking out four. The loss dropped Bradley to 4-8 with a 4.91 ERA and 1.52 WHIP through 17 starts this year. The right-hander has a softer date with the Padres on tap for Thursday.
Aug 13 - 11:29 PM

Archie Bradley had to settle for a no-decision on Sunday afternoon as he failed to make it out of the fifth inning, allowing three runs on three hits in 4 2/3 innings.

The young right-hander racked up eight strikeouts on the day while walking three, but needed 116 pitches to get through 4 2/3 innings and had to be lifted one out shy of qualifying for a victory. He'll look to improve upon a 4.80 ERA and 1.51 WHIP when he takes on the Red Sox in Boston on Saturday.
Aug 7 - 9:07 PM

Archie Bradley was annihilated in Monday's loss to the Nationals, coughing up eight runs (seven earned) on 12 hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Oh dear. Half the runs on Bradley's line scored in the first inning, with Wilson Ramos, Clint Robinson and Danny Espinosa all notching RBI singles in the frame. The Nationals would go on to score twice in the second and twice in the fourth before the nightmare was over. That bombardment pushed Bradley's ERA from 4.17 to 4.75. He will try to ease the swelling in a home start against the Brewers next time he takes to the mound.
Aug 2 - 1:12 AM

Archie Bradley struck out six over seven innings of one-run ball, defeating the Brewers to earn his fifth victory of the season on Wednesday.

The young right-hander struck out six, walked three and scattered four hits on the night. The only damage against him came on a sacrifice fly by Hernan Perez in his final inning of work. He'll look to carry the momentum over from this fine outing when he takes on the Nationals at home on Monday.
Jul 27 - 11:20 PM

Archie Bradley struggled with his command in Friday's loss to the Reds, allowing three runs on five hits over five innings.

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. Bradley will head into Wednesday's start against the Brewers in Milwaukee looking to improve upon a 4.44 ERA and 1.45 WHIP.
Jul 22 - 11:21 PM

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.
