Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo has considered moving Archie Bradley to the starting rotation.
Bradley has been a starter for his most of his career but has thrived out of the pen this year, registering a 1.26 ERA over 14 1/3 innings. The Diamondbacks are looking to replace Shelby Miller, who could be headed for Tommy John surgery after being diagnosed with a torn UCL in his pitching elbow. Bradley is 10-12 with a 5.18 ERA over 34 major league starts. Apr 27 - 7:38 PM

Archie Bradley (flu) will be available for Saturday's game against the Indians.

Bradley hadn't pitched since logging 3 1/3 scoreless innings in Tuesday's loss to the Giants. He came down with the flu on Wednesday but is now symptom-free. The plan is for Bradley to fill a long/middle relief role for the D'Backs this year.
Apr 8 - 7:21 PM

Archie Bradley excelled out of the pen Tuesday, striking out seven in 3 1/3 scoreless innings against the Giants.

Bradley entered down 8-2, so there wasn't much pressure on him tonight. Still, it was nice to see him hit 98 mph on the gun a couple of times and remain around the zone for the most part. He'll get another chance to start at some point if he remains sharp in middle relief.
Apr 5 - 1:31 AM

Archie Bradley will begin the season as a long reliever.

Bradley has pitched well of late this spring but wasn't going to make the rotation. However, he'll at least get to be part of the big league club even if it's basically in a mop-up role. Zack Greinke, Patrick Corbin, Taijuan Walker, Robbie Ray and Shelby Miller will form the Diamondbacks' rotation.
Mar 24 - 3:47 PM

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic writes that the Diamondbacks "appear to be at least considering" using Archie Bradley as a reliever.

There's simply not room for him in the rotation. Bradley got off to a poor start this spring but has been terrific the last three times out, which includes five shutout innings with just one hit allowed in a minor league game Wednesday. "With the way I’m throwing the baseball right now, the way I feel, the way the ball is coming out, I’m comfortable in any role, in any capacity," Bradley said. "Just put me on this team."

Archie Bradley spun five innings of one-run ball against the Athletics on Friday.

The only damage was a solo homer off the bat of Ryon Healy in the bottom of the fourth inning. Bradley gave up five hits in all while walking none and striking out a pair. The outing was a nice step forward for the 24-year-old, but he still appears to be on the outside looking in for a rotation spot.
Mar 17 - 7:16 PM

Archie Bradley allowed three runs -- one earned -- over four innings Thursday in a Cactus League start against the Giants.

Bradley committed a throwing error that set off the Giants' three-run second inning. The young right-hander is probably going to be ticketed for Triple-A Reno out of camp this spring, but he'll be up at some point.
Mar 12 - 5:29 PM

Archie Bradley was beat up for six earned runs in 1 1/3 innings of relief Tuesday in the Diamondbacks' Cactus League loss to the Athletics.

Shelby Miller got the rout started by yielding six earned runs over the first three innings of the game. And then Bradley kept it going with his brutal showing in the fifth and sixth. Arizona has tried desperately to fix its pitching situation, but that might be too tall of a task. Bradley projects to open the year at Triple-A Reno.
Mar 7 - 7:00 PM

Archie Bradley struck out four batters while hurling three shutout innings against the Padres on Thursday.

He gave up two hits and no walks. It was a dominant second start for Bradley following a nightmare first outing that saw him allow five runs in 1 1/3 innings. He started 26 games for the Diamondbacks last year as a rookie, finishing with an 8-9 record and a 5.02 ERA. His 143 strikeouts in 141 2/3 innings hint at better things to come.
Mar 2 - 9:55 PM

Archie Bradley punched out 11 batters and gave up two runs in seven innings to beat the Padres 9-5 on Saturday.

Most impressively he did it without walking anyone. Bases-on-balls have been Bradley's bugaboo throughout his professional career but he kept that in check tonight. The 24-year-old rookie struck out more than a batter per inning this year and has top-of-the-rotation upside if he can harness his control. He ends the season with an 8-9 record and a 5.02 ERA in 26 starts. He fanned 143 batters and walked 67 in 141 2/3 innings.

Archie Bradley coughed up four runs over 3 2/3 frames but escaped with a no-decision in Monday's 14-4 win over the Nationals.

Bradley managed to record five strikeouts, but he gave up six hits and walked four batters, needing a whopping 97 pitches over his 3 2/3 innings. The D'Backs bullpen took it from there and yielded only three baserunners across 5 1/3 scoreless frames the rest of the way. Bradley will conclude his uneven season this weekend versus the Padres.
Mon, Sep 26, 2016 11:55:00 PM

Archie Bradley surrendered two runs on two hits over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

Bradley struck out seven and walked three on the evening, finishing out his five innings of work having thrown 96 pitches (59 strikes). The 24-year-old right-hander has pitched to an uncomfortable 5.02 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 127/63 K/BB ratio over 136 innings. A road showdown with the Nationals shows next on his schedule.

Archie Bradley turned in a quality start in Thursday's win over the Dodgers, allowing three runs on nine hits over six-plus innings.

Bradley struck out seven and walked two on the evening. He finished his six-plus innings of work having thrown 88 pitches (64 strikes). For the season as a whole, the 24-year-old right-hander owns an unsightly 5.07 ERA and 1.58 WHIP over 126 innings. He will try to drop the ERA under 5.00 in a road start against the Padres next time he toes the rubber.

Archie Bradley coughed up five runs in only three innings of work against the Giants on Saturday.

He made it through the first inning unscathed and gave up one run in the second before the floodgates opened in the third. He did manage to strike out three batters in his three innings but he allowed a whopping 10 baserunners. His record falls to 6-9 with a 5.10 ERA in 22 starts. He has fanned 113 batters in 120 innings, which is good. But the 58 walks are a problem he needs to fix if he is ever going to live up to his lofty pedigree as an elite prospect.
Sat, Sep 10, 2016 11:57:00 PM

Archie Bradley racked up six strikeouts over six innings of two-run ball in Sunday's victory over the Rockies.

It's not easy for a hurler to go into Coors Field and dominate, but that's just what Bradley did on Sunday. He allowed just six hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. He'll look to carry over this fine performance when he takes on the Giants on Saturday at home.
