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. Nov 10 - 9:15 AM

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.
Aug 14 - 6:54 PM

Diamondbacks right-handed pitching prospect Archie Bradley allowed five hits, three walks, two hit batsman, and seven runs over 2 2/3 innings for Double-A Mobile on Friday.

Bradley only allowed five hits, but two were doubles and one was a home run. Bradley was dominating Double-A hitters, but his most recent start can be called a "clunker." The Diamondbacks have begun to sell off pieces, and Bradley could see time in Arizona before the end of the year.
Jul 26 - 11:40 AM

Diamondbacks prospect right-hander Archie Bradley struck out 10 over seven innings for Double-A Mobile on Saturday, scattering two hits and one walk while allowing two runs.

Bradley had his first dominating performance of the season, and could be nearing a return to Triple-A Reno, or Arizona if the Diamondbacks front office wants to keep him out of the PCL and thinks he's ready for the bright lights of the majors. Despite his struggles and an injury, Bradley has remained one of the top pitching prospects in baseball, and has the potential to be a true ace at the top of Arizona's pitching rotation.
Jul 20 - 12:45 PM

Diamondbacks right-handed pitching prospect Archie Bradley struck out five over 5 2/3 innings for Double-A Mobile on Saturday, allowing three hits, four walks, and one run.

Bradley has pitched well, though not spectacularly, for the Mobile BayBears over four starts. Logically, Bradley should return to Triple-A Reno before making his major league debut, but the Diamondbacks front office may want to keep him out of the hitter-haven that is Reno and the Pacific Coast League. His timetable is unclear, but his prospect status has not been affected in any appreciable amount.
Jul 13 - 11:55 AM

Diamondbacks RHP Archie Bradley gave up one run on four hits over 5 1/3 innings Sunday for Double-A Mobile.

He stuck out three batters and walked a pair in the outing, which arguably was his best since coming off the disabled list (elbow) in mid-June. Bradley, 21, owns a 1.42 ERA in 12 2/3 innings over three starts at Mobile, but the highly touted right-hander has struggled with his control to the tune nine walks and four strikeouts during that span. Bradley should return to Triple-A Reno, where he began the season, once he makes improvements on that front, which would put him on schedule for a late-season debut with the Diamondbacks.
Jul 7 - 12:13 PM

Diamondbacks prospect RHP Archie Bradley (elbow) allowed one earned run on three hits and four walks Thursday in four innings for Double-A Mobile.

He struck out only one batter in the outing, which was his second -- the first came in the Rookie-level Arizona League -- since coming off the minor league disabled list. Though Bradley, 21, was rusty on Thursday, he's expected to return to Triple-A Reno in the near future and should still reach the major leagues this season so long as the elbow injury is no longer an issue.
Jun 27 - 2:02 PM

Diamondbacks pitching prospect Archie Bradley's (elbow) next start will come with Double-A Mobile.

Working his way back from a mild flexor strain in his pitching elbow, Bradley made his first start in a month over the weekend when he tossed four innings for the D'Backs Rookie-level Arizona League club. He'll surely move back up to Triple-A Reno shortly and eventually to the majors as long as he doesn't have a setback.
Jun 24 - 7:07 PM

Diamondbacks right-handed pitching prospect Archie Bradley (elbow) struck out six over four innings in his first competitive game in nearly a month on Saturday.

Bradley allowed three singles, a double, a triple, and a walk in the Rookie-level Arizona League. He faced a solid lineup for the AZL Cubs that included former top international picks Gleyber Torres and Eloy Jimenez making their US debuts, as well as rehabbing prospect Jorge Soler. If all goes well, Bradley could be in the major leagues by mid-July.
Jun 22 - 10:52 AM

Diamondbacks pitching prospect Archie Bradley (elbow) struck out three while allowing one run over three innings in a rookie league exhibition game Monday.

Bradley was reportedly clocked at 93 mph in what was the top prospect's first game action since late April, when he was diagnosed with a mild flexor strain in his pitching elbow. The righty will make one more appearance in rookie ball before returning to a full-season club.
Jun 16 - 11:37 PM

Diamondbacks farm director Mike Bell said Tuesday that pitching prospect Archie Bradley (elbow) "should be ready to go probably the last week in June."

"That's kind of what we have our sights set on," Bell added. "We'll let how he's feeling dictate what we do. I think everybody feels pretty confident with how he's doing." Bradley hasn't pitched since April 26 due to a mild flexor strain in his pitching elbow. He'll need at least a handful of starts before becoming an option for the big league club, so don't count on seeing Bradley promoted before the second half. He held a 5.18 ERA over his first five starts for Triple-A Reno before going down with the injury.
Jun 4 - 8:30 AM

Diamondbacks pitching prospect Archie Bradley will be examined soon to determine when he can resume throwing.

Bradley has been shut down since late April after being diagnosed with a mild flexor strain in his pitching elbow. Manager Kirk Gibson noted on Tuesday that the top prospect is feeling much better and it sounds like a return to throwing isn't far off. Obviously, the club will proceed cautiously with the prized right-hander.
