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.

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.
May 11 - 7:36 PM

Archie Bradley (head) remains on track to rejoin the Diamondbacks' rotation on May 16 versus the Phillies.

Bradley has already thrown a couple bullpen sessions and will throw a simulated game on Monday. "As far as keeping my body in shape, I feel like I'm right on track," Bradley said. "I only missed two days of throwing and then once I started playing catch, I threw a bullpen the next day with no issues at all. So I feel arm-wise, I'm up to speed on where I need to be."
May 8 - 8:49 AM

Archie Bradley (head) threw a bullpen session with no issues on Monday.

Bradley remains on target to rejoin the rotation when first eligible on May 15. The young right-hander is making his way back from a right sinus fracture which was the result of a line drive that struck him in the face.
May 4 - 10:57 PM

Archie Bradley (head) is scheduled to throw a side session on Saturday.

If all goes well and his swelling continues to subside, he could rejoin the Diamondbacks rotation as soon as he's first eligible on May 15. It's very encouraging news after Bradley was hit in the side of his face by a Carlos Gonzalez line drive earlier in the week.
May 1 - 10:39 PM

Diamondbacks placed RHP Archie Bradley on the 15-day disabled list with a head injury.

Things could have turned out much worse for Bradley after he was hit in the right side of his face by a Carlos Gonzalez line drive on Tuesday. The young right-hander suffered no facial fractures and displayed no concussion symptoms, so it appears he's in line for a minimal stay on the disabled list. Enrique Burgos has taken his spot on the roster.

Archie Bradley was found to have no concussion symptoms and having suffered no facial fractures after being examined at an Arizona hospital.

Bradley has a huge welt on the right side of his face and is still going to require a trip to the disabled list, but he's lucky it wasn't much worse, all things considered. He was even able to return to Chase Field after the visit to the hospital to congratulate his teammates on their victory over the Rockies. Vidal Nuño and Robbie Ray are candidates to replace Bradley in the rotation.
Apr 29 - 8:32 AM

Archie Bradley got a no-decision in an injury-shortened start as the Diamondbacks won 12-5 over the Rockies on Tuesday.

The results don't matter much with the concern over Bradley's injury. He took a Carlos Gonzalez line drive to the face in the second inning. Nick Piecoro reported on Twitter that Bradley returned to the ballpark after going to the hospital for tests, which is a good sign. The right-hander gave up a run on two hits with two strikeouts over 1 1/3 innings. Bradley, if he's able to make his next start, will bring a 1.80 ERA into a start at Coors Field against the Rockies.
Apr 29 - 1:09 AM

Archie Bradley had to exit Tuesday's start versus the Rockies in the second inning after being hit in the head with a line drive.

Bradley went down immediately after being struck by the Carlos Gonzalez screamer in the right side of his face. He eventually was able to get to his feet and walked off the field under his own power, even giving the fans at Chase Field a thumbs-up. Bradley will almost surely be sent for X-rays and go through concussion tests, at which point more will be known about his status.
Apr 28 - 10:11 PM

Archie Bradley pitched six innings of one-run ball in Wednesday's win over the Rangers.

Bradley only allowed two hits, but a slew of early walks pumped up his pitch-count and prevented him from seeing the later innings. Things started off strangely for the pitcher. After recording two outs in the first inning, he walked a pair of batters, hit Shin-Soo Choo with a pitch to load the bases, then issued a free pass to Robinson Chirinos to force in a run. And that would be all the Rangers could manage against the youngster. While Bradley has not allowed more than two runs in any of his three starts, his control issues (he's walked 11 over 18 2/3 innings and threw just 49 of his 92 pitches for strikes on Wednesday) limit his current value in mixed leagues. Bradley will try to nip the strike zone more frequently when he faces the Rockies next time out.
Apr 23 - 1:21 AM

Archie Bradley surrendered a pair of runs across 6 2/3 innings in Thursday's no-decision win versus the Giants.

He struck out four, walked two and surrendered four hits. Bradley outdueled Clayton Kershaw in his debut and acquitted himself well against the defending champs in his second outing. He has a 1.42 ERA across two trips. Bradley will go for three straight quality starts to begin his career next week against the Rangers.
Apr 17 - 2:44 AM

Archie Bradley held the Dodgers to one hit over six innings in Arizona's 6-0 victory Saturday.

Bradley did walk four and throw 112 pitches in six innings, but it was still a fine major league debut for the 22-year-old. Diamondbacks pitchers allowed just two hits on all, with Randall Delgado giving up the other in the ninth. Bradley struck out six. He'll surely be picked up in all mixed leagues in which he's available after this one, but given his control issues, he's still far from a lock to prove useful as a rookie.
Apr 12 - 2:33 AM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of RHP Archie Bradley from Triple-A Reno.

The Diamondbacks traded Trevor Cahill to the Braves earlier this week, which paved the way for Bradley to make the starting rotation. Things didn't go according to plan for the top prospect in 2014, but he put up a 1.61 ERA in 22 1/3 innings this spring and appears ready for the challenge. Ups and downs are to be expected, but he makes for an interesting flier in mixed fantasy leagues.
