Braden Shipley surrendered three earned runs over just 3 1/3 innings Wednesday in a spot start against the Giants.
He was starting in place of Zack Greinke, who is being reserved for next week's National League Wild Card Game. Shipley gave up four hits and walked two in an ugly and abbreviated performance, but Arizona rallied in the bottom of the ninth inning to steal a 4-3 victory. Shipley, who now holds a 5.76 ERA and 1.84 WHIP in 25 total innings this year, probably won't be included in the Diamondbacks' postseason plans. Sep 27 - 7:10 PM

Braden Shipley will make a spot start for the Diamondbacks on Wednesday versus the Giants.

That was supposed to be Zack Greinke's final regular-season start, but he has been pushed to Friday so that he is on normal rest for the National League Wild Card Game on October 4. Shipley holds a 5.40 ERA and 1.85 WHIP in 21 2/3 innings (two starts, seven relief appearances) this season with Arizona.

The D'Backs wanted a fresh arm after overworking their bullpen in Saturday's loss to Minnesota. Shipley will probably see action in Sunday's series finale, particularly with T.J. McFarland getting the start. The right-hander has posted a 6.13 ERA in four outings including two starts at the major league level this year.

Diamondbacks recalled Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

He'll start Sunday in Miami. Shipley hopes to get a little more offensive support than his team did on Saturday, as the Snakes were no-hit by Edinson Volquez at Marlins Park.

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Braden Shipley to Triple-A Reno.

Shipley's rotation audition lasted just one turn, as he allowed three runs and walked six in four-plus innings Thursday in a loss to the Nationals. With the D'Backs appearing to want to keep Archie Bradley in the bullpen, they might turn to Zack Godley next.
May 5 - 5:29 PM

Braden Shipley surrendered three runs and walked six in four-plus innings Thursday in a loss to the Nationals.

Shipley's velocity has been up, but that doesn't matter much when he's throwing just 49 of 92 pitches for strikes. The Diamondbacks intended to give him a chance to stick in the rotation, but today's very shaky showing -- on top of his 1.68 WHIP in Triple-A -- could cause them to change directions.
May 4 - 5:04 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

Shipley will start for the Diamondbacks on Thursday afternoon against the Nationals and could be up for good if things go well. The former top prospect has regained some zip on his fastball but was sporting an underwhelming 4.18 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and 20/8 K/BB ratio through 28 innings (five starts) this season with Reno. He's not a recommended fantasy streaming option.
May 4 - 10:19 AM

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Braden Shipley to Triple-A Reno.

One of the team's top pitching prospects, Shipley made 11 starts for the D'Backs last season but didn't really have much of a chance to land a rotation spot to start 2017. He holds a 4.26 ERA over 6 1/3 innings this spring.
Mar 20 - 5:09 PM

Braden Shipley gave up three earned runs in 1 2/3 innings Sunday in his spring debut against the Rockies.

Charlie Blackmon led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot and then Shipley was charged with two more runs in the bottom of the second. The 25-year-old right-hander is not assured of a 25-man roster spot leading into the 2017 season after posting a 5.27 ERA and 1.54 WHIP over his first 70 major league innings with Arizona in 2016.
