Making his return to the rotation, Braden Shipley allowed three runs -- two earned -- over four innings Monday against the Padres.
Shipley made his previous two appearances in long relief after Rubby De La Rosa's brief starts. He's been thoroughly unimpressive of late, giving up 14 earned runs and 28 hits in 17 1/3 innings this month. His stuff just isn't what it was a couple of years ago, and his upside seems fairly limited at this point. Sep 20 - 1:24 AM

Braden Shipley was charged with four runs in 5 2/3 innings but that was good enough to snare a win in the Diamondbacks' 9-4 victory over the Rockies on Saturday.

He gave up eight hits but only one walk against three punchouts. He yielded home runs to Gerardo Parra and Daniel Descalso but they weren't enough to overcome the big lead Diamondbacks' hitters gifted him with. Shipley has struggled to miss bats this year, fanning just 26 batters while issuing 19 free passes in 47 1/3 innings. He will take his 3-3 record and 4.94 ERA into a home start versus the Giants on Friday.
Sep 3 - 11:53 PM

Braden Shipley pitched seven innings of one-run ball Friday against the Reds.

Shipley had the nice night despite walking four and striking out just one. He's made seven big-league starts now. In the four good ones, he's allowed a total of three runs. In the other three, he's given up 20 runs in 15 2/3 innings. He's still too risky to be considered in fantasy leagues.

Braden Shipley was crushed in Sunday's loss to the Padres, surrendering seven runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

The rookie right-hander punched out five on the afternoon while walking only one. The Padres victimized him with a pair of long balls in the contest, Travis Jankowski belting a two-run shot in the third inning and Alex Dickerson adding a solo shot in the sixth. It's the second straight brutal outing for Shipley who now owns a troublesome 5.45 ERA and 1.47 WHIP on the season. He'll take on the Reds his next time out at home on Friday.
Aug 21 - 7:25 PM

Braden Shipley struggled in Tuesday's loss to the Mets, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on 10 hits over five-plus innings.

Shipley blanked the Mets over seven frames last time out, but the story was a far different one on Tuesday. He failed to strike out a batter on the evening, with the Metropolitans striking for four runs in the fifth inning and three runs in the sixth. Through five starts, the 24-year-old right-hander holds a 4.30 ERA and 1.47 WHIP. The overall numbers might not look great, but 13 of the 15 runs he has allowed have scored in just two starts. He has pitched well outside of those outings. He will try to rebound from Tuesday's mess in a scheduled road date with the Padres this weekend.
Aug 17 - 1:09 AM

Braden Shipley allowed just three hits over seven innings in the Diamondbacks' 9-0 shutout of the Mets on Thursday.

Shutting down the Mets isn't a particularly notable feat right now, but Shipley still deserves some credit. He needed just 78 pitches to get through seven with seven strikeouts and one walk. If the Diamondbacks weren't trying to watch his innings, he would have had a pretty good shot at a complete-game shutout today. Shipley is scheduled to face the Mets at home and the Padres in San Diego next week, making him a very intriguing streaming option.
Aug 11 - 3:39 PM

Braden Shipley allowed two runs over six-plus innings Friday in a no-decision against the Brewers.

Shipley walked six and threw just 53 of his 102 pitches for strikes, but he was able to keep the Diamondbacks in the game. In fact, he allowed just one run over six innings before he was sent back out in the seventh. He gave up a homer to Keon Broxton and was pulled immediately.
Aug 6 - 1:50 AM

Braden Shipley shut out the Dodgers for six innings to lead the Diamondbacks to a 4-2 victory on Saturday.

He fanned four batters, walked one and allowed five hits. He was making his second career start and this one went much better than the first. He improved his ERA from 10.13 to 4.76 tonight. Shipley is filling in for injured starter Zack Greinke. He didn't strike out many batters in the minor leagues and is probably not going to be a reliable fantasy starter this year even if he does remain in the Diamondbacks' rotation. The former 1st round pick is more enticing in dynasty leagues as he does have the potential to become a mid-range starter eventually.
Jul 31 - 1:50 AM

Braden Shipley's major league debut didn't go well, as he allowed six runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Brewers.

Shipley served up a homer to the second batter he faced -- Scooter Gennett -- and wound up allowing three longballs on the night. He also walked four batters and gave up eight hits overall. It was a forgettable major league debut, but Shipley should get another shot this weekend against the Dodgers.
Jul 26 - 12:11 AM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of RHP Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

Shipley will make his major league debut Monday against the Brewers. The 25-year-old posted a 3.70 ERA and 77/22 K/BB ratio in 119 1/3 innings over 19 starts this season in Triple-A. It's unclear if he'll keep a rotation spot once Zack Greinke (oblique) is ready to return.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Shipley was the 15th overall pick back in the 2013 draft, but hasn't been great at the AAA level with just a 15.5 K% in 119.1 IP on the season. While the Brewers do strike out a ton against RHP (26.3 K%), they are in a nice spot tonight with one of the highest team totals on the slate. All of the bats in the top six of the order are squarely in play, and stacking up any combination of them is a fine GPP move.
Jul 25 - 4:14 PM

Diamondbacks pitching prospect Braden Shipley will be called up to make his major league debut Monday in Milwaukee.

Shipley will be filling in for Zack Greinke, who remains sidelined with an oblique injury. The former first-round draft pick (15th overall in 2013) has registered a 3.70 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 77/22 K/BB ratio in 119 1/3 innings this season at Triple-A Reno. It's not clear whether he'll get another turn after Monday.
Jul 23 - 7:15 PM

Diamondbacks RHP prospect Braden Shipley hurled six scoreless innings Monday in a no-decision for Triple-A Reno.

The former first-round pick allowed just three hits while matching a season-high with eight strikeouts. All three of the hits came within the first two innings as Shipley set down the final 15 batters he faced. The right-hander has pitched to a brilliant 2.10 ERA in May after struggling through a mediocre opening month (4.07 ERA in April).

Diamondbacks RHP prospect Braden Shipley spun six shutout frames Sunday for Triple-A Reno.

Reno didn't score until the 12th inning, forcing Shipley to settle for a no-decision. Shipley was firing on all cylinders Sunday with five strikeouts and only two walks. Both of those free passes came in the sixth inning. 67 of his 104 pitches went for strikes. The right-hander hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts, though he doesn't have a win to show for it.

Diamondbacks RHP prospect Braden Shipley scattered three hits and one walk over seven shutout innings Tuesday for Triple-A Reno.

Relievers Silvino Bracho and Scott Rice coughed up a three-run lead in the eighth inning, forcing Shipley to settle for a no-decision. The 24-year-old collected a season-high eight strikeouts while lowering his ERA from 5.71 to 4.07. 64 of his season-high 107 pitches went for strikes. Opponents are still hitting .266 for the year against Shipley, but Tuesday's gem could be a sign that he's ready to turn a corner.

Diamondbacks prospect RHP Braden Shipley got back on track Wednesday with six scoreless innings for Double-A Mobile.

Shipley allowed three hits and a walk with five strikeouts in the outing, throwing 54 of 90 pitches for strikes. The 23-year-old right-hander got off to a good start but then struggled mightily over six starts in May, going 0-4 with a 7.89 ERA, 2.06 WHIP and 20/20 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 29 2/3 innings. Shipley’s start on Wednesday was his first of the season in which he allowed fewer than two walks and four hits. Overall, Shipley owns a 4.64 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 41/30 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 54 1/3 innings (11 starts).
