Diamondbacks optioned RHP Braden Shipley and RHP Silvino Bracho to Triple-A Reno; and reassigned RHP Joey Krehbiel and OF Cesar Puello to minor league camp.
Shipley was the Diamondbacks first-round pick in 2013, and while he showed flashes of impressive upside early in his minor league career, the stuff has regressed over the past two seasons. He profiles back as a backend starter or possible reliever, and won't have fantasy value in those roles. Mar 18 - 12:06 PM

Braden Shipley allowed two runs in two innings of work Thursday against the Brewers.

Shipley didn't walk anyone and struck out one, but allowed four hits against the Milwaukee lineup. Once one of the best pitching prospects in the National League, the 26-year-old right-hander has struggled to miss bats, and doesn't have good enough command to compensate for it. The humidor may help, but Shipley is unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact this season, and may spend most of 2018 in Triple-A for the Diamondbacks.
Mar 8 - 4:47 PM

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.

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.

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Braden Shipley to Triple-A Reno.

Shipley was with the club for just one day to serve as a fresh arm in an overworked bullpen. He should be back up once rosters expand in September.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

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. He was named the Reno Aces Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Month for May, going 2-0 wth a 3.67 ERA across four starts.

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.
Fri, May 5, 2017 05:29:00 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.

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.
