Diamondbacks optioned RHP Braden Shipley to Triple-A Reno.

Diamondbacks activated RHP Braden Shipley from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Reno.

Shipley is over his elbow injury but will head back to the minors. He's posted a 6.40 ERA for Reno this season.
May 18 - 3:19 PM

Braden Shipley (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

Shipley landed on the disabled list a week ago with right elbow inflammation, but he's made a quick turnaround. The Diamondbacks might need him in their rotation with all the injuries they've had.
May 14 - 5:41 PM

Braden Shipley (elbow) will resume a throwing program Friday.

Shipley was given a cortisone injection earlier this week after being placed on the disabled list with right elbow inflammation. It's unclear how long he might be out, and it's possible he's sent back to the minors once he's healthy.
May 11 - 12:50 PM

Diamondbacks placed RHP Braden Shipley on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 5, with right elbow inflammation.

Shipley was called up from Triple-A Reno last week but had not made an appearance for the Diamondbacks. The severity of this elbow issue is unclear.
May 8 - 6:39 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

Shipley was recalled to take the spot of Kris Medlen, who was knocked for seven runs in a spot start Friday. Shipley hasn't inspired much confidence, either, at Triple-A this year, owning a 6.40 ERA and 1.52 WHIP through six starts. There's nothing to see here, fantasy-wise, until the former first-rounder gives us reason to think otherwise.
May 5 - 5:27 PM

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 recalled RHP Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

Shipley has a 6.35 ERA over five appearances -- two starts -- with the D'Backs this season. He'll operate in long relief.

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 optioned RHP Braden Shipley to Triple-A Reno.

Shipley has posted a 6.30 ERA and 2.10 WHIP in two starts and one relief appearance this season at the major league level. Ildemaro Vargas will take his spot on the Diamondbacks' 25-man roster.
Thu, Jun 29, 2017 12:30:00 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

Shipley holds a 7.00 ERA over two starts with the D'Backs this season. He'll work in long relief this time.
