Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley sent back down

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 14:29:21 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley has been optioned to Class AAA Reno. The team also recalled RP Silvino Bracho.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley did not fare well in his season debut Monday night, getting knocked out of the game in the fifth inning after surrendering five runs on seven hits and four walks. Although he's one of the club's top prospects, the right-hander has been inconsistent during his short time in the big leagues. While he has potential, he's not someone to stash just yet in most leagues. He'll get another shot sooner than later, however.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley spotty in season debut

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 00:47:19 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley walked four and gave up five runs over 4 1/3 innings in his season debut Monday, April 18. The Diamondbacks won, 9-7, in 11 innings over the San Francisco Giants. Bradley did not get the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Keep in mind this was his first outing of the year. You want to make sure a pitcher like Bradley has the rust shaken off of him in a situation like this, so give Bradley another game or two before you decide whether or not he is ready to play.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley called up

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 09:19:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley was called up from Class AAA Reno Sunday, April 17, after the D-backs played a 14-inning contest Saturday, April 16. The bullpen pitched 11 innings after SP Shelby Miller (finger) cut the knuckles of his right pointer finger and was pulled in the second inning Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Because Monday's scheduled starter Rubby De La Rosa pitched in relief Saturday night, Bradley will wind up making the spot start against the San Francisco Giants. Bradley was already 1-1 with a 4.05 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in two starts for Reno. He was a promising pitching prospect but has been set back by multiple injuries the last few years. He's likely to be sent back to the minors after this spot start, so he doesn't have much immediate fantasy intrigue.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley sent down

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 13:43:05 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley was optioned to Class AAA Reno Monday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley has been far too inconsistent in his young career, and injuries haven't helped his cause. There is time left for him, but he'll need to make some adjustments and stay healthy to land back in Arizona's rotation and on the radar of fantasy owners.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley has positive start

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 17:39:17 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley tossed two shutout innings Wednesday, March 2, opposite the Colorado Rockies. He walked one and struck out two.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley, one of the club's top prospects, has exceptional potential, but may not crack Arizona's Opening Day rotation. He produced mixed results last year as a rookie in his eight starts, but did show flashes of great promise. The 23-year-old right-hander will have to beat out the likes of Robbie Ray, Zack Godley and Tyler Wagner for a spot on the starting staff. His ceiling is notably high.

Diamondbacks | ARI has battle for two rotation spots

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 17:41:03 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SPs Rubby De La Rosa and Robbie Ray are believed to be the favorites to win the fourth and fifth spots in the team's starting rotation behind SPs Zack Greinke, Shelby Miller and Patrick Corbin, based on how they performed in 2015. SPs Archie Bradley, Zack Godley and Tyler Wagner are also believed to be involved in the competition.

Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa led all Arizona starters in victories (14) and games started (32) but posted a 4.67 ERA and served up 32 home runs over 188 2/3 innings in 2015. Ray went 5-12 but posted a respectable 3.52 ERA in 23 starts, along with 119 strikeouts in 127 2/3 innings. Both hurlers could be available in the later middle rounds of NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, although fantasy owners should monitor the competition throughout spring training to make sure that they crack the rotation.

MLB | Arizona-Texas in trade talks

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 11:22:45 -0800

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Texas Rangers are set to sit down and talk trades of pitchers at the winter meetings Wednesday, Dec. 9. The D-backs have a surplus of starting pitching after acquiring SPs Zack Greinke and Shelby Miller, and the Rangers have bullpen depth, and RP Steven Tolleson is of interest to Arizona. RP Keone Kela is also drawing significant trade interest. Diamondbacks SPs Rubby De La Rosa, Archie Bradley, Zack Godley and Chase Anderson could interest Texas.

Fantasy Tip: Talks appear to just be in initial stages, so nothing is imminent on this front, but it all makes plenty of sense. If Tolleson is traded away, Kela will be very attractive as a low-cost closing option for fantasy owners.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley will have to earn it

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 09:46:44 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley will have to compete for a rotation spot in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: The back end of the rotation is a little thin with Chase Anderson, Robbie Ray and Rubby De La Rosa. Bradley still has a high ceiling and would be worth a late-round flyer if he snags a spot.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley activated, optioned

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 09:45:07 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, Aug. 24, and optioned to Class AAA Reno.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should already be owned in most keeper and dynasty formats, but he could become useful to owners in deep mixed leagues if he rejoins Arizona when rosters expand next week and re-enters the starting rotation. Just know that the D-backs are likely to be very cautious with him.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley able to throw

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 19:03:46 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley (shoulder) was able to throw Wednesday, Aug. 12, as he works his way back from a bout with shoulder tendinitis.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and make it through an appearance or two without any lingering effects of his injury.
