Diamondbacks | Moving to a six-man rotation?

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 15:03:17 -0700

The Arizona Diamondbacks might shift to a six-man rotation in September, according to manager Kirk Gibson. The switch would help limit SP Chase Anderson's innings, and provide an opportunity for SP Archie Bradley to debut.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley is among the highest touted pitching prospects in baseball. He would be worth a flier in the majority of formats, if he were recalled. Anderson has pitched well, but limiting his starts could hinder his upside down the stretch.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley pitching well in minors

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 23:49:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley has a 3.97 ERA in 34 innings at Double-A Mobile, and Bradley has been healthy following injury scares earlier this season.

Fantasy Tip: The writer of this piece, Baseball America's Jack Magruder, suggests Bradley could be called up if Arizona goes to a six-man rotation. Bradley is worth a pickup if you have room to stash away players on your roster but doesn't have much fantasy value this year unless called up.

Diamondbacks | GM talks Archie Bradley

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 15:02:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley has pitched better with each outing at Double-A Mobile, according to general manager Kevin Towers. "We don't have a timetable, but at some point in time it would be nice to see him up here to get his feet wet and give him an opportunity to face major-league competition. See how he stacks up and see what he needs to work on," Towers said.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley is worth stashing in NL-only formats and potentially in deeper leagues. He is a high-end prospect, and he could reward with a few solid starts in September. However, keep your expectations in check.

Diamondbacks | Bronson Arroyo hoping to avoid TJS

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 13:45:21 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Bronson Arroyo (elbow), who won't throw for 10 days due to a strained ulnar collateral ligament and irritation in the flexor mass in his right elbow, is just hoping he can avoid Tommy John surgery. He is hoping he can return to throwing by the All-Star break. Arroyo said his elbow has bothered him in his last six starts. General manager Kevin Towers said he doesn't think this injury is related to the bone chip that was revealed in an MRI exam during a preseason evaluation.

SPs Zeke Spruill and Mike Bolsinger are both options to replace Arroyo in the starting rotation. SP Archie Bradley (elbow) will not be an option, as he's working his way back from an elbow sprain. Bradley tossed three innings in a rehab start Monday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Given Arroyo's age, expect the D-Backs to be cautious with him and give him plenty of time to return to full health. Spruill and Bolsinger are NL-only options, at best.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley struggling

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 07:03:42 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley is 1-4 with a 5.18 ERA in five starts at Triple-A Reno.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley would be one of the prime candidates to replace an injured starter, but he's very hittable right now. He's worth stashing in NL-only leagues.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley to slow himself down

Thu, 22 May 2014 15:35:54 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley (elbow), who is on his second day of his throwing program after being shut down for three weeks with a strained flexor mass in his right elbow, said his biggest problem has been rushing himself on the mound. "Last year I was a lot slower with everything -- my delivery, my mechanics," he said. "That's how I was my first few starts. I don't know what changed or what happened, but everything just got quick on me. Everything was really quick. That's something I've been working on here." Bradley is hoping to resume pitching in games in July and thinks he can still make his major league debut this year.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley has a lot of work to do to earn a call-up to the majors once he's fully healthy to pitch in games again. He could easily be a September call-up, but expecting much more from him this year is foolish.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley's injury not serious

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 11:33:47 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley's (elbow) mild flexor strain in his right elbow isn't considered serious, and he's not expected to miss more than a few weeks. Bradley will rest his arm for two weeks and resume throwing if his symptoms have gone away. He had a nice first outing with Triple-A Reno, but since, his command has abandoned him, and he's walking almost 4.5 hitters per nine innings.

Fantasy Tip: The D-Backs clearly don't want to rush Bradley and feel he needs some more time in the minors to mature and develop as a pitcher. His timetable for an MLB arrival has now been pushed back further, and we probably won't see him now until at least later this summer. If you were stashing him in a mixed league, it's time to consider other options for the time being.
