Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley set to start Saturday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 14:29:06 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley will start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, April 11, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Not only does Bradley ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) draw a potent lineup, but Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to be the opposing starter Saturday, too. Bradley should be a considered a low-priced flier for his first start, and finishing with a win will be difficult. It is likely best to spend up for a more reliable arm.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley named fifth starter

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 08:48:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley was named the fifth starter by the club.

Fantasy Tip: The Trevor Cahill trade opened a spot for the top-flight prospect. At $3,000 (6.0% of your cap), Bradley makes an excellent low-end flyer on FantasyScore when he pitches.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley still a rotation option

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 10:57:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley is still a candidate for the starting rotation, according to manager Chip Hale. Bradley could also be used in long relief.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley was one of the top prospects in baseball before an elbow injury last season. At $3,000 (6.0% of your cap), he'd be worth a flyer on FantasyScore. It's worth mentioning that chief baseball officer Tony La Russa had a propensity to ease top prospects into their careers via the bullpen as a manager. Bradley would have no fantasy value in long relief.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley battling for bullpen spot

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 17:25:53 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley is battling for the final spot in the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) making the Diamondbacks as a reliever would be somewhat shocking. The starting pitching prospect was competing for one of the rotation openings, and it would make more sense for the rebuilding Diamondbacks to prevent starting his service time by optioning him to AAA. Bradley is a late-round flier in NL-only leagues.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley more focused

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 12:21:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley said he has been more focused this spring and believes he is in a good state mentally. "It's been an extreme focus," Bradley said. "I feel like that's what it takes to succeed. That's the difference from getting guys out in the big leagues or not. That's the difference from last year to this year. I feel like I have a better understanding of that focus. That mental preparation compared to just the physical." Bradley is still with the team and is not sure where he stands in the competition for a spot in the starting rotation. He has also been able to make adjustments so he does not lose his command for long stretches of time.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) may not make the opening day roster but should have a chance to pitch for the Diamondbacks at some point this season. Owners on NL-only and deep mixed leagues could consider selecting him in the later rounds of drafts and keeping him stashed on their bench.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley tinkering with new pitch

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 13:43:45 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley is hoping a knuckle curveball can help carry him in 2015. "For a knuckle curve, you're not throwing it like a normal curveball where you're snapping your arm," Bradley said. "I was able to throw it at a young age, and it's just something that has been successful for me in pro ball." Bradley learned the pitch at a young age, and he can now successfully throw it for strikes. Manager Chip Hale said Bradley has put his up and down season in the minors last year behind him. A knuckle curve is a difficult pitch to throw, and Bradley acknowledged that if it isn't thrown correctly, it typically stays out over the middle of the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley's struggles in the minors last year won't endear him to any fantasy owners in mixed leagues to start the season. Bradley must still win a rotation spot this spring, too. If he wins a spot, though, he might be worth a late-round flier if you're confident in his improvement. It's probably safer to take a wait-and-see approach with him in mixed leagues, though.

Diamondbacks | Rotation up for grabs

Sun, 08 Feb 2015 00:58:44 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter and SP Jeremy Hellickson will likely open the season in the starting rotation, but a wide variety of pitchers are in contention for the final three spots. SP Trevor Cahill and SP Vidal Nuno have the most major league experience. SP's Chase Anderson, Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster, and Robbie Ray received looks last season. Top SP prospect Archie Bradley will probably open the year in the minors. Other candidates include P's Andrew Chafin, Randall Delgado, and Daniel Hudson.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley coming up?

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 10:24:07 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley is listed among the team's players to play in the Arizona Fall League, and manager Kirk Gibson is unsure if that'll keep Bradley from pitching for the team when rosters expand in September. The decision will be up to general manager Kevin Towers. Bradley has thrown just 82 2/3 innings this year because of an elbow injury earlier this year.
