D-Backs' Chip Hale: Archie Bradley relying too much on fastball


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Diamondbacks rookie starting pitcher Archie Bradley had another rough outing Tuesday at St. Louis and has struggled since returning from the disabled list. Bradley, who was struck in the head by a line drive during an April 28 start vs. Colorado, has an 11.89 ERA in three starts since returning to action.

"No, the injury is past," Bradley said, per MLB.com. "It's just bad baseball, it's bad pitching, it's bad pitches, it's bad sequences, it's just everything is not good right now and I know that. I don't feel sorry for myself. I don't think anyone else should. I've just got to get it fixed, I've got to get it fixed quick."

Manager Chip Hale said Bradley is relying too much on his fastball and not enough on his curveball and changeup.

"He was relying on the fastball early again and was not throwing enough strikes," Hale said of Bradley's outing Tuesday. "The good hitters, like they are, ambushed him a couple of times. He's got to get control of those other pitches so he can use them. He can't just be a thrower in this league. You've got to be a pitcher."


Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley allows six runs in Tuesday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley's troubles began in the first inning Tuesday and he never recovered. Bradley surrendered four runs in the first inning in route to permitting six runs on five hits over 3 2/3 innings during the 6-4 loss to the Cardinals.

Bradley (2-2) took the loss and he also allowed a home run to Randal Grichuk during the outing. He struck out three batters and walked three. His ERA now stands at 5.28.

Bradley has failed to pitch past the fifth inning in each of his last four starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Monday against the Braves.


D-Backs' Bradley survives rough first inning to settle for no-decision


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Archie Bradley settled for a no-decision Thursday at Miami and remains winless in two starts since his return from the disabled list. The right-hander allowed four runs on nine hits and two walks, while striking out four in five innings.

Bradley is lucky to settle for the no-decision after he got off to a very rocky start. Bradley took the mound with a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first, but the Marlins would score three times to take the lead.

Dee Gordon led off the inning with a walk, Marcell Ozuna followed with a single and Gordon then scored on Giancarlo Stanton's RBI single. Martin Prado loaded the bases with an infield single before Christian Yelich grounded into a double play to score Ozuna. Justin Bour followed with an RBI single before Bradley escaped the jam.

Bradley was able to settle down for the next two innings before J.T. Realmuto led off the fourth inning with a triple. He scored one batter later on a sac fly.

Bradley put two more runners on in the fifth inning via singles, but escaped the inning without allowing a run.

The Diamondbacks went ahead 6-4 in the top of the sixth before Miami tied the game in the bottom of the inning, costing Bradley a chance for the win.

"It's just about getting back to being more consistent," Bradley said, per MLB.com. "I'll have it for a couple hitters and then lose it for three or four pitches, and it results in a walk or me being behind in the count and having to throw balls in the middle of the plate. It's just about being more consistent, finding the rhythm I had in spring training. Maybe I'll look at some film of that. Just getting back to being more consistent, getting ahead in counts and not having to work from behind as much."

Bradley has allowed eight runs in seven innings since coming off the DL. He is slated to make his next start is for Tuesday at St. Louis.


Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley struggles in return from DL


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) Diamondbacks starter Archie Bradley (2-1) lasted just two innings on Saturday against the Phillies. Bradley was making his first start since taking a comebacker off his face during his start on April 28.

He allowed four runs on five hits, while walking three and striking out one as the D-Backs fell to the Phillies 7-5. He gave up a solo home run to Jeff Francoeur in the bottom of the second. He came out to start the bottom of the third, but gave up two more runs before being lifted. The bullpen allowed one more run credited to Bradley to score, as the Diamondbacks were down 4-0 before they knew it.

"It kind of snowballed on me," Bradley said of the three-run Phillies third, per MLB.com. "I couldn't get it back. Up here, you have to make adjustments quicker than that. It kind of unraveled and I couldn't get it back."

The Diamondbacks are hoping that Bradley can rebound and get back to pitching as well as he did before his injury. His start on Saturday lifted his ERA from 1.80 to 3.27. He is scheduled to make his next start on Thursday in Miami.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Bradley will come off the 15-day DL on Saturday after he was hit by a line drive on the side of his face last month.

"Just back to normal, like it never happened" he said. "I'm sure I'll still think about it sometimes here and there, but I feel like when it comes to game time, it's just going to be trying to focus on the game plan and focus on trying to get them out."


Diamondbacks' Archie Bradley, Matt Stites pitch simulated game


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Diamondbacks pitchers Archie Bradley and Matt Stites both participated in a simulated game on Monday, the team announced. 

Bradley has been recovering from a line drive he took to the face in April. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that Bradley actually had a liner hit back to him in the simulate game and didn't flinch, according to MLB.com

Bradley, who has been on the 15-day disabled list, came out of the simulated game fine and will start this Saturday. 

"Obviously a little scary, but didn't flinch, got right back up there and overall threw the ball well," Bradley said of the comebacker. "Arm felt good, face felt well, and just overall ready to get going again."

Stites is recovering from an elbow injury and has been on the 15-day disabled list. 


Diamondbacks hope Archie Bradley can return by May 16


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) The Diamondbacks are targeting May 16 for the return of pitcher Archie Bradley, reports MLB.com.

"Everything has gone well," Bradley said. "I've healed up even quicker than I thought I would, so things are going in the right direction. The cuts inside my mouth have healed up. That's where a lot of the pain was. My teeth are starting to come back to normal and the swelling has gone down."

Bradley has been sidelined since he took a line drive off his face in late April. He is currently on the 15-day disabled list.


D-Backs' Bradley says swelling almost gone, bullpen went well

D-Backs SP Archie Bradley expects to throw in a few days


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bradley, who was able to walk off the field under his own power Tuesday, added his teeth are the most sore part of his face Wednesday. Although, Bradley said he does have a slight sinus fracture, but it is minor enough that he would be able to pitch if it were the playoffs. Bradley tweeted a few photos showing the right side of his face was severely swollen after the incident.

He was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, but he is hoping to be back after the minimum stint.

The rookie right-hander is 2-0 with a 1.84 ERA in four starts. He has not allowed more than two earned runs in a start.

He has been diagnosed with a right sinus fracture. 


D-Backs' Bradley not dealing with concussion after liner to the face


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Archie Bradley returned to Chase Field for the final innings of Tuesday's 12-5 victory over Colorado, per the Denver Post. Bradley was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital for further testing after he was struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of Carlos Gonzalez, which traveled at 115 mph.

"I kind of woke up and I was laying down. And I was like 'Oh, crap, what just happened,'" Bradley said, per FOX Sports Arizona.

Team trainer Ken Crenshaw told reporters that preliminary exams revealed no symptoms of a concussion for Bradley, though he is dealing with swelling in the nasal cavity, per the team's official website. An ear and throat specialist will examine him again once the swelling begins to subside.

"Well it's not pretty to look at the mirror right now ... Now my concern is to get healthy and get back out there," Bradley said.

Manager Chip Hale told reporters that the team will recall a reliever if Bradley lands on the disabled list, which is almost certain. He did not reveal any candidates to replace Bradley in the rotation.


D-Backs' Archie Bradley departs after taking a line drive to the face


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Archie Bradley was removed from Tuesday night's contest against the Rockies after being struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of Carlos Gonzalez.

Trainers tended to Bradley, who had a swollen cheek immediately after the incident in the second inning. The ball left the bat of Gonzalez at 115 mph, per MLB.com. He was able to walk off the field and back to the clubhouse under his own power. Bradley who never lost consciousness, was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital for further testing. The team will provide a complete medical update after the game.

Bradley, 22, struck out two and allowed one run on two hits over 1 1/3 innings. It remains uncertain if he'll make his next start Monday at Coors Field.


New cleats led to Archie Bradley's early struggles Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Although Diamondbacks starting pitcher Archie Bradley improved to 2-0 on Wednesday against the Rangers, it wasn't a flawless outing for the rookie right-hander. In fact, he got into trouble early and almost got yanked from the game.

Bradley issued three walks and hit one batter in the first inning, which prompted pitching coach Mike Harkey to call down to the bullpen in case Bradley continued to struggled, per MLB.com.

"You can say you're not aware of it, but I heard the bullpen phone ring," Bradley said. "I saw guys start to get loose, and I was like, 'All right I've got to figure something out, or I'm not going to make it out of this first inning.'" 

Bradley worked out of the jam, allowing just one run, and then made a change of his own before the Diamondbacks made their change. Bradley used a new pair of cleats he had never pitched in to begin the game. Once Bradley switched his cleats, he settled down to throw five scoreless innings before being taken out of the game. 

"That's what I'm most proud of -- to have the long first and grind through six innings and leave with my team winning," Bradley said. "I think that's where you've seen some of the growth in me out there. Even though it still wasn't pretty, and I still had the walks and the high pitch count, I was able to make some quality pitches and put some balls on the ground for the guys up the middle to make plays."


Diamondbacks' Archie Bradley walks five in win vs. Rangers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley earned a win Wednesday despite issuing five walks while allowing two hits and just one earned run in six innings in his team's 8-5 victory over the Rangers.

Bradley (2-0) doled out three walks and hit a batter with a pitch in the first inning, with one of his free passes coming with the bases loaded. He was largely able to settle down after that despite walking the leadoff man in each of the next two innings. The rookie owns a sparkling 1.45 ERA but a mediocre 12:11 K:BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings after three starts, all Diamondbacks wins.

Bradley is scheduled to square off with the Rockies at home Tuesday.


Diamondbacks' Archie Bradley delivers quality start vs. Giants


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bradley surrendered an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning but was able to keep the Giants off the board until he left the game. Unfortunately, he was charged with a second earned run after the bullpen surrendered a home run after the starter left a man on base. It was a quality follow-up after the rookie tossed six one-hit innings in his debut. He takes a 1.42 ERA and 10:6 K:BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings into Wednesday's matchup with the Rangers.

Bradley then surrendered a double to Howie Kendrick, but managed to work out of the inning with a strikeout and a groundout.

"He did a good job. He got his first hit, he got picked off for the first time and he threw the ball well," D-backs manager Chip Hale said after the game, per MLB.com. "He's a confident kid. It's exciting for the ballclub, it's exciting for the organization."

He will look to keep rolling and maintain his perfect ERA Thursday against the Giants.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Diamondbacks pitching prospect Archie Bradley is expected to open the season in the rotation after the team traded Trevor Cahill to the Braves Thursday, the Arizona Republic reports.

Manager Chip Hale said earlier Thursday that Bradley was still under consideration for a rotation spot despite his previous announcement of the team's rotation that didn't include the prospect. Bradley posted a 1.61 ERA and 16:4 K:BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings this spring.

D-Backs' Hale says Archie Bradley still in mix for rotation spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale acknowledged again Thursday the team is still considering Archie Bradley for the rotation, even after announcing its rotation plans earlier this week, per The Arizona Republic. The Diamondbacks' Opening Day rotation consists of Josh Collmenter, Jeremy Hellickson, Rubby De La Rosa, Trevor Cahill and Chase Anderson.

Hale said Bradley has "really made the decision tough on us" following a strong spring campaign. Bradley went 3-2 with a 1.61 ERA in six spring outings (four starts). He had 14 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings.

Hale added the team has not talked about a six-man rotation. Also, putting Bradley in the bullpen as a long reliever remains an option as well.

Bradley was a consensus top-10 prospect heading into 2014, but struggled last season and has taken a slight tumble down the rankings this season. Baseball America has him ranked as the 25th-best prospect and MLB.com has him at No. 15 heading into the season.


D-Backs' Archie Bradley throws six scoreless innings in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley threw six scoreless innings during Wednesday afternoon's 3-0 win over the Reds. 

Bradley struck out two batters and gave up three walks. He surrendered only one hit. Bradley faced 21 batters and threw 69 pitches. This game dropped Bradley's spring training ERA to 1.61. 

Though the Diamondbacks have already announced their starting rotation, manager Chip Hale said this most recent outing — combined with the rest of his spring performance — may cause the club to reconsider its thinking

"We've named our five, but he's pushed the envelope all the way down to the last possible chance he had," Hale said, via the Arizona Republic. "He's looked great. We'll have to sit down and evaluate everything."

Bradley is 2-2 with a 2.20 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings this spring.
