I think we can officially name “Another one bites the dust” as the theme song for this season. Seriously, what is up with the sheer quantity of injuries to pitchers this year.

I bet this delays his call-up for a while…AZ would rather him blow his elbow out in AAA than in the majors

2014 Tommy John Counter = 27. I hope Bradley isn’t #28.

I was at 28. Do you have a list of all of the players? I think I need to recount.

Actually we were both wrong, current # is 27 pitchers. 29 if you include position players. List, courtesy of Jon Roegele, is:

NOTE: AJ Griffin will now be pitcher #28 unless Bradley beats him to the OR. Danny Rosenbaum (WAS MiLB) and Pedro Figueroa (TEX) will likely join this list next week as well.

Actually he’s ranked 4th. It’s 2014, not 2013.

So many people had insisted Bradley was ready and the D-Backs were just gamimg his service clock. I don’t suppose this topic is where they’re all going to come and say maybe he really wasn’t ready. Is it? Didn’t think so.

Thank you so much, so counting Griffen, Rosenbaum, and Figueroa (not Bradley since I believe he will not need it) we are at 32 correct?
