Archie Bradley Placed On DL With Elbow Injury

4:59pm: There does not appear to be any structural trouble with Bradley’s elbow, Berthiaume tweets.

2:16pm: Top Diamondbacks prospect Archie Bradley has been sent to the minor-league disabled list with a mild flexor strain in his elbow, MLB.com’s Steve Berthiaume tweets. Heading into the season, Bradley was universally considered one of the best prospects in baseball, and a likely candidate for a summer promotion to the big leagues. After two solid starts at Triple-A Reno to begin the season, however, he struggled in his last three outings, allowing 12 runs while striking out 15 and walking eight in 12 1/3 innings.

MLB.com currently ranks Bradley the No. 7 prospect in baseball. Baseball America’s Prospect Handbook 2014 ranks Bradley the Diamondbacks’ best prospect, praising his outstanding, mid-90s fastball and plus curveball. Last season, he posted a 1.84 ERA with 9.6 K/9 and 4.1 BB/9 in 152 innings split between Class A+ and Double-A.

    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.

    • Segal27 1 year ago

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

      • WhoKilledTheRallyMonkey 1 year ago

        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.

        1) Ivan Nova

        2) Johnny Hellweg

        3) Mac Williamson- OF

    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?
