We keep hearing about how there is an outside chance that Archie Bradley could find himself with the Arizona Diamondbacks before the end of the season. If the criteria needed is a solid walks to innings ratio, he wouldn’t make the cut.
Over his last two starts, Bradley has pitched 10 1/3 innings and has allowed six walks. He also has given up eight hits and has struck out nine. His last outing was yesterday when he lasted only 4 1/3 innings giving up one run, allowing four walks and four hits. Bradley picked up his second victory for the Double A Mobile BayBears on July 30th when he went six innings and gave up three runs. He surrendered four hits and two walks with three strikeouts. His totals for the BayBears: eight starts, 38 1/3 innings pitched, 30 hits allowed, walked 23 and struck out 31.
Maybe Bradley is just bored at Mobile. Would a bump up to Triple A Reno or the D’backs change his numbers? I am not sure he can go anywhere until he gets his walks under control.
