5-Archie Bradley

All eyes will be on Birmingham, Alabama this week as Bradley goes to see Dr. James Andrews. Usually, a trip there results in a visit to the operating table and Tommy John surgery. Bradley felt soreness in his rehab start last week and was evaluated by D’backs’ team physician Dr. Gary Waslewski. The diagnosis was tendonitis and when you couple that with last year’s flexor strain, it’s not too hard to imagine the inevitable outcome of this scenario. Check back with us for the latest update on Bradley’s prognosis.
