5-Archie Bradley

It is hard to believe we have not seen Bradley in a D-backs’ uniform in almost three months. On Sunday, the rookie right-hander took another step back to the Majors by throwing four innings in a rehab outing for high Class A Visalia. He allowed four runs, (two earned) on three hits, walking one and striking out six. His fastball hit 97 MPH during the course of the game. Bradley will make at least one or two more starts before he is deemed ready to come back to Arizona. That puts him on track for a post-Labor Day return.
