It can be difficult to find playing time for everyone once rosters expand. It can be especially tough on a reliever who is called up to the Majors for the first time. That would be the case with Bracho who recently went a week in between appearances. In eight games, he has allowed eight hits and four walks in 7 1/3 innings. However, he has also struck out 11 and been unscored upon in eight of his eight outings. If Bracho can regain his strikeout to walk ration he had at Double A Mobile (59 K’s and nine walks in 44 2/3 innings), he will be an option for the D-backs in 2016. A more realistic scenario has him starting the season at Triple A Reno since he skipped that level in 2015.
