Pitcher of the Year: Archie Bradley

From his very first outing of the season to the end, Archie Bradley provided value unmatched by any starter or reliever.

The right hander set the tone for his breakout 2017 with 3.1 scoreless innings against the San Francisco Giants on April 4, and finished the regular season with a 1.73 ERA.

Bradley held right-handed batters to a .193 average and the opposition scoreless in 53 of 62 appearances.

Zack Greinke and Robbie Ray had great seasons, but what seperates Bradley is his leadership. Bradley was the energizer bunny, the vocal leader and the heart and soul of the 2017 Diamondbacks.
