"I don't know if we get it accomplished this week, but by the time we start the season I'd really like to try to improve our starting rotation." - Dave Stewart
"I would probably have him start the season back in the minor leagues and get more seasoning." - Dave Stewart on Archie Bradley
The tone in Diamondbacks General Manager Dave Stewart's voice suggests a level of trust in Wade Miley and Josh Collmenter, two pitchers he seems comfortable slotting into his 2015 starting rotation, perhaps near the top.
The Arizona Diamondbacks‘ new general manager Dave Stewart told MLB Network Radio that he will not make a big boom in free agency by signing one of the top players on the market. Instead, he thinks he has a better chance to look at Japanese starting pitcher Kenta Maeda over Max Scherzer, Jon Lester, and James Shields.
Diamondbacks pitching prospect Archie Bradley is healthy and pitching in the Arizona Fall League, but the results still aren’t there yet following his regular season bout with an elbow injury. The right-hander has a 6.60 ERA with an 11/8 K/BB ratio in 15 innings for the Salt River Rafters. This comes after he posted a 4.45 ERA in 82 innings in the minor leagues.
