Dbacks MiLB Round-Up 7/19: Bradley's Back

Cameron Spencer

Archie Bradley delivered the kind of performance last night that reminds us of the kind of prospect he is. Seven innings pitched, 2 runs on 3 hits and a walk with 10 strikeouts. For me personally it registers as a kind of relief as it's been quite a long time since we've seen a performance like that from him. It's certainly something he can build on, and a few more starts like that and it's not even beyond unreasonable to think he could get a few starts for the Diamondbacks in September. Most importantly he did it on 97 pitches which says he's fully healthy and they're taking the gloves off and letting him go.
