Bradley Optioned, Silvino Bracho Recalled

As expected following last night's game, the Diamondbacks made a roster move, bringing Silvino Bracho to the big club for the second time this year

Bracho returns to the Diamondbacks, for whom he made one appearance earlier this season, on opening day, giving up a three run home run to Nolan Arenado. In fairness, it was a rough start to his season, and not entirely his fault, as he inherited two baserunners and had to face one of the tougher hitters in the game. But he looked shaky even after that, although he avoided giving up any more runs.

In four single inning appearances for Reno, he allowed one run and picked up two saves, striking out six and walking no one. So he is being recalled on merit, and hopefully will be able to provide some value in the sixth or seventh inning, depending on the situation, particularly as Randall Delgado has looked rather shaky of late. Bracho did not pitch for Reno yesterday, so he'll be available tonight.

Bracho has also worked back-to-back days twice while in Reno, which is something that he'll likely have to do for the Diamondbacks, as the bullpen has been overworked so far.

Bradley, meanwhile, showed flashes of returning to his former self last night, but also struggled with command. Hopefully he can continue hitting 95 with regularity while regaining that command, and then we'll likely see him again. Tyler Wagner appears set to stay with the team as the long reliever at least until Matt Buschmann can be recalled again.
