RP - PHI
Phillies reliever Archie Bradley earned his second save of the season in Thursday's win over the Nationals, allowing two hits and an unearned run in an inning of work.
With Ranger Suarez transitioning to the starting rotation, the Phillies appear to be utilizing a committee approach to the ninth inning for now.
Phillies reliever Archie Bradley allowed one earned run on two hits and one walk over an inning of work on Monday but ended up with a win.
Bradley earned the win on Monday thanks to Andrew McCutchen's walk-off three-run home run in the bottom half of the inning. Through 30 appearances this season, Bradley has a 3.21 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, and 15 strikeouts over 28 innings.
Phillies reliever Archie Bradley allowed one run on one hit, no walks, and no strikeouts to earn his first save of the season in Sunday's win over the Mets.
No one in the Philadelphia bullpen has been particularly impressive lately, Bradley included. He earned the save on Sunday, with fellow late-inning option Jose Alvarado allowing a run in the eighth inning. Former closer Hector Neris has blown four of his last six save opportunities, and this situation appears to be a committee until one of these relievers pulls away from the pack.
Archie Bradley has been reinstated from the injured list.
Bradley last pitched on April 10th before hitting the IL with an oblique injury, but looks fully ready to contribute. Hector Neris remains the closer and has been fairly effective, but Bradley can be viewed as a high-end handcuff, and would likely step into the closer's role should anything happen to Neris.
Phillies right-handed pitcher Archie Bradley, who has been out since April 11th with an oblique injury, is targeting a return on May 18th. This date corresponds with when the team returns home from its nine-game road trip.
Bradley made four appearances out of the bullpen this season, allowing two runs on four hits. He added a walk and a trio of strikeouts over three innings of work. He ranks 56th among relievers in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings. Bradley could be an low-end fantasy option once he returns, but he's not worth a roster spot until them.
