Gotta get more the 1-3 and 1-7. Dbax coulda walked out of that draft with the 2 best positional players available (Rendon/Lindor). Things sure would be looking a lot better.

Archie's back for a spot start today. I hope he comes out dealing with his recent Renossaince.

Wasn't pretty, but gotta give him credit for gutting through 6 after throwing a ton of pitches as usual early in the game

To be fair, 15-20 of those pitches were basically extra because out infield suddenly forgot how to field. He gave up quite a few baserunners, but I think he did a fantastic job under the circumstances. Want to see more of him soon.

Plus it was in Colorado, where the park and altitude are against you.

Not a bad start.

Well, we've all ridden the ups and downs of Archie.

It's a good time to point out his recent run of good pitching has pulled him up to 99 ERA+, and 1.1 bWAR, or 0.6 WAA for his 12 starts this year. His FIP based WAR is 0.5.

So that is essentially a league average starter by ERA+, and since it's just 12 starts, 70 innings, the bWAR and WAA numbers are actually better than league average. (IF he maintains that level of production the rest of the year)

His ERA is 4.37, and FIP is 4.49, but xFIP is 4.12. In other words, while the FIP numbers are cautionary, if he can manage to give up a few less homers and walks, just some more incremental improvement, he'll be headed on his way. Maybe he just needs the time, like Max did.

I've advocated in the past turning him into a reliever, but I have to admit that was premature on my part.

His Velocity is not anything to write home about, and if he is giving up throwing 95 to gain more command, I'd like to see him gain more command. But he is headed in the right direction, and team patience with him is to be applauded.

Good stuff. Still worried about the lack of development on change. Loved the outing vs Bum and Giants.

But question on team patience. How much of this was just what choice did they have?

And why I think he is a major piece moving forward I still have a gut feeling they would trade him for a bag of magic beans?

Also know he loves having Tuffy behind the dish. Where can I find splits of how he has done this year with various catchers?

Archie finishes the year on a high note with arguably the best start of his career to close out his season, (7 IP, 2 ER, 0 Walks 11 K's)

This leaves him with a season ending 5.02 ERA, which is disappointing, but a 4.10 ERA and 4.10 xFIP

He finishes with 9.08 K/9, 4.26 BB/9 and 1.02 HR/9 and a 45.1% GB rate.

This is decent progress for a 24 yr old. He's no longer "elite" prospect status. But he has made enough progress this year to justify a spot in next year's rotation and hopefully continue his development.

If he can get his BB/9 below 3 before he loses any of his "stuff" over the next 2-3 years then he could put up a couple of nice seasons for the club before he gets expensive, approaches free agency.

It's still the walks, and command though. He still needs to make a pretty big step forward in that department to achieve consistency.

D-Backs manager Torey Lovullo tells MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM (Twitter link) that the club isn’t interested in moving righty Archie Bradley back to the rotation at this point. That was a topic of discussion when Shelby Miller was lost for the year, says Lovullo, but ultimately the team felt Bradley was too valuable in his current role as a multi-inning-capable reliever. The 24-year-old, a former top prospect, had struggled as a starter in his prior MLB work. But he currently owns a sterling 1.46 ERA through 24 2/3 innings of relief, with 31 strikeouts against just six walks on the year.

Heard Dan Plesac refer to Archie Bradley as the RH Andrew Miller on MLB Network this afternoon.

Wouldn't pitching the ninth after having first ripped through the eighth qualify AB as a "multi-inning-capable reliever?" ;)
