Bradley was a first-round draft pick back in 2012, but his results in the minor leagues over the years have been average at best. That being said, the left-hander is only 26 years old and pitched well as a starter between Double-A and Triple-A this past season, so the Orioles decided to take a flier on him. He has experience both as a starter and as a reliever, so he could fill a variety of roles at the upper levels of the Orioles system next season. To make room for him on the 40-man roster, Paul Janish was designated for assignment.
Bradley will be used from the bullpen with Atlanta, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Bradley has played in three games with Triple-A Gwinnett, all of which were starts. He's done well in said outings, as he posted a 1.50 ERA and 1.39 WHIP across 18 innings. However, before arriving at Gwinnett, Bradley had played 32 games between Double-A Biloxi and Double-A Mississippi with only 10 being starts.
Bradley was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
With rosters expanding, Bradley will join the Braves for the first time in 2016 after splitting the minor league season between Double and Triple-A. Bradley holds a cumulative 3.09 ERA across 35 appearances (13 starts) to go with a 1.36 WHIP.
Bradley experienced only stretches of success with the Brewers after being taken by the club in the first round of the 2011 draft, so the team decided to give him a fresh start and send him to the team that plays its home games in the same state Bradley attended college. Bradley worked as a reliever the last two seasons after beginning his career as a starter, but it remains to be seen what role he will be used in for his new squad.
