Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Sent outright to Triple-A
Shipley was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old, formerly a top pitching prospect, has fallen off the map due to poor command and control (4.1 career BB/9) and an inability to keep the ball in the yard (1.7 career HR/9). Shipley's pitch repertoire is decent, but the Diamondbacks ultimately decided he wasn't worth keeping on the 40-man roster over other prospects in the organization. He figures to act as an organizational depth piece in 2019.
