  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Lit up in start

    Bradford (4-3) allowed six runs on seven hits and struck out three without walking a batter over four innings, taking the loss Tuesday versus the Angels.

    Bradford was initially expected to serve as an opener, but he ended up covering the most innings of the Rangers' four pitchers Tuesday. He struggled right out of the gate, allowing a three-run home run to Brandon Drury in the first inning. Bradford now has a 5.30 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 49:12 K:BB through 54.1 innings over 19 outings (eight starts) this season. He's given up 12 runs over his last seven innings, but he may be needed to make another appearance against the Mariners this weekend with the Rangers' rotation a bit thin.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Serving as opener Tuesday

    Bradford will serve as the Rangers' opening pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Angels.

    Bradford worked into the fourth inning during his last opportunity as an opener, so he may be asked to eat a few innings before Texas turns the game over to the bullpen. He owns a 4.65 ERA,1.19 WHIP and 46:12 K:BB across 50.1 frames this season.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Opening pitcher Sunday

    Bradford will serve as Texas' opening pitcher in Sunday's game against the Guardians, Jeff Wilson of reports.

    Bradford threw 42 pitches over 2.2 innings of relief Thursday at Toronto and will probably be asked to cover only the first two or three frames Sunday at Cleveland. The 25-year-old left-hander has posted an overall 3.80 ERA and 44:12 K:BB across 47.1 major-league innings this season with the Rangers.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Tagged with six runs

    Bradford (4-2) yielded six runs on seven hits over three-plus innings Sunday, striking out two and taking a loss against Cleveland.

    Bradford looked strong through three shutout frames before a disastrous fourth inning. He coughed up six straight hits and was charged with six runs during the Guardians' nine-run frame. Bradford was riding a 7.1-inning scoreless streak entering Sunday but saw his ERA jump to 4.65 through 50.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Recalled from Round Rock

    Texas recalled Bradford from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

    Sam Huff is the other September call-up for the Rangers. Bradford carries a 4.50 ERA and 37:11 K:BB in 40 innings this season at the major-league level and will likely slide into a long relief role.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Optioned to minors

    Bradford was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.

    Bradford pitched well in spot duty his past two outings with three earned runs allowed across eight innings, and he'll head down to the minors with Texas' trade acquisitions joining the active roster. The 25-year-old has a 4.50 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 37:11 K:BB across 40 innings this season, and it's likely only a matter of time before he rejoins the big-league bullpen.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Fans five in no-decision

    Bradford allowed one run on four hits and three walks over three innings in Sunday's loss to San Diego. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

    Bradford limited the damage to just one run despite finding himself in a couple of jams in his short outing. He's been a solid bulk-innings option for Texas lately; he registered a 3.48 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP over 20.2 innings in July. Bradford will likely move back to a more traditional bullpen role after the Rangers' recent acquisitions of Max Scherzer and Jordan Montgomery.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Starting Sunday

    Bradford will start Sunday's game against the Padres, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The left-hander allowed two runs over five frames in bulk relief Tuesday and will work as a traditional starter for Sunday's series finale in San Diego, with Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) missing a second straight turn through the rotation. Even with Eovaldi's availability up in the air for the near future, it'll likely just be a spot start for Bradford since the Rangers acquired Max Scherzer from the Mets on Saturday.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Delivers five solid frames

    Bradford gave up two runs on six hits and no walks across five innings during Tuesday's 4-3 loss at Houston. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    The left-hander was initially expected to start Tuesday but was instead used in a bulk role behind opener Yerry Rodriguez. Bradford surrendered a pair of solo homers but was otherwise able to keep the Astros off the board. The Rangers had an open rotation spot Tuesday with Nathan Eovaldi (rest) having his turn skipped, and Bradford should return to a more traditional relief role with team off days on deck Thursday and Monday.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Not starting after all

    Bradford will not start for the Rangers on Tuesday in Houston as initially reported.

    Bradford could wind up going multiple innings as a bulk reliever, but the Rangers have opted to open with Yerry Rodriguez. The Astros will be going with a traditional starter in J.P. France.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Getting start Tuesday

    Bradford will start for the Rangers on Tuesday in Houston, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    It's Nathan Eovaldi's spot, but the Rangers have opted to skip Eovaldi's turn in the rotation after he's experienced a recent dip in velocity. Half of Bradford's appearances for Texas this season have been starts and he was used as a starter at Triple-A Round Rock, but lately he's been used more in relief, including last Friday when he went 1.1 innings versus the Dodgers. Thus, this could be more like an extended opener situation. Owen White would seem to be a candidate to eat up some innings in relief.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Claims win in relief

    Bradford (2-1) picked up the win in Sunday's 6-5 victory over the Guardians after covering three innings out of the bullpen and allowing two runs on three hits and no walks. He struck out four.

    Bradford made a five-inning start during the Rangers' final series of the first half in Washington, but he looks like he'll work in relief for the foreseeable future after Texas opened its post-All-Star-break schedule with a five-man rotation. The rookie owns a respectable 4.55 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 29.2 innings in the majors this season and should be the Rangers' top option for a spot start should the team lose a rotation option at any point.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Collects first MLB win

    Bradford (1-1) picked up the win in Friday's 7-2 victory over the Nationals, allowing one run on five hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out one.

    While he wasn't dominant, the rookie southpaw generated plenty of soft contact en route to his first career big-league win. Bradford has a 2.70 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB through 16,2 innings over five appearances (three starts) since the beginning of June, and he's the Rangers' top option right now as a sixth starter/swingman, a role which gives him some fantasy appeal considering the strength of the offense supporting him.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Likely to start Friday

    Bradford will likely be the Rangers' starter Friday against Washington, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Assuming Bradford isn't needed out of the bullpen Thursday against Boston, he will make his fifth start of the season Friday. HIs start will push Andrew Heaney's next outing to Saturday, and Martin Perez's turn in the rotation will be skipped. Bradford holds a 4.98 ERA and 1.15 WHIP through 21.2 innings this season.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Makes latest appearance in relief

    Bradford most recently appeared out of the bullpen for the Rangers' 12-11 loss to the Astros on Monday, covering 2.1 perfect innings while striking out four.

    Since being called up from Triple-A Round Rock on June 13, Bradford has made just four appearances, with two coming as a starter and two coming as a reliever. His pair of starts came amid a heavy stretch of games in which the Rangers wanted to build in some extra rest for the other five members of the rotation, but Bradford looks as though he'll stick in the bullpen through the All-Star break. The Rangers may use the upcoming break to send Bradford back to Round Rock, though the rookie southpaw should be the organization's top choice to rejoin the big-league rotation should Texas lose a starter at any point.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Career-high eight strikeouts

    Bradford did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks over 4.1 innings in a 8-5 loss to Detroit. He struck out eight.

    Bradford was pulled after allowing a solo homer to Spencer Torkelson with one out in the fifth, but that was still enough time to record a career-high eight strikeouts. He struck out the side in the third, with each batter going down swinging, and then struck out two of the three hitters he faced in the fourth. Bradford has failed to make it through five innings in each of his last two starts, but since a shaky MLB debut May 15, he has a 3.77 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB through 14.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Starting Thursday

    Bradford will start Thursday's game against the Tigers.

    The decision to start Bradford on Thursday will push back the Rangers' rotation by a game, allowing Jon Gray and Nathan Eovaldi to both start during Texas' upcoming series against Houston on an extra day of rest. Bradford holds a 5.40 ERA and 1.20 WHIP alongside a 12:4 K:BB through 15 innings in the majors this season.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Mops up in loss

    Bradford struck out one over a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in Monday's 7-2 loss to Detroit.

    Bradford, a minor-league starter that made three starts for Texas this year, mopped up in the ninth inning with the Rangers trailing by five. This was his first relief appearance at any level since college at Baylor, and the first time pitching in 13 days. Texas manager Bruce Bochy didn't want Bradford's first relief appearance as a pro to be on short notice in a high-leverage situation, and Monday's large deficit presented an opportunity. The manager confirmed to Shawn McFarland of the Dallas Morning News that the team doesn't have a firm plan for the left-hander at this time, but the 25-year-old could be of use while the team is in the midst of a stretch of 17 games in 17 days leading up the All-Star break.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Decent in no-decision

    Bradford did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk over 4.1 innings against the Angels. He struck out three.

    Pitching on three days' rest in his third appearance since being called up from Triple-A Round Rock, Bradford held a potent Angels lineup down for most of the evening. He threw 42 of 64 pitches for strikes and didn't allow a hit to the last eight batters he faced before being pulled in the fifth inning. After being rocked for six runs in his debut, the young southpaw has settled down nicely, allowing just three runs over his last 9.1 innings.
