Bradley (shoulder) was credited with his ninth hold of the season after retiring two batters and allowing two runs on three hits and a walk.
Bradley hadn't pitched since Tuesday while managing a shoulder issue, but he was available out of the bullpen for the series finale against the organization that drafted him with the No. 7 overall pick in 2011. He nearly squandered a 5-2 lead, but Hector Neris came on to replace him with two outs in the top of the eighth and stranded the tying and go-ahead runs on base.
Bradley was unavailable for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks due to a shoulder injury, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Bradley allowed two runs in one inning to take the loss against the Rays on Tuesday, and manager Joe Girardi revealed that the right-hander has been dealing with a shoulder issue. However, he's expected to be available out of the bullpen during Saturday's matchup against Arizona.
Bradley allowed an unearned run on a pair of hits but secured his second save of the year in Thursday's win over the Nationals.
Bradley was tasked with preserving a 7-5 lead and withstood a double, single and throwing error that brought Washington to within a run. Bradley has managed only 17 strikeouts in 32 innings this season, but he's allowed just one earned run over his last 14 appearances dating back to the end of June. New addition Ian Kennedy has yet to pitch in a save situation since being acquired last week, while Bradley and Jose Alvarado have each earned saves in that time, making this a situation to monitor in the days ahead.
Bradley (5-1) allowed a run on two hits and a walk in one inning, but he earned the win Monday versus Washington.
Bradley wasn't able to keep Philadelphia's deficit to one run, but it didn't matter when Andrew McCutchen walked it off in the bottom of the ninth inning. The right-hander's 10-inning scoreless streak ended Monday, but he's been fairly solid in July, collecting four holds and two wins. The reliever has a 3.21 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 15:16 K:BB across 28 innings, which suggests he's enjoyed a fair amount of good luck so far.
Bradley (4-1) allowed one hit and zero runs over 1.2 innings in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Marlins and picked up the win.
He was sandwiched in between starter Matt Moore and closer Ranger Suarez en route to to a successful 5-2 win in the first game of the second half of the season. Bradley has a discouraging streak of seven appearances (7.2 innings) without recording a strikeout, although he has only given up one earned run over that stretch.
Bradley allowed a solo home run in one inning to earn the save in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Mets.
With Philadelphia's closing committee performing poorly lately, manager Joe Girardi turned to Bradley to protect a three-run lead Sunday. The 28-year-old was able to overcome a one-out homer to Kevin Pillar to secure his first save of the year. Bradley has hardly inspired confidence this year with a 4.24 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 13:12 K:BB across 17 innings. In addition to Sunday's save, the reliever has added a hold, a blown save and a 3-1 record across 20 outings. Bradley saw some time as a closer in Arizona in 2019, so he may continue to get ninth-inning looks while both Hector Neris and Jose Alvarado work through their struggles.
Bradley (2-1) picked up the win Saturday against the Yankees, striking out two in a perfect 10th inning.
Bradley entered the game with a man on second base to start the 10th inning, but the veteran right-hander did not let the runner advance, recording a groundout and a pair of strikeouts to keep the Yankees off the board. The Phillies pushed a run across in the bottom half to give Bradley his second win of the campaign. Though the reliever still holds a less-than-stellar 3.97 ERA, he's been effective over the past two weeks, having not allowed an earned run across his last seven outings dating back to May 29.
Bradley (1-1) earned the win in relief Tuesday against the Marlins after striking out the only batter he faced.
Bradley came into the game to record the final out of the eighth inning, fanning Adam Duvall on a swinging strike with a full count in what was a seven-pitch at-bat. It was Bradley's first win of the season in his first appearance since returning from the injured list, as he missed several weeks due to an oblique strain. Expect him to remain in a setup role for the time being.
Bradley (oblique) was activated from the injured list Tuesday.
Bradley pitched just four times for the Phillies before being shut down with an oblique strain. He was behind Hector Neris in the closer depth chart at the time he got hurt, and Neris has done nothing to lose the job thus far, cruising to a 2.45 ERA and saving seven games. Bradley could still find his way to the occasional save and would be one of the top options to close should Neris get hurt, but he's unlikely to be anything more than a setup man for now.
Bradley (oblique) will begin his rehab assignment Wednesday, making his first appearance with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
The righty made four early-season relief appearances, two scoreless and two with earned runs, before being placed on the injured list April 11. Bradley has proven effective in high-leverage situations in recent years and will likely receive such opportunities with the Phillies upon returning to full health.
Bradley (oblique) has had his timeline delayed by a cold, but he's expected to start throwing bullpens soon with the intention of rejoining the Phillies when they return from their upcoming road trip, which ends May 16, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Bradley was initially expected to miss 3-to-4 weeks when he was sidelined with a strained left oblique in mid-April. The front end of that timeline has already passed and he's still yet to throw a bullpen, but he appears to be trending in the right direction now. He'll likely make a rehab appearance or two with Triple-A Lehigh Valley before being activated.
Bradley (oblique) will miss 3-to-4 weeks, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Bradley was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday due to a left oblique strain, and manager Joe Girardi revealed Wednesday that the right-hander will spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the injured list. Prior to his injury, Bradley posted a 6.00 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in three innings across four relief appearances this year.
Bradley was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a left oblique strain, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
The right-hander apparently suffered the injury Saturday as he retired only one of the three batters he faced against the Braves. Bradley will be eligible to be activated April 21, though the severity of the injury remains unclear.
Bradley was placed on the injured list Sunday for undisclosed reasons, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
The specifics of the situation remain unclear, but the right-hander is apparently dealing with an injury after surrendering one run while recording one out Saturday against Atlanta. Bradley could return April 21 if he misses only the 10-day minimum, though it's unclear how long he's expected to be sidelined.
Phillies manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday that Bradley would begin the season as a setup man behind closer Hector Neris, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Bradley and fellow offseason pickup Jose Alvarado had both received consideration for the closer gig in spring training, but Girardi opted to go with a more familiar option for the job in Neris, who has saved 72 games for the Phillies across the past five seasons. Neris was awarded the gig after a spectacular showing in spring training, but he'll still enter the season with little security in the role due to his past issues with limiting walks and keeping the ball in the yard, which have resulted in him coughing up the job on multiple occasions over the last few years. Bradley -- who has saved 24 games between the past two seasons -- thus represents one of the more intriguing closers in waiting, though he may be tough to hold in shallower formats now that Neris has the job, at least for the time being.
Bradley has opened Grapefruit League action with three straight scoreless innings, striking out two while walking one and giving up three hits.
Bradley joined the Phillies on a $6 million deal in January and appears to be firmly in the closer conversation, with Hector Neris looking like his main rival. Neris has strikeout upside that Bradley can't touch, as he's topped out at a 37.4 percent strikeout rate, a full 10 ticks above Bradley's career high of 27.4 percent, but Bradley has generally been better at keeping runs off the board nonetheless. He owns a 2.95 ERA since converting to a relief role in 2017, while Neris owns a 3.61 mark over that stretch and has finished above 4.50 in two of the last three years.
Bradley signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Phillies on Thursday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Bradley was non-tendered by Cincinnati in early December and was one of the top relief options in free agency. The right-hander spent time with the Diamondbacks and Reds in 2020, recording six saves while posting a 2.95 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 18.1 innings. He could work in some high-leverage situations for Philadelphia and may very well contend for save chances right off the bat in 2021.
Bradley was non-tendered by the Reds on Wednesday.
A former closer, Bradley posted a 2.95 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 18.1 innings with the Diamondbacks and the Reds last season. This would have been his final year of arbitration, so he would have been given a sizable contract that may not have been in line with his role with Cincinnati in 2021. He is now one of the top free agent relievers on the market.
Bradley (back) was used in relief in Game 1 of the Reds' 1-0 loss to the Braves in the wild-card round, giving up the game's lone run in the 13th inning while yielding hits to two of the three batters he faced.
Bradley didn't pitch in any of the Reds' final six regular-season contests due to lower-back tightness, but his inclusion on the team's 28-man postseason roster and his subsequent appearance against Atlanta indicate he'll head into the offseason healthy. The 28-year-old's half-season in Cincinnati ended on a sour note, but he's still expected to play a key role in the late innings for the club in 2021, assuming the Reds elect to tender him heading into his final year of salary arbitration.
Bradley last pitched on Sept. 20 and missed some time with lower-back tightness, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Bradley was available to pitch over the last two days of the season, but was held out after the Reds clinched a playoff spot Friday night. "It was good knowing that he could have pitched, but he didn't," manager David Bell said. "It worked out even better just to give him those days. He's going to be good to go."
