Brady (undisclosed) was placed on the minor-league disabled list Thursday.
Specifics regarding the injury remain unclear, leaving Brady without a timetable for his potential return. The 31-year-old right-hander struggled to a 7.47 ERA across 31.1 innings with Triple-A Colorado Springs prior to landing on the shelf.
Brady was cut from major-league spring training and reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Brady will likely open the year at Triple-A Colorado Springs. The 30-year-old threw 31.2 innings over 16 games in the majors last season as a member of the Athletics, posting a 5.68 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in that time. He tossed 5.2 innings over six games this spring, during which he struck out six batters and gave up two runs on four hits.
Brady agreed to a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Sunday that includes an invitation to spring training, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Brady became a free agent in early November after declining an outright assignment to Triple-A within the Athletics' organization. The 30-year-old made his major-league debut in 2017, posting a 5.68 ERA over 31.2 innings of relief with the A's. He'll have an outside shot at making the Brewers' Opening Day roster with a strong performance during spring ball.
Brady was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
With numerous players being brought off the 60-day DL, the A's had to make room on the 40-man roster and opted to outright Brady. Brady pitched 31.2 innings over 16 games last season. In that time he owned a subpar 5.68 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.
Brady fired three clean innings in Monday's 7-1 loss to the Mariners, recording a strikeout.
Brady got his nine outs on an efficient 30 pitches, a welcome respite from his recent struggles. The 30-year-old right-hander had allowed a combined seven earned runs in two of his previous three outings, and Monday's effort represented his longest scoreless appearance of the season. However, despite the blanking, he retains an unsightly 10.50 ERA across six September frames, as well as a 5.87 figure on the season.
Brady gave up five earned runs on six hits over an inning in Sunday's 10-2 loss to the Mariners.
Brady entered the game with the Athletics down a manageable three runs, but he allowed that deficit to extend to eight during a disastrous eighth inning. The right-hander was done in by a small-ball attack, as the five runs he surrendered came off three singles and a pair of fielder's-choice groundouts. Brady has given up a total of seven earned runs in the three outings since his return from Triple-A Nashville, and the 30-year-old has allowed 14 earned runs in his last five major-league appearances (two starts) dating back to Aug. 1.
Brady was called up from Triple-A Nashville on Friday.
In a corresponding move, the club placed Paul Blackburn (wrist) on the disabled list. Brady may get the opportunity to earn a spot start against the Angles on Tuesday, but any official word will likely come later on this weekend. During 10 appearances with the A's this season -- all coming out of the bullpen -- Brady has posted a 4.56 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 23.2 innings.
Brady was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.
Brady's demotion opens up a spot on the active roster for Daniel Gossett, who was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Orioles. The 30-year-old Brady has mostly served as a long reliever out of the Oakland bullpen this season, logging a 4.56 ERA and 1.23 WHIP over 23.2 innings.
Brady gave up three earned runs on seven hits over 5.1 innings in Saturday's 12-5 loss to the Orioles while also recording five strikeouts.
Brady ate up some valuable innings for manager Bob Melvin after starter Sean Manaea was shockingly shelled in the opening frame. Just recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Friday, the 30-year-old right-hander experienced a bit of deja vu in his first outing back: He worked six innings in relief of Manaea as well on Aug. 1 before being sent down. Brady has bounced between Triple-A and the majors plenty this season, with his ability to fill a variety of roles keeping him valuable to the Athletics.
Brady was called back up by the A's prior to Friday's game against the Orioles.
Brady will rejoin the team after being optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Aug. 2. The reliever has appeared in eight games for Oakland this season, posting a 4.15 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over the course of 17.1 innings. He projects to serve in low-leverage situations for the foreseeable future.
Brady was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.
The Athletics recently added another long-relief option to their bullpen after Chris Smith was pushed out of the rotation, so Brady was rendered a bit redundant. The right-hander likely wouldn't have been available until the weekend anyway after he covered six frames in long relief Tuesday after starter Sean Manaea lasted just three innings.
Brady gave up four earned runs on five hits, three walks and a wild pitch over six innings in Tuesday's 10-4 loss to the Giants. He struck out four.
After starter Sean Manaea threw 70 pitches over three innings, Brady was called upon to eat up multiple frames and give the fatigued Oakland bullpen some relief. He managed to go the distance despite giving up a pair of home runs, while firing 72 pitches overall. Just called back up from Triple-A Nashville on Monday, Brady can serve in a multi-inning relief capacity when necessary and make spot starts in a pinch, although it's uncertain how long his current stint with the big-league club might last.
Brady was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Two roster spots opened up with Sonny Gray and Adam Rosales both traded prior to Monday's deadline, and Brady will return to fill one of those. Brady has enjoyed a good deal of success at Triple-A and in the majors this year, but the A's will need to clear a roster spot for Kendall Graveman (shoulder) relatively soon, and it's possible Brady will head back at that point.
Brady was demoted to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.
Brady was solid in seven games, as he recorded a 3.18 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 11.1 innings. He has options remaining and will likely be occasionally up to eat innings in the back of Oakland's bullpen for the rest of the season.
Brady gave up an earned run on three hits and two walks over two innings in Thursday's 6-1 loss to the Astros. He struck out two.
The 30-year-old has been serviceable since his first appearance on June 20, working multiple innings on a pair of occasions and generating a solid 8:2 K:BB over 8.1 frames across five appearances overall. Having logged 40 career minor-league starts, Brady is able to fill a long-relief role when called upon, making him a valuable commodity on a team whose starting rotation has been inconsistent.
Brady gave up an earned run on a solo home run over one inning in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Astros.
Brady's one mistake over his 13 pitches resulted in a 395-foot solo homer by Carlos Beltran, blemishing the 30-year-old's major-league debut. The right-hander has an extensive minor-league career that dates back to 2013 and consists of multiple stints at the Double-A and Triple-A levels. That resume includes 40 starts, although he's expected to remain a bullpen fixture with Oakland.
Brady's contract was selected by the A's on Saturday.
The club optioned fellow right-hander Zach Neal back to Triple-A Nashville to clear a spot for Brady. Over 14 appearances with Nashville this season, Brady has notched a 3.67 ERA to go with a strong 0.97 WHIP across 41.2 innings. This will mark his first stint with the big=league club.
Brady was assigned to minor league camp Monday.
Brady came to the Nationals via trade back in December, and he'll likely open the year at Triple-A after spending the entirety of 2015 at Double-A within the Angels organization. The 29-year-old posted solid numbers, going 7-7 with a 3.77 ERA and 1.140 WHIP as he rebounded from a fairly disastrous 17-game stint (7.01 ERA) at the Triple-A level in 2014.
Brady was included in Thursday's trade that also sent Trevor Gott to the Nationals in exchange for Yunel Escobar, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Brady spent the 2015 season at Double-A Arkansas, posting a 3.77 ERA to go with 113 strikeouts and just 12 walks over 119.1 innings. The six-foot right-hander will be 29 at the beginning of the season and will look to compete for bullpen spot at Triple-A in all likelihood.
