Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Sent outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was optioned to Triple-A Reno prior to the Diamondbacks' 5-3 win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

Shipley's latest stint in the majors lasted just two games, with the right-hander receiving the demotion after giving up four runs on four hits and two walks over two innings Monday in Arizona's loss in the series opener. The Diamondbacks had been developing Shipley as a starter since selecting him in the first round of the 2013 first-year player draft, but after finding limited success in that capacity in recent seasons, it appears he has transitioned to a full-time bullpen role.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Called up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was called up to the majors Sunday.

Shipley tossed three scoreless innings for Arizona earlier in the month. He's up to replace Jake Barrett, who was optioned to Triple-A Reno.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Wednesday.

In a corresponding move, the club reinstated Jeff Mathis from the paternity list. Shipley appeared in two games over the past couple days, tossing a pair of scoreless outings against Pittsburgh while striking out one across three combined innings of relief. Look for Shipley to rejoin the bullpen later on this year.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Joins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Monday.

Shipley compiled a 6.48 ERA across 41.2 innings (split between starting and relieving) with Triple-A Reno prior to earning a promotion to the majors. The 26-year-old was recently shifted to a relief role and figures to work in low-leverage situations out of the bullpen during his time with the Diamondbacks. Christian Walker was sent to the minors in a corresponding roster move.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Working out of bullpen at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley has made all five of his appearances with Triple-A Reno out of the bullpen since being activated from the 10-day disabled list and optioned to the minors May 18.

Per Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, the success Matt Koch and Clay Buchholz have enjoyed at the back end of the rotation in recent weeks coupled with the impending returns of Shelby Miller (elbow) and Robbie Ray (oblique) from the DL convinced the Diamondbacks they had sufficient organizational starting pitching depth. With that in mind, Shipley has been transitioned to a relief role, which Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen believes will increase the right-hander's chances of making an impact with the big club later this season. Before he gets another call to the majors, however, Shipley will probably have to deliver far better results out of the bullpen. In those five relief outings with Reno, Shipley has given up eight runs (seven earned) on 16 hits and five walks over eight frames.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Returns from DL, option to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley (elbow) was reinstated from he 10-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

Shipley was expected to pitch in an extended spring training game Friday following his successful bullpen session Tuesday, but the Diamondbacks opted to send him straight the the minors instead. Arizona's plans in the starting rotation remain unclear with Robbie Ray (oblique) still on the disabled list, so it could turn out to be a short stay at Reno for Shipley.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Will pitch simulated game Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley (elbow) is scheduled to pitch an extended spring training game Friday, Justin Toscano of MLB.com reports.

Shipley came out of his bullpen session Tuesday without any issue, so he'll take another step forward in the rehab process by facing hitters in a controlled setting Friday. Assuming the extend spring training game goes well, Shipley could head out on a minor-league rehab assignment at some point next week. Once he's activated from the 10-day disabled list, Shipley could be an option for the Arizona rotation if Robbie Ray hasn't made a full recovery from a strained oblique by that point.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: To throw bullpen session Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic Arizona reports.

Shipley has been out since May 8 with elbow inflammation, so that bullpen session will come exactly a week after he hit the disabled list. The 26-year-old hasn't pitched in the big leagues yet this season and owns an ugly 6.40 ERA through six starts for Triple-A Reno.

May 10, 2018 07:08 PM
Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Scheduled to throw Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley (elbow) is expected to start a throwing program Friday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Shipley was placed on the disabled list Tuesday due to right elbow inflammation, so it's encouraging that he's already going to get back to throwing. It's unclear how long he'll be out, but he's eligible to return May 15.

May 9, 2018 12:48 PM
Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Lands on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was placed on the disabled list Tuesday with right elbow inflammation.

The move is retroactive to May 5, so he'll be eligible to return May 15. Shipley has yet to throw for the big club this season and owns a subpar 6.40 ERA and 1.53 WHIP after making six starts (32.1 innings) at Triple-A Reno. In a corresponding move, Silvino Bracho was recalled from Reno.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Called up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was called up to the big leagues Saturday.

The Diamondbacks have three starters on the disabled list, so they'll turn to Shipley for at least one start. The 26-year-old has a 5.40 ERA in 95 career big-league innings, and his underlying numbers back up his ERA, with a 14.3 percent strikeout rate and a 10.1 percent walk rate. He hasn't looked any better through six starts for Triple-A Reno this season, as his ERA there sits at 6.40.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Could replace Walker in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was one of four Triple-A Reno pitchers that Diamondbacks assistant general manager Jared Porter mentioned as potential replacements in the rotation for Taijuan Walker (forearm), who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic Arizona reports.

Walker will undergo an MRI on Monday as the Diamondbacks look to determine the severity of his forearm tightness in addition to a potential return timetable, but the right-hander's placement on the DL means that he'll miss at least one turn through the rotation Friday or Saturday against San Diego. In addition to Shipley, Porter said that Matt Koch, Albert Suarez and Kris Medlen -- all of whom are members of the Reno rotation -- could fill Walker's place, though the latter two seem to be less likely candidates due to their lack of 40-man roster spots. Shipley has been an early standout for Reno (1.59 ERA and 1.18 WHIP across 17.1 innings), but it would be difficult to roster him with much confidence even in NL-only formats if he gets the call to the Arizona rotation over Koch, Suarez and Medlen. The 26-year-old owns a 5.40 ERA (5.89 FIP), 1.62 WHIP and 5.7 K/9 across 95 career innings in the majors.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Optioned to Reno
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

Shipley was jousting for a back-end bullpen role this spring but, despite posting a solid 3.38 ERA and 0.94 WHIP over 5.1 innings of spring ball, will have to begin his 2018 campaign in Reno. The 26-year-old could make his way back to the big leagues during the regular season as an emergency spot starter or an additional bullpen arm. He posted a 5.76 ERA over 25 innings (including three starts) with the Diamondbacks last season.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Gives up homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley gave up two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out a batter over two innings Thursday during the Diamondbacks' 11-6 win over the Brewers in Cactus League play.

Two of the hits Shipley allowed went for extra bases and included a home run by Milwaukee catcher Manny Pina. Considering that the right-hander yielded 23 home runs across 130 innings between Triple-A Reno and the Diamondbacks a season ago, he'll likely need to show improvement in curbing the long balls in his subsequent spring outings to have a serious case for claiming an Opening Day bullpen role with the big club.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Unimpressive in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two batters in 3.1 innings Wednesday against the Giants. He didn't factor into the decision.

Shipley started in place of Zack Greinke, whose start was pushed to Friday so that he'll line up to pitch the NL Wild-Card Game on normal rest. It was Shipley's first start since June 4, as he had been working out of the bullpen since his callup at the beginning of September. He tallied 79 pitches Wednesday, so it's unlikely he'll make another appearance in the regular season, leaving his ERA at 5.76 through 25 innings (10 games, three starts). Shipley struggled as a starter for the big club as well as Triple-A Reno, so he'll try and figure out where he went wrong in 2017 with hopes of competing for a rotation spot in 2018.

Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Will start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley will start Wednesday against the Giants.

Shipley has been summoned four times from the bullpen since being brought up Sept. 1, but he will start Wednesday as the Diamondbacks rearrange their rotation prior to the postseason. Shipley threw 28 pitches in his last outing Saturday and will be pitching on three days rest, so don't expect him to go very deep into Wednesday's contest.

September 1, 2017 06:20 PM
Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Recalled from Reno
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was promoted from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

Shipley joins the flurry of September call-ups as the Diamondbacks add the right-hander to the active roster prior to a big series against Colorado. He's only made five big-league appearances this year, holding a 6.35 ERA and 2.06 WHIP in 17 innings, but should provide added depth to the bullpen moving forward.

August 20, 2017 06:04 PM
Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Headed back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

Shipley was brought up to the big club Sunday, but his stay in the majors didn't last long. He pitched 5.2 innings of Sunday's contest against the Twins and allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and two walks. Of those seven hits, three were home runs. The Diamondbacks plan on announcing a corresponding move Monday.

August 20, 2017 12:44 PM
Diamondbacks' Braden Shipley: Joins big-league bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shipley was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

He will pitch out of the Diamondbacks' bullpen, presumably for the rest of the season. Shipley failed to impress as a starter this year at Triple-A, posting a 6.06 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 63 strikeouts in 98 innings. Worse pitching prospects have gone on to have great careers as relievers, but for now, Shipley remains off the fantasy landscape.
