Bracho signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Wednesday as a non-roster invitee, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Bracho missed most of the past two seasons after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March 2019, but he made one appearance for the Diamondbacks at the end of last year, allowing two runs over one inning. He'll now get to compete for a role with the Giants during spring training in 2021.
Bracho was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old missed most of the past two years after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March 2019, but he returned from the injured list at the end of September and allowed two runs over one inning during his lone appearance of the season. Bracho was solid out of the bullpen with a 3.19 ERA in 31 appearances for Arizona in 2018, but he'll need to work for his spot on the roster next year.
Bracho (elbow) was activated from the 45-day injured list Friday.
The 28-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery in March 2019 and has been sidelined all season, but he'll return from the injured list for the final weekend. Bracho last pitched in 2018 and had a 3.19 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 34:12 K:BB over 31 innings, and he'll likely make an appearance or two this weekend to get him some game action before the offseason.
Bracho (elbow) has tested positive for COVID-19, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Bracho was already placed on the 60-day injured list Monday as he continues to recover from the Tommy John surgery he underwent in March of 2019. He suffered a setback in his recovery while play was suspended, so he might not be ready to play at any point in 2020. However, manager Torey Lovullo revealed Sunday that Bracho was one of three Diamondbacks to test positive for coronavirus, although he is asymptomatic.
The Diamondbacks placed Bracho (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Monday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
Back in spring training, Bracho had been expected to open the season on the shelf while he continued to recover from the Tommy John surgery he required in March 2019. Even with Opening Day having since been pushed back another four months, Bracho still won't be ready to go after general manager Mike Hazen indicated the right-hander suffered a setback in his recovery while the season was suspended. Bracho's move to the 60-day IL likely means he won't pitch for the Diamondbacks at any point in 2020.
Bracho (elbow) is expected to start the season on the injured list, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Bracho underwent Tommy John surgery last March, so this is not a surprising bit of news. Tommy John survivors typically require more than a year before pitching competitively again.
Bracho (elbow) was sent to the 60-day injured list on Monday.
The move makes room on the 40-man roster for the newly-signed Adam Jones. It has no effect on Bracho's return timeline, as he'll spend the year recovering from Tommy John surgery.
The Diamondbacks announced Wednesday that Bracho will require Tommy John surgery to repair the torn UCL in his pitching elbow, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
The injury is a disappointing one for Bracho, who was out of minor-league options and appeared poised to earn a full-time middle-relief role with the big club in 2019. Bracho's absence for the rest of the season -- and likely for a large portion of 2020 -- will thus open up a spot for another pitcher to break camp with the big-league bullpen. The right-hander will likely be placed on the 60-day injured list in the near future if the Diamondbacks don't choose to release him while he faces a lengthy recovery.
An MRI revealed Bracho is dealing with a partially torn UCL, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
Bracho suffered the injury over the weekend, and Monday's MRI confirmed fears that the issue isn't a minor one. While a course of action has yet to be determined for the right-hander, Tommy John surgery remains a distinct possibility; his test results are being sent to Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion.
Bracho (elbow) was scheduled for an MRI on Monday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Results of the MRI have not been made public, but the Diamondbacks fear Bracho's elbow injury is serious. "(I) had some conversation with him and (he's) obviously a little bit disappointed," manager Torey Lovullo said, "but we're going to hope for the best and I told him to remain as optimistic as possible." The right-handed reliever bounced back in 2018 after two subpar seasons, but underlying metrics and this injury do not portend a repeat in 2019.
Bracho was removed from Sunday's game against Seattle because of elbow pain, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
The Diamondbacks still don't know the extent of Bracho's injury, but he's expected to see the team doctor Sunday evening.
Bracho exited Sunday's game against the Mariners with the team trainer after suffering an undisclosed injury, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
The details surrounding Bracho's injury are unclear at this point, but it's concerning that he wasn't able to finish the inning.
Bracho notched two strikeouts and retired the other three hitters he faced in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Rockies.
Since rejoining the Diamondbacks in September when rosters expanded, Bracho has been one of the team's most heavily used bullpen arms. His appearance Saturday was his ninth of the month, as well as his best to date. Bracho, who has posted a 3.08 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 31:10 K:BB across 26.1 innings in the big leagues this season, will look to turn in a couple more solid outings during the final week of the campaign to build his case for a full-time gig in the majors in 2019.
Bracho was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Saturday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
The right-hander's 4.46 ERA in 34.1 innings for the Aces comes with several positives, including eight saves, a 13.6 K/9 and a 2.1 BB/9. He's done well in 18 major-league outings, too, with a 2.04 ERA, 11.7 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9. The Diamondbacks should deploy Bracho in at least a few high-leverage setup spots down the stretch, which could feed him a few holds.
Bracho was sent back down to Triple-A Reno on Thursday.
Bracho was moved off the active roster in order to make room for Brad Ziegler. Through 18 appearances with the Diamondbacks this year, Bracho has logged an impressive 2.04 ERA and 0.79 WHIP with an 11.7 K/9. Look for him to return to the majors when replenishments in the bullpen are needed.
Bracho was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.
Andrew Chafin was placed on the paternity list, so Bracho will return to the big-league club to take his place in the short term. He has been back and forth between the majors and Triple-A this season, sporting a 2.04 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 17.2 innings in the big leagues.
Bracho was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday.
Bracho was removed from the roster to make room for T.J. McFarland (neck), who was activated from the 10-day disabled list. His performances suggest he could return soon, as he's recorded an excellent 2.04 ERA in 17.2 major-league innings this season. He's struck out a third of the batters he's faced while walking just 7.3 percent.
Bracho was called up from Triple-A Reno on Thursday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
The promotions of Bracho and Matt Koch likely signify that Shelby Miller (elbow) and T.J. McFarland (neck) are headed for the disabled list. Bracho last appeared in a game against the Padres on July 5, and has logged a clean 1.72 ERA and 0.83 WHIP while recording 22 strikeouts over 15.2 innings of relief for Arizona this year.
Bracho was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Saturday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Bracho will return to Reno for the second time since the start of July, though he has a 1.72 ERA and 0.83 WHIP with 22 strikeouts across 15.2 innings with the Diamondbacks this season. The 25-year-old seems likely to rejoin Arizona at some point given his major-league success thus far in 2018.
Bracho was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Thursday.
Bracho has made 12 appearances out of the bullpen for Arizona this season, posting an impressive 1.84 ERA and 0.89 WHIP with 21 strikeouts over 14.2 innings. The Diamondbacks promoted Bracho after sending Joey Krehbiel to the minors following Wednesday's matchup with St. Louis.
