Phillies Place Archie Bradley On Injured List

The Phillies are placing righty Archie Bradley on the injured list with an oblique injury, according to Matt Gelb of The Athletic.

This is surely a frustrating development for Bradley and the Phillies, as he has been a largely solid member of a shaky relief corps for the Phils. The righty has logged 51 innings for the club with an ERA of 3.71. His strikeout and walk rates are both slightly worse than average, at 17.9% and 9.8%, respectively, but his 55.7% groundball rate is excellent. This is his second trip to the injured list this year, as he missed over a month at the beginning of the season, also with an oblique injury. If this injury is as severe as that one, it has the potential to finish Bradley’s season. The Phils are still hunting for the NL East crown and are just 1 1/2 games behind Atlanta, but another month-long stretch on the injured list would keep Bradley out of action into the World Series. For what it’s worth, Bradley himself said he hopes to pitch again in October, per Todd Zolecki of MLB.com. Signed by the Phillies to a one-year, $6MM deal in January, the 29-year-old is a free agent at season’s end.
