Top Taj Bradley News

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Falls to Blue Jays

    Bradley (5-8) took the loss Sunday, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks over seven innings against Toronto. He struck out four.

    Toronto did most of its damage against Bradley in the second inning, scoring five runs, including three on George Springer's inside-the-park home run. The 22-year-old Bradley has now allowed four or more runs in three of his five starts since he was recalled from Triple-A earlier this month, pitching to a 5.14 ERA in that span. The rookie right-hander will likely face Toronto again in his next outing as he looks to wrap up the regular season on a high note.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Sharp in no-decision

    Bradley did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one run on three hits and one walk over five innings against the Angels. He struck out six.

    The right-handed rookie retired 11 of the first 13 batters Tuesday before Logan O'Hoppe ripped a solo homer in the fourth inning, accounting for the Angels' lone tally against Bradley. In four starts since being recalled from Triple-A on Sept. 3, the 22-year-old has posted a 4.29 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 25:11 K:BB across 21 innings with six of his 10 earned runs during that stretch coming via solo home runs. Bradley tentatively lines up for a home matchup with divisional foe Toronto this weekend.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Allows two home runs

    Bradley did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing four runs on four hits and three walks over 4.2 innings against Minnesota. He struck out seven.

    Bradley cruised through the first two innings before surrendering back-to-back home runs to open the third, each coming on the first pitch of the at-bat. He got himself into trouble again in the fifth after walking two of the first three batters he faced, which led to the right-hander being relieved by Jake Diekman with two outs in the frame. Bradley has now allowed four earned runs and multiple homers in back-to-back starts and is still looking for his first win since June 21.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Strikes out five in no-decision

    Bradley did not factor into the decision in Friday's win over the Mariners. He struck out five and allowed four runs on six hits and two walks over 6.1 innings.

    Bradley surrendered three home runs in Friday's start, the most he's allowed since giving up four to Arizona on June 27. Since being recalled from Triple-A Durham on Sept. 3, the Tampa Bay rookie has allowed five earned runs with 12:7 K:BB in 11.1 innings over two starts. Bradley's next outing is currently scheduled to come in Minnesota.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Receives another start

    Bradley is scheduled to start Friday's home game against the Mariners.

    In his first big-league start since July 29 on Sunday, Bradley turned in uneven results in a no-decision at Cleveland. He struck out seven and allowed just one earned run on three hits over five innings, but he issued five free passes and threw two wild pitches. Despite his poor efficiency, Bradley will get at least one more turn through the rotation, as the Rays are short on healthy starting options.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Walks five batters

    Bradley allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and five walks over five innings in Sunday's win over Cleveland. He struck out seven and did not factor in the decision.

    Bradley was promoted from Triple-A Durham for his first MLB appearance since July 29. He displayed his usual nasty strikeout material, but the command was still shaky. He's walked nine batters in his last two MLB starts but owns a 12.0 K/9 through 79.2 career innings. If Bradley sticks around for another turn in the rotation, he'll likely face the Mariners at home.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Recalled ahead of start

    The Rays recalled Bradley from Triple-A Durham ahead of his start Sunday against the Guardians.

    Bradley will be making his first appearance in the majors since July 29, when he surrendered five runs in just 3.1 frames against Houston. He's pitched to a 2.91 ERA and 1.38 WHIP through 21.2 innings in the minors since being optioned to Durham, but fantasy managers should be cautious with Bradley until he can re-establish himself as a regular part of the Tampa Bay rotation.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Coming up to start Sunday

    Bradley will be recalled from Triple-A Durham to start Sunday versus the Guardians, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Bradley will be making his first start in the majors since late July. He's turned in a mixed bag of results so far at the big-league level, posting a 5.67 ERA and 1.41 WHIP but also an excellent 99:26 K:BB over 74.2 frames. He collected a 2.91 ERA and 24:11 K:BB over 21.2 innings covering five starts with Durham in August.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Optioned to Triple-A

    Bradley was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    The Rays traded for Aaron Civale on Monday, which gives them four starters to use in the short term, not including Bradley. Manager Kevin Cash said Bradley handled the news well and that they hope he'll be back up at some point. Bradley logged a 7.89 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 26 strikeouts in 21.2 innings across five July starts.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Roughed up by Astros

    Bradley (5-7) took the loss Saturday, allowing five runs on three hits and four walks over 3.1 innings in a 17-4 loss to the Astros. He struck out four.

    Bradley gave up a two-run home run to Yainer Diaz in the second inning, marking his seventh consecutive appearance allowing a long ball. Despite surrendering five runs, Bradley allowed just three hits, tying his season low in the category while doling out four walks. Though Bradley has thrown six innings just once this season (16 starts), he'll likely be worth a look as a streaming option during his next outing, which is tentatively scheduled to come against the Tigers at Comerica Park.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Lasts five frames versus Orioles

    Bradley allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out six across five innings Sunday against the Orioles. He did not factor into the decision.

    Bradley gave up a run in the first and then a two-run blast to Gunnar Henderson in the second to put the Rays in a quick 3-0 hole. He went on to allow just one more baserunner after that frame but failed to make it past five innings, which is something he's done just once in 15 starts. The 22-year-old did register an impressive 34 percent whiff rate but also surrendered a home run for a sixth consecutive outing. He sits at a 5.30 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 95:22 K:BB over 71.1 innings. He's expected to face the Astros in Houston this weekend.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Fans nine in loss

    Bradley (5-6) took the loss Tuesday at Texas after he struck out nine and gave up two runs on five hits and two walks over five innings.

    Bradley entered Tuesday's contest having surrendered 16 runs across his past three starts, so his performance against the AL West-leading Rangers was an encouraging sight. The rookie right-hander gave up a solo homer to Marcus Semien in the third inning and continues to be hurt by the long ball with 12 home runs allowed through 14 starts. A matchup with the Orioles this weekend is likely next up for Bradley.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Struggles again Saturday

    Bradley (5-5) took the loss against Atlanta on Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four batters over five innings.

    Bradley made it through three perfect frames before surrendering four runs -- three of which came on a Sean Murphy homer -- in the fourth. Though he was able to complete another scoreless inning, the rough fourth was enough to send Bradley to his fifth loss. The rookie right-hander has hit a rough patch to close out the first half of the season, posting an 11.68 ERA, 2.11 WHIP and 9:4 K:BB across 12.1 frames over his past three starts. Bradley began his big-league career in fine fashion, but his recent struggles have him sitting on a poor 5.43 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over 61.1 frames heading into the All-Star break.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Chased early by Mariners

    Bradley yielded five runs on nine hits and a walk over 3.1 innings in Sunday's loss to Seattle. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    After serving up a solo homer to Eugenio Suarez in the second inning, Bradley coughed up four more runs in the third. It seemed like Bradley was settling into the MLB level with a 3.28 ERA over a five-start stretch but he's since been tagged with 11 earned runs over two outings. His season ERA has jumped to 5.11, though his 79:17 K:BB through 56.1 innings still looks impressive. The 22-year-old's next outing is projected to be a home matchup with Atlanta.
