Sources confirmed that the Phillies and free agent reliever Archie Bradley reached a one-year deal worth $6 million. The transaction is subject to physical transaction.
Bradley is a 28-year-old right-handed man who started his career with the Diamondbacks in 2015 and then became their installer in 2017. He was sent to the Red Army and released a 1.17 ERA in the last month. The Phillies’ new head coach Caleb Cotham takes over from Cincinnati.
Bradley has a 2.95 ERA in 221 appearances in the past four seasons, mainly as a forward. After Greg Holland struggled, he saved 18 games for the Diamondbacks in 2019.
In the past season, Bradley’s fastball averaged 94.4 mph. Historically, he was mainly four-slit fastball and hockey, with some sinkers and change.
Since the last week of December, he is the third rescuer to join the Phillies. The first two deals of the new president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski were Rex’s left-hand rescuer Jose Alvarado and the Giants’ right-hander Sam · Sam Coonrod (Sam Coonrod).
