SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Diamondbacks assigned top pitching prospect Archie Bradley to their minor league camp on Thursday.

The hard-throwing 21-year-old right-hander will start the season with Triple-A Reno.

Bradley was competing for the fifth spot in the D-backs’ rotation, which presumably will go to right-hander Randall Delgado.

Bradley was 2-1 with a 4.32 ERA in 8 1/3 innings this spring, striking out 10 and walking eight. He was a combined 14-5 with a 1.84 ERA with Class A Visalia and Double-A Mobile last season.
