D-backs’ Archie Bradley throws extended spring game

Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley is starting to work his way back from shoulder tendinitis. Bradley threw an extended spring game on Thursday consisting of 54 pitches and 2 2/3 innings. Per MLB.com, Bradley spoke about his session:

"It was the first start of maybe one or two more rehab starts. I don't really know the plan. Just felt good to get back out there, face some hitters and get back into it.”

Bradley was outstanding in his first three starts this season before being hit with a line drive in his fourth outing which sent him to the DL. He wasn’t the same in four starts following his return, and then went back on the DL due to his shoulder issue on June 4.
