Diamondbacks prospect Archie Bradley would probably already be in the majors if not for being shut down with an elbow injury in late April, but the 21-year-old right-hander is healthy enough to make a minor-league rehab start yesterday.

It wasn’t an official regular season game, but Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Bradley tossed three innings in a rookie-ball exhibition versus Reds minor leaguers. According to Piecoro he allowed one run, struck out three, and was clocked at 93 miles per hour, which is very good news.

Bradley will likely be assigned to a regular minor-league team–presumably Triple-A–later this month, and then if he pitches well there while staying healthy the clock on his MLB debut can begin ticking again. Coming into the season Baseball America ranked Bradley as their ninth-best prospect.

      I hope that was not a sexist remark.

    And Towers is giddy because he has another piece to trade for more grit and grime.
