A Quick Chad Bradford Update

Via FanGraphs, Bradford's gamelogs:

Date Team Opp IP TBF H HR SO BB
24-May TBR (A+) MIN 1 3 1 0 0 0
27-May TBR (A+) @PHI 1 4 1 0 0 0
30-May TBR (A+) @NYY 1 3 0 0 2 0
2-Jun TBR (AA) FLA 1 6 2 0 2 1
15-Jun TBR (AA) LAD 1 4 1 0 0 0
17-Jun TBR (AAA) PHI 1 4 1 0 1 0

 

Don't worry about the hits column, he's playing with weaker defense than the Rays offer. The encouraging, and probably obvious sign is Bradford's K/BB ratio. In recent years, Bradford's K/BB ratio has decayed, mostly due to a sudden decrease in strikeouts. Which doesn't make a ton of sense to me because nothing changed in Bradford's approach.

Also worth noting, Bradford's role in the movie adaptation of Moneyball will be filled by rapper/actor Mos Def.
