  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Out with back injury

    Texas placed Bradford on the 15-day injured list Sunday with lower back soreness, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.comreports.

    Bradford earned a longer look in Texas' starting rotation after he began the season 3-0 with a 1.40 ERA, 0.62 WHIP and 17:2 K:BB over 19.1 innings, but he'll now be unavailable due to the back issue. Michael Lorenzen will take the open spot in the rotation, and he will be starting Monday at Detroit.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Improves to 3-0

    Bradford (3-0) earned the win against Oakland on Wednesday, allowing an unearned run on five hits and one walk while striking out seven batters over 6.2 innings.

    Bradford gave up a run on two hits in the first frame, though the tally was unearned. The southpaw breezed from there, at one point retiring 18 of 20 batters before running out of gas in the seventh inning when he allowed a two-out single followed by a walk. Reliever Yerry Rodriguez was able to get the final out to keep Bradford's line clean of any earned runs, and the latter ended up taking the victory to move into an early tie for the league lead in wins with three. Bradford was initially expected to depart the rotation once Michael Lorenzen (neck) was built up enough to slide in as a starter, but it could be difficult for Texas to make that move now given Bradford's outstanding beginning to the campaign. Through 19.1 innings, he's posted a 1.40 ERA, 0.62 WHIP and 17:2 K:BB.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Fires gem Friday

    Bradford (2-0) yielded one run on two hits over 7.2 frames Friday, striking out four and earning a win over the Astros.

    Bradford dominated Houston on Friday, spinning seven shutout frames before the Astros finally pushed a run home in the eighth inning. The 26-year-old wasn't expected to last long in the Rangers' rotation but he may be forcing them to reconsider. Through two starts, he's posted an impressive 10:1 K:BB with a 2.13 ERA over 12.2 innings.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Picks up win Saturday

    Bradford (1-0) earned a victory Saturday versus the Cubs, permitting two runs on three hits and a walk over five frames. He struck out six.

    Bradford left a fastball up in the second inning to Dansby Swanson, who deposited it over the left-field wall for a two-run homer. That wound up being the only damage against the left-hander, as he needed just 76 pitches to cruise through his five frames. Bradford is expected to lose his spot in the Rangers' rotation once Michael Lorenzen (neck) is deemed ready, but he should get at least one more turn.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Set for Saturday start

    Bradford will start Saturday's game against the Cubs, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports.

    Bradford is in the Rangers' rotation as Michael Lorenzen (neck) builds up his workload. Barring an additional injury to the team's pitching staff, Bradford will shift to a relief role or be optioned to Triple-A Round Rock after a few turns as a starter. The left-hander made his big-league debut in 2023, posting a 5.30 ERA across 56 innings, though he managed a more impressive 1.21 WHIP and 51:12 K:BB.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Will make at least one start

    Rangers general manager Chris Young said Friday that Bradford will make at least one start early on in the season, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports.

    Bradford is expected to lose his spot in Texas' rotation following the addition of Michael Lorenzen, but the club has yet to determine when Lorenzen will be ready to take the mound. Even if he's not part of the first turn through the rotation, the left-handed Bradford will likely be needed when the Rangers play 17 days in a row in the middle of April. After that, it's not clear whether the plan is to shift him to the bullpen or keep him stretched out in the Triple-A Round Rock rotation.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Bumped from rotation

    Bradford looks to no longer have a spot in the Rangers' rotation following the addition of Michael Lorenzen, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    After signing earlier this week, Lorenzen confirmed in an interview Friday that he will join the Rangers' rotation. Bradford had previously been named the team's fifth starter but now could shift to the bullpen or Triple-A Round Rock, although it's possible he will be needed for a start or two if Lorenzen isn't deemed ready yet.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Confirmed for rotation

    Rangers general manager Chris Young said Saturday that Bradford will begin the season in the starting rotation, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The 26-year-old lefty entered camp as the favorite to open the season as Texas' No. 5 starter, and his 2.45 ERA and 9:2 K:BB over 11 spring innings likely helped him secure the role. Bradford worked as a swingman as a rookie last season and had a 5.30 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 51:12 K:BB across 20 outings (eight starts) overall, though he pitched much better in his 12 relief outings with a 2.82 ERA and a 0.72 WHIP in 22.1 frames.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Keeps getting outs

    Bradford allowed one run on five hits and struck out two over four innings in Sunday's spring start against the Cubs.

    Bradford made his fourth spring appearance and fourth start. He's allowed three runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out nine over 11 innings. He doesn't blow hitters away and needs to command, use deception and control the zone in order to be successful. The left-hander told Kennedi Landry of MLB.com that he left too many pitches over the heart of the plate, which led to loud contact. He's expected to be the Rangers' fifth starter.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Looks good again

    Bradford allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out four over three innings in Monday's spring start against the Angels.

    Bradford, making his second Cactus League start, allowed a two-out run on a double and a walk in the first inning then retired the final seven batters faced. That includes fanning the side in the second inning. Bradford has done nothing in two spring starts to mar his bid to become the No. 5 starter.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Logs second spring appearance

    Bradford allowed one hit and one walk while striking out two over two scoreless innings during Wednesday's spring start against the Dodgers.

    Bradford made his second Cactus League start in a quest to claim the fifth spot in the rotation. To that end, he's reintroduced a curveball to his repertoire to go along with a four-seamer, slider and changeup. "It's just to have something to steal strikes with," Bradford said. "It was a good pitch for me [in college], so I'm trying to get back to basically figuring out how to do that again." Or, if the rotation doesn't work out for Bradford, the lefty could land a bullpen spot. He pitched in both roles in 2023, including five relief appearances during Texas' postseason run, when he allowed one run over 7.2 innings.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Touched for run in spring debut

    Bradford allowed a run on two hits and struck out one over two innings in Friday's spring start against the Royals.

    Bradford, who is the leading contender to be fifth starter, was the lone Ranger to throw multiple innings. The right-hander followed Dane Dunning, who pitched a perfect first inning. Bradford ceded a two-out solo home run in the second inning before a 1-2-3 third inning. He may open the season in the rotation, but it's not expected to be a full-season assignment. Texas has three injured starters due back at various points during the season. Additionally, Bradford's track record -- 6.95 ERA, .884 OPS, 1.6 HR/9 over 33.2 innings as a starter in 2023 -- suggests the back end of the Rangers' rotation could be in flux.

  • Rangers' Cody Bradford: Will pitch Friday

    Bradford is set to follow Dane Dunning in the Rangers' Cactus League opener against the Royals on Friday, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports.

    The left-hander made his MLB debut in 2023 after spending time with Triple-A Round Rock. He bounced between the minors and majors during the regular season, and he worked as both a starter and reliever with the big club. Bradford finished last season with a 4-3 record for Texas while accruing a 5.30 ERA, 51 strikeouts and 12 walks over 56 innings. He's looking to lock down a spot at the back end of the Rangers' starting rotation during spring training.
