Player Outlook
The manner in which Kyle Bradish finished 2022 teased an impending breakout, but no one expected the fourth-lowest ERA among qualifiers. Granted, he benefited from a .270 BABIP and 79.1% left-on-base mark, but Bradish's 18.5 K-BB% was 18th among qualified starters. The major difference from the previous season was Bradish threw fewer four-seamers while upping sinker usage as well as adding velocity and spin to his curveball. The cumulative effects generated more grounders and swinging strikes. However, his ascent to the top of the Baltimore rotation suffered a setback in February when it was reported that Bradish had been diagnosed with a sprained UCL in his right elbow. While the plan is to go the rest-and-rehab route, the threat of Tommy John surgery will hang in the air like a dark cloud. The Orioles are already saying that he will miss the start of the season, though Bradish is expected to start a throwing program relatively early on in camp.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: First rehab start coming Tuesday

    Bradish (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Tuesday. It had been reported that Bradish was set to start a rehab assignment this week, and now the exact day and location has been revealed. He's slated for 2-to-3 innings and/or 40-to-50 pitches Tuesday, per Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com. The right-hander's rehab from a partial UCL tear has come along as well as could be expected, but it's basically the start of spring training for him, so he could need most, if not all, of his 30-day rehab window before rejoining the Orioles' rotation.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Rehab start on tap

    Bradish (elbow) said Sunday that he's set to begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Bowie around the middle of the week, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports. "Kind of treating [the rehab assignment] as my spring training, just working on some different mechanical things," Bradish said. Bradish said he experienced no setbacks with his right elbow nor noticed any downturn in his velocity while throwing bullpen sessions and facing hitters in a live batting practice session this past week, so he'll move on to the final phase of his recovery program for his UCL sprain. Because he didn't pitch at all in spring training after he was diagnosed with the injury in mid-February, Bradish will presumably need at least three rehab outings or simulated games to get stretched back out. He should be ready to return from the 15-day injured list to make his 2024 debut with the Orioles in the first or second week of May.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Throwing bullpen session

    Bradish (elbow) is throwing a bullpen session Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. He threw a live batting practice session Thursday, so the fact he's throwing again suggests all went well and he is continuing his slow ramp up. Manager Brandon Hyde said after Bradish's bullpen session that the right-hander will embark on a rehab assignment in "the middle of next week," likely with Double-A Bowie.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Heading out on rehab assignment

    Bradish (elbow) will join High-A Aberdeen on Tuesday and begin a rehab assignment there soon, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. It's hard to have any level of confidence regarding the health of a pitcher's elbow given what's happened around baseball recently, but Bradish's recovery since being diagnosed with a partial UCL tear has gone as well as can be expected. Given that he missed all of spring training, he would figure to need most, if not all, of his 30-day rehab window before rejoining the Orioles' rotation.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Continuing rehab program

    Bradish (elbow) is headed to Sarasota on Saturday to continue his throwing rehab program, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Bradish threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Friday after being placed on the team's 15-day injured list Thursday. There's no exact timeline for his return, but Bradish was able to utilize all of his pitches during his throwing session, and GM Mike Elias said previously that he expected Bradish back early in the first half. With the Orioles in 2023, Bradish went 12-7 over 30 starts while recording a 2.83 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 168:44 K:BB over 168.2 innings.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Goes on 15-day IL

    The Orioles placed Bradish (elbow) on the 15-day injured list Thursday. The fact that Bradish is opening the season on the 15-day IL rather than the 60-day IL supports the notion that the Orioles are hopeful the 27-year-old will avoid a longer-term absence to begin the season while he recovers from a right UCL sprain. Bradish remains likely to miss all of April, but since he resumed throwing bullpen sessions more than two weeks ago, the right-hander is seemingly on pace to pitch at some point in May, barring any setbacks in the ramp-up process.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Elbow responding well

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Tuesday that Bradish's right elbow is responding "well right now" to the pitcher's throwing program, Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports. Bradish resumed mound work last Wednesday after weeks of flat-ground throwing. While the right-hander has thrown almost all fastballs, Hyde admitted that Bradish "might have spun a couple breaking balls," as well. It remains relatively early on in Bradish's rehab from a partially torn UCL, but so far things have progressed as well as can be expected.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Extends out to 140 feet

    Bradish (elbow) played catch from 140 feet Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Bradish noted afterward that his right elbow still feels good and also added that 140 feet is about the maximum distance from which he usually plays catch. That could indicate he'll be cleared to throw from a mound soon, although it has not yet been revealed when that will happen. Bradish is working his way back from a partial UCL tear in his pitching elbow and will begin the season on the injured list, but he remains hopeful of avoiding surgery.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Extending to 90 feet

The right-hander extended his workouts to 75 feet earlier this week and will continue stretching out his throwing distance.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Bouncing back well from catch

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Thursday that Bradish (elbow) has been bouncing back well after playing catch, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Working his way back from a partial UCL tear in his right elbow, Bradish played catch from 60 feet late last week before expanding to 90 feet Tuesday. It's baby steps for now, but Hyde said the right-hander is "progressing nicely." It's not clear when Bradish might be cleared for mound work, but the Orioles will proceed cautiously.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Plays catch from 90 feet

    Bradish (elbow) played catch from 90 feet Tuesday, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

The right-hander will begin the season on the injured list and it's up in the air as to when he might be game-ready, but the hope is that the rest and rehab route will work.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Diagnosed with sprained UCL

    Bradish will open the season on the injured list after being diagnosed with a UCL sprain in his right elbow, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports. Bradish has been given a platelet-rich plasma injection and will begin a throwing program Friday. The hope is that the right-hander will be able to recover with rest and rehab, but eventual Tommy John surgery is always the fear when a UCL sprain is involved. Bradish had a breakout 2023 campaign with the Orioles, collecting a 2.83 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 168:44 K:BB over 168.2 innings covering 30 starts.

    Bradish will start Saturday in Game 1 of the ALDS versus the Rangers, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

That includes a 2.34 ERA in the second half and a 16-inning scoreless streak to end his regular season. The Rangers have not yet announced a Game 1 starter, but it's expected to be Dane Dunning. Grayson Rodriguez will get the ball in Game 2 for the O's.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Short start on tap

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Eight scoreless innings in win

    Bradish (12-7) earned the win Tuesday, allowing three hits and two walks over eight scoreless innings in a 1-0 win over Washington. He struck out four. Bradish saved his longest outing of the campaign for what is likely to be the righty's final start of the 2023 regular season, shutting out the Nationals for eight innings thanks in large part to the 14 groundball outs he induced. In 10 starts since the beginning of August, the 27-year-old has gone 6-1 with a 2.15 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 68:16 K:BB across 62.2 innings. Bradish took a big step forward in his sophomore season, improving in every major pitching category and finishing with a 12-7 record, 2.86 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, 163:43 K:BB and 49.3 percent groundball rate, currently the eighth-highest in MLB among qualified starters.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Excellent in no-decision

    Bradish did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two hits and two walks over six scoreless innings against the Astros. He struck out nine. Bradish has continued to impress down the stretch, going 5-1 with a 2.47 ERA in nine outings since the start of August. However, he'd come up short of a win Wednesday, as the Astros would rally to score twice against Baltimore's bullpen. Overall, Bradish is 11-7 with a 3.01 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 159:41 K:BB across 28 starts (158.2 innings) in his second big-league season.

With John Means (elbow) set to join the rotation soon, Bradish will likely get an extra day of rest before his next start, which figures to come at home next week against the Rays.
