Anaheim, CA – Angel Savior Archie Bradley He broke a bone in his right elbow while climbing a bunker during Los Angeles’ massive brawl with the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
Angels coach Mike Frost said Bradley will be out for at least one month. Bradley won’t start a four-week throwing program while his elbow heals, and it could be “two months,” according to Frostad.
Bradley’s injury is the second to result from a long fight at Angel Stadium: Mariners Catcher Louis Torrens On the list of injured people for 10 days on Monday with inflammation in the left shoulder.
Bradley slipped and fell off the guardrail when the commotion broke out in the second half right after the Angels opener Andrew Wantz hit seattle Jesse Winker with the playing field. Bradley didn’t play on Sunday or in Los Angeles’ win over the White Sox on Monday night.
Wantz also threw behind the field Julio Rodriguez In the first run on Sunday, one night after Seattle night Eric Swanson Throw the pitch near the head Mike Trout In the ninth half. Six players and managers were fired after the fight, and 12 suspensions were delivered on Monday to players, coaches and team members.
Heavy bearded Bradley is in his first season with the Angels, who signed him last March to boost their perpetually poor fortune. He’s 0-1 with a 4.82 ERA and two saves in 21 games for Los Angeles, but he did spend some time on the injured list earlier this season due to an abdominal strain.
Angels interim manager Phil Nevin began his 10-match ban on Monday. On Tuesday, he declined to give his opinion on MLB’s handling of the altercation and subsequent suspension.
But Nevin has found a silver lining: He will be eligible to return for Game Three of Los Angeles’ four-game series in Baltimore next weekend. Nevin’s son Tyler plays for the Orioles, and Nevin will be able to enjoy two games as a fan.
