Watch Now:
Reports: Reds Trade For Archie Bradley
(2:56)

The Reds just prior to Monday’s MLB trade deadline acquired closer Archie Bradley from the Diamondbacks, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic

Bradley, 28, this season has pitched to a 4.22 ERA and 4.00 K/BB ratio in 10 2/3 innings for Arizona. Yes, the ERA is high, but the underlying indicators are strong. As well, a sample of just 10 2/3 innings means little. Since being converted into a full-time reliever prior to the 2017 season, Bradley — thanks an impressive fastball-knuckle curve combo — has a 3.01 ERA/148 ERA+ with 253 strikeouts in 228 innings. The right-hander isn’t eligible for free agency until after the 2021 season.

CBS Sports will have more to come on this story.
