Broken Arrow product Archie Bradley won't start the year in the Arizona Diamondbacks' major league lineup, but he's close.

The Diamondbacks' Twitter account announced Thursday that Bradley will be reassigned to the team's minor league camp, with manager Kirk Gibson adding that Bradley is on the cusp of the bigs.



"He's close," Gibson said. "He's someone who can help us this year."

This year may be sooner rather than later, as the Diamondbacks will be without ace Patrick Corbin, who underwent season-ending elbow surgery this week.

Bradley, a 6-foot-4, 235-pound right-hander, was 2-1 with a 4.32 earned run average, 10 strikeouts and six walks in 8 1/3 innings in spring training.
