Angel’s right-handed reliever Archie Bradley is expected to miss at least 2-months of game time as he has fractured his elbow after his team’s outrageous brawl against the Mariners on Sunday. In the attempt to join the fracas, it does seem like the Angels have paid more for the consequences than the actual ‘WWE’ action on the pitch and the latest result only goes to justify the same.

As confirmed by head athletic trainer Mike Frostad, Archie Bradley is surely going to miss a couple of months as he works his way out with a fractured elbow. This is just adding salt to the wounds of the team as already interim manager, Phil Nevil along with four players and four coaches were suspended for their involvement in the massive fight on Sunday. Although Bradley did not play on Sunday or even Monday, yet decided to help his team out in the brawl.

The 29-year-old right-handed reliever was replaced by Chase Silseth. However, this would not be the first time Archie Bradley is missing some serious game-time for the Angeles. For those who are not aware, he even missed most of the action in the month of May due to a left abdominal strain but had posted a 2.70 ERA over 13 outings. He eventually made his return on May 25.

“With the way, he’s been throwing the ball recently and what he brings to the clubhouse, it’s a huge loss,” said acting manager Ray Montgomery spoke about Bradley’s miss. “In the short term, guys are going to have to step up. I think we’ve done a good job all year of picking up other guys. We’ll miss him, for sure, but the guys down there know what they need to do.”

Bradley Beal signed a one-year deal worth $3.75 million in the offseason. In some instances he has justified his price tag as well, looking at his stats, he has posted a 4.82 ERA with 15 strikeouts, seven walks and one homer allowed in 18 2/3 innings in 2022.

His overall time down could be a couple of months,” Frostad said. “It won’t have any long-term effects. He won’t even be in a cast. With this injury, the biggest thing is to keep it moving and keep that range in the elbow. It’s a well-documented injury in orthopaedics. It happens with a fall with an outstretched hand.
