Debut Details
September 3, in a 6-4 10-inning win against the Philadelphia Phillies. The fifth of six pitchers, he earned the win in, relief, tossing one perfect inning. Coming on to start the bottom of the ninth in relief of Jose Ramirez, Bradley struck out the first batter he faced, Tyler Goeddel, swinging, needing just three pitches to dispatch him. Freddy Galvis then grounded out to third before pinch-hitter Tommy Joseph flew out to left field to end the inning. The Braves scratched out a pair of runs in the top of the 10th and reliever Mauricio Cabrera notched the save to hand Bradley the victory in his debut. He threw just 12 pitches, nine of them for strikes.

Player Notes
While the former first-round pick of the Brewers may not have worked out as Milwaukee had planned, he’s done just fine for the Braves so far, thank you very much. Jedidiah Custer Bradley spent his first few seasons toiling at Brevard (High A) in the Brewers system before finally earning a promotion to Huntsville (their Double-A affiliate at the time) midway through 2014 after beginning the season at Brevard with a 5-2 record and 2.98 ERA in his first 10 starts at Brevard. He struggled in 2015, though, and a 9.00 ERA in 26 innings of relief at Colorado Springs (Triple-A) sent him to the bullpen to try to make adjustments. The issues continued with a 6.20 ERA at Biloxi to start 2016, but after his trade to the Braves, his new club shifted him back into a starting role and he responded with a 2.35 ERA at Mississippi and a 1.50 ERA in three starts at Gwinnett before his promotion.
