Orioles' Bradish off IL, to make debut vs. Yanks

Baltimore Orioles right-hander Kyle Bradish was reinstated from the 15-day injured list to make his season debut in Thursday’s game against the New York Yankees.

The Orioles designated right-hander Yohan Ramirez for assignment to make room for Bradish, who began the season on the IL with a sprained UCL in his pitching elbow.

Bradish, 27, finished fourth in the American League Cy Young Award voting last season after posting a 12-7 record with a 2.83 ERA in 30 starts. He recorded 168 strikeouts in 168 2/3 innings.

Bradish owns a 16-14 record and a 3.68 ERA in 53 career starts since making his debut with the Orioles in 2022.

Ramirez, who turns 29 on Monday, is 0-1 with an 8.74 ERA in eight appearances this season with the New York Mets and Orioles.
