BEFORE FAME

Brad was drafted in the 31st round by the Oakland A’s in 2002, but chose to return to Southwest Missouri State for his senior year.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Brad completed his first season in Miami in 2017 with a 1-4 record, 10 saves and 4.79 ERA (47.0IP/25ER). He was placed on the disabled list on June 22 and missed 31 games with a right back strain. After the July 28 trade of AJ Ramos to the New York Mets, Brad moved into closer role and proceeded to go nine-for-nine in save opportunities before suffering his first blown save on September 1 vs. Philadelphia. In the eight seasons from 2009-16, Brad was the only active reliever in Major League Baseball to have appeared in at least 60 games. He signed as a free agent with the Marlins on December 23, 2016 and is entering his 11th season in the Majors. From May 29, 2015 to June 20, 2016 with the Arizona Diamondbacks, he set a franchise record with 43 consecutive saves – the seventh longest such streak in Major League history. With Arizona, Brad compiled the lowest career ERA in franchise history among pitchers who have appeared in at least 100 games for the club (2.49) and made more appearances than any pitcher in Arizona history (348).

FUN FACT

Created his foundation, Pastime for Patriots, to support members of the United States military and their families.
