Archie Bradley agrees to one-year, $6M deal with Philadelphia Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies agreed to a one-year, $6 million deal - pending a physical - with right-handed relief pitcher Archie Bradley on Thursday, according to multiple reports. 

Bradley allowed four hits and one run while striking out six without a walk in his 7 2/3 regular-season innings with the Cincinnati Reds after they acquired him with cash from the Arizona Diamondbacks last Aug. 31 for Stuart Fairchild and Josh VanMeter.

Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher Archie Bradley (23) delivers in the eighth inning of a baseball game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2020, at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Reds won, 1-0.

Bradley took the loss in the Atlanta Braves' 1-0 win against the Reds in 13 innings in Game 1 of the 2020 National League Wild Card Series, allowing singles to Nick Markakis and Austin Riley to set up Freddie Freeman's game-winning hit off of Amir Garrett, who relieved Bradley with one out in the 13th.

The Reds non-tendered Bradley in December, making him a free agent.

The Phillies didn't announce the deal Thursday night, but Bradley tweeted a celebratory, Philadelphia-themed GIF:
