This past weekend, the Baltimore Orioles announced that right-hander Kyle Bradish will join the Double-A Bowie Baysox to begin a rehab assignment at some point during the middle of this week. The Baysox are set to begin a 6-game homestand against the Altoona Curve.

It was previously reported that Bradish had joined the High-A Aberdeen Ironbirds and would appear with them for to begin his rehab assignment. However, after returning to the Orioles for a bullpen session on Saturday, he will head to Prince George's Stadium instead to join Bowie.


Bradish, 27, is expected to get the start for one of the first three or four games of the series for Bowie. Neither the Baysox nor the Orioles have announced which game he will pitch. He is expected to go about an inning or two.


Bradish is excited to toe the rubber again, and he is treating his rehab stint as his Spring Training.


"It will be nice to face some other jerseys," Bradish told MASN. "Just working out some different mechanical things, but it will be nice to get into a game setting."


The Orioles are highly anticipating the return of Bradish, who was by far their best starting pitcher last season. He threw 168.2 innings while posting an amazing 2.83 ERA (3rd best in the American League) and 168 strikeouts. His fastball reached the upper-90s and he utilized a late-breaking wipe out slider. When healthy, the righty is one of the most lethal yet overlooked starters in the entire league. His return to the Orioles' rotation would be crucial for the team's success. Corbin Burnes and Grayson Rodriguez continue to eat successful and efficient innings, but the back end of the rotation has been hit hard lately in the form of Tyler Wells, Dean Kremer, and Cole Irvin.
