After being held back in extended spring training to start the season due to right shoulder soreness, Braden Shipley made his season debut Thursday night for Class A South Bend. The right-hander threw five scoreless innings and earned his first professional victory as South Bend defeated Quad Cities, 5-0.

Shipley, the D-backs' No. 2 prospect and No. 75 overall, struck out four batters and allowed five hits. He induced five groundouts and walked just one batter.

The D-backs selected Shipley out of Nevada with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft. He made 12 starts after signing, reaching South Bend in mid-August. He posted a 2.61 ERA in four regular-season starts for the Silver Hawks last season and then made two more starts during their run to the Midwest League championship series.
