Red Sox manager Alex Cora said in an interview on WEEI on Wednesday that Jackie Bradley will not be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket when Dustin Pedroia (knee) is activated.
Bradley is sporting an ugly .176/.273/.260 batting line on the season, but the Red Sox want to keep his elite defense on the field and they expect him to eventually get going offensively, as well. The 28-year-old has been a streaky hitter during his career but has yet to get hot this year. May 23 - 2:51 PM

Jackie Bradley is not in Monday's lineup against the Athletics.

The scuffling outfielder will take a seat with left-hander Sean Manaea on the hill. Bradley is just 3-for-30 (.100) so far this month. Andrew Benintendi will start in center field while J.D. Martinez plays left and Blake Swihart serves as the DH. Of course, Manaea threw a no-hitter in his last start against Boston last month.

Jackie Bradley is out of the Red Sox' lineup for the third straight day Friday.

Bradley is in a 5-for-50 funk at the plate that's dropped his season line to .173/.264/.264. The Red Sox are again going with J.D. Martinez in the outfield and the hot-hitting Mitch Moreland at first base while Bradley sits.
May 11 - 3:31 PM

Jackie Bradley is not in the Red Sox's lineup Thursday against the Yankees.

It will be his second straight absence. Bradley remains a Gold Glove-caliber center fielder but his bat has fallen silent this year as he's hit just .173 with two homers and 31 strikeouts in 110 at-bats. Mookie Betts will slide over to center field with J.D. Martinez drawing the start in right. As good as he is on defense, Bradley will struggle for playing time if he doesn't start hitting.
May 10 - 6:13 PM

Jackie Bradley was back in the lineup Friday in Oakland and he finished 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk.

The outfielder has found his power stroke on this California road trip, going 5-for-13 with a double, two homers and five RBI since the West Coast swing kicked off on April 17. He has started off slowly, but is starting to round into form. Since he struggles with left-handed pitching, he might take a seat on Saturday against LHP Sean Manaea. Even if he starts he isn't a recommended option in DFS play.

Jackie Bradley is not in the Red Sox's lineup Thursday against the Angels.

Andrew Benintendi, who got the night off on Wednesday, will start in center field and bat second against Halos right-hander Nick Tropeano. Bradley has gotten off to a quiet start offensively, batting only .228 with one homer and three RBI this year.
Apr 19 - 6:20 PM

Jackie Bradley went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 10-1 road blowout of the Angels.

Bradley has been scuffling this season, but he has picked it up over the past seven outings. Since a mental day off on April 8 the outfielder is 9-for-26 (.346) with a double, a homer and three RBI to raise his average from .115 to .231. He'll look to continue the improvement in Wednesday's game against LHP Tyler Skaggs.
Apr 18 - 3:16 AM

Jackie Bradley went 3-for-4 and scored a pair of runs in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

All three hits were singles. He scored on a Mookie Betts double in the fifth inning, then took advantage of an Aroldis Chapman wild pitch to dash home in the ninth inning. Bradley had only four hits on the season prior to today and is now sporting a .206 batting average with no homers, no RBI and six runs scored in the first two weeks of the season. His excellent defense in center field will keep him in the lineup despite his current slump at the plate.
Apr 11 - 11:20 PM

Jackie Bradley is not in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Bradley is off to a 3-for-26 start this season, so it's probably a good time for a breather. Andrew Benintendi will slide over to center field, J.D. Martinez will play left and Mitch Moreland will handle first base while Hanley Ramirez moves into the designated hitter spot.
Apr 8 - 9:55 AM

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Thursday, lowering his spring average to .184.

Bradley isn't striking out much -- just six times in 43 plate appearances -- but the hits aren't dropping yet. He'll be hitting low in the Red Sox order this year, taking a chunk out of his fantasy upside.
Mar 22 - 6:26 PM

Jackie Bradley went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's 4-3 Grapefruit League win over the Rays.

He singled and scored in the first inning, then added a double in the fourth frame. Bradley's performance took a dip last year when he slashed .243/.323/.402 with 17 home runs and 63 RBI. He is expected to again be the starter in center field for the Red Sox despite being the subject of trade rumors after the signing of J.D. Martinez.
Feb 24 - 6:31 PM

MLB.com's Jon Morosi reports that Jackie Bradley is "unlikely" to be traded following the Red Sox' signing of J.D. Martinez.

Martinez might play some in the outfield, but the Red Sox plan to use him mostly as a designated hitter. That will allow them to keep their ultra-talented outfield of Andrew Benintendi, Bradley and Mookie Betts intact. Bradley's name has popped up in trade rumors during the offseason, but Boston has denied ever looking to move him.
Feb 19 - 10:00 PM

Red Sox and OF Jackie Bradley avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.1 million contract.

Bradley was arbitration-eligible for the second time. He hit .245/.323/.402 with 17 homers last season.
Jan 12 - 1:32 PM

Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Monday that reports of the team making Jackie Bradley available via trade are "not accurate."

"I don't know where those rumors have started but they're not accurate," Dombrowski said. It's a notable denial but doesn't necessarily mean anything, as the Red Sox can say they're not shopping Bradley but still be willing to trade him for the right return. The Royals and Giants are two teams that reportedly have interest in the outfielder. Bradley is under team control through 2020.

Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that the Royals continue to show interest in Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley.

Bradford cautions that he's "not sure there's a match" given Boston's needs. Still, the club is at least listening to offers for their center fielder. The Royals are looking at him as a replacement with Lorenzo Cain likely to land a lucrative contract on the open market.
