Date:'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.

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 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.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Red Sox have let several teams know that Jackie Bradley, Jr. is available via trade.

The Red Sox are looking to add some power to their lineup, so they are keeping an open mind about the composition of their outfield. If Bradley is moved, the Red Sox could slide Andrew Benintendi to center field. Bradley dropped off offensively in 2017, but he remains a brilliant defensive center fielder. He's under team control through 2020. Jon Morosi of reported last month that the Giants were interested in Bradley.
Mon, Dec 11, 2017 09:29:00 AM's Jon Morosi reports that the Giants have interest in trading for Jackie Bradley.

Bradley is one "among many outfield options (the Giants) are currently considering," Morosi adds. They've also been connected to Giancarlo Stanton. Trading Bradley would be a hit to the Red Sox' defense, but they could move Mookie Betts to center field and add a big bat like Stanton or J.D. Martinez at a corner outfield spot. Bradley is under team control through 2020 and would give the Giants a big boost defensively in center field over the declining Denard Span.

Jackie Bradley delivered a pair of RBI singles in Friday's loss to the Astros.

They weren't cheapies, either. Bradley really had to battle Dallas Keuchel in the second inning before driving one up the middle to plate a run, and he added another RBI single off of closer Ken Giles in the ninth. Unfortunately for the Red Sox, that's all they were able to muster. Boston has lost 8-2 in each of the first two games of the ALDS.
