Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated on WEEI's "Hot Stove Show" on Tuesday night that Jackie Bradley is penciled in as the starting center fielder for 2016.
What Bradley brings defensively can't be questioned, so the Red Sox are hoping that the progress he showed with the bat down the stretch is for real. The 25-year-old continues to pop up in trade rumors, but assuming he stays put this winter, Farrell envisions having Mookie Betts in right field and Rusney Castillo in left. Nov 25 - 10:18 AM

According to WEEI's Rob Bradford, the Cubs and Royals have "surfaced as teams" with interest in acquiring Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley.

Bradley, Mookie Betts, and Rusney Castillo seemingly emerged as a long-term outfield trio for the Red Sox in 2015, but new club president Dave Dombrowski could decide to try something a little different. Bradley is a tremendous and dynamic defender in the outfield, but he was hitting over his head this past season to the tune of an .832 OPS. Bradley's OPS in 530 plate appearances between 2013-2014 was .548. Dombrowski could look to sell high on the 25-year-old and add a more powerful presence for the left field job this winter.

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 1-for-2 with two walks and a two-run home run as the Red Sox won on Monday against the Yankees, 5-1.

Bradley bolstered the lead to 4-1 in the seventh inning with a two-run shot off of Ivan Nova. The outfielder went into September on a heater, but had a paltry .103 average (6-for-58) between September 8-27. On the season, Bradley is hitting .254/.341/.517 with 10 home runs and 42 RBI.
Sep 28 - 10:17 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a game-tying two-run homer in the top of the ninth inning as the Red Sox rallied to defeat the Blue Jays 7-6 on Saturday in Toronto.

Boston poured on three more runs after his blast in the top of the ninth, providing enough cushion to stave off a comeback attempt from the Jays in the bottom of the ninth. Bradley also had an RBI double in the top of the seventh inning. It's been a frustrating 2015 for the Red Sox, but Bradley has emerged as a clear difference-maker with both his bat and glove. Rusney Castillo and Mookie Betts are showing great promise too. It should be a tremendous outfield trio for a long time.
Sep 19 - 7:30 PM

Jackie Bradley, Jr. had another monster day at the plate Monday against the Blue Jays, going 4-for-4 with a home run, four RBI, and two runs scored.

Bradley had an RBI single in the fourth inning before launching a two-run home run in sixth and a ground-rule double in the seventh. The 25-year-old has been on a ridiculous tear dating back to early August and currently holds an eight-game hitting streak. He can't be ignored in mixed fantasy leagues any longer.
Sep 7 - 5:32 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 1-for-4 with a two-run triple as the Red Sox completed a series sweep of the Phillies, winning 6-2 on Sunday.

Bradley made it 4-0 when he hit a triple to right field, bringing in two runs. He promptly scored on a Mookie Betts single. The 25-year-old is on a seven-game hitting streak and has been white-hot since August 9, batting .418 (33-for-79) with 12 doubles, four triples, six home runs, and 28 RBI.
Sep 6 - 4:57 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. clubbed his seventh home run of the season as the Red Sox outlasted the Phillies 7-5 on Friday evening.

His solo shot off opposing starter Adam Morgan increased the Red Sox advantage to 4-2 in the seventh inning. He also drew a walk and scored a pair of runs in the contest, finishing the night 1-for-3. Bradley has continued to shine in the second half and is now slashing an impressive .287/.369/.581 with seven homers and 28 RBI on the season.
Sep 4 - 11:04 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's 10-inning win over the Mets.

Bradley homered with two outs in the seventh, his sixth long ball of the season. The Red Sox optioned the 25-year-old outfielder to Triple-A in early July before calling him back up on July 29. The Triple-A stint seems to have done Bradley well, as he entered Friday's game hitting .328/.418/.701 with four homers and 20 RBI in the month of August. While there's no guarantee he'll continue to tear the cover off the ball, wise owners in deeper AL-only formats should consider riding this hot streak if he's available for pickup.
Aug 29 - 12:03 AM

Jackie Bradley Jr. delivered a three-run homer off Corey Kluber on Wednesday.

This after he was held out of Tuesday's starting lineup. The Red Sox need to play Bradley regularly the rest of the way to figure out whether he should be a part of their plans for 2016. Maybe tonight's homer was far from a blast and perhaps Saturday's game was a big old fluke, but he's currently sporting an .866 OPS in 89 at-bats this season.
Aug 19 - 11:01 PM

Jackie Bradley is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

Hanley Ramirez, Mookie Betts, and Rusney Castillo will start in the outfield. Bradley will continue to be shuffled in the lineup.
Aug 18 - 3:25 PM

Jackie Bradley had an absolutely epic day at the plate as the Red Sox demolished the Mariners 22-10 on Saturday, collecting five extra-base hits in six at-bats.

Bradley launched a two-run homer off Felix Hernandez in the second inning, giving the Red Sox an early 3-0 lead. He then capped off the offensive explosion with a two-run shot off backup catcher Jesus Sucre in the eighth inning. Bradley also doubled three times, finishing the amazing afternoon 5-for-6 with five runs scored and seven RBI. He became the first player in Red Sox history to log five extra-base hits in one game, and his 14 total bases were the most of anyone in baseball in a game this season.
Aug 15 - 4:57 PM

Jackie Bradley went 2-for-3 with a walk, a triple, a home run, and five RBI to help the Red Sox beat the Tigers on Sunday.

Bradley drew a bases-loaded walk in the second inning, clubbed a solo home run in the seventh, and hit a three-run triple in the eighth. The 25-year-old has been abysmal at the plate, so Sunday's performance serves as a prominent outlier in his 25 games. Bradley owns a .148/.280/.279 triple-slash line with two home runs and nine RBI.
Aug 9 - 4:36 PM

Red Sox recalled OF Jackie Bradley from Triple-A Pawtucket.

He'll handle center field while Mookie Betts (concussion) is on the shelf. Bradley has struggled in his time in the majors but has batted .305/.382/.472 with nine homers and four steals at Pawtucket this season.
Jul 29 - 3:49 PM

Red Sox optioned OF Jackie Bradley to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Bradley had for hits -- including a home run -- over 19 at-bats in his most recent stint with the big club. He's replaced on the roster by Shane Victorino, who is back from the disabled list.
Jul 3 - 4:58 PM

Red Sox recalled OF Jackie Bradley from Triple-A Pawtucket.

JBJ should see regular starts in right field, at least until Shane Victorino returns from the disabled list. Bradley has been dreadful offensively in parts of three seasons at the major league level, but the rangy 25-year-old boasts a .322/.398/.468 slash line this summer at Triple-A. Maybe he's finally ready to put it all together.
