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. Dec 11 - 5:05 PM

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.

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 MLB.com reported last month that the Giants were interested in Bradley.

MLB.com'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 clubbed a three-run homer in the seventh inning on Sunday as the Red Sox topped the Astros in Game 3 of the ALDS.

Bradley's blast that hit off of the glove of Astros' outfielder Josh Reddick, put the icing on the cake in a six-run seventh inning and put the Red Sox ahead 10-3. He was just 1-for-4 on the afternoon, but that one hit proved to be mighty.

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.

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

It's a rare benching versus a righty for Bradley, who is in the midst of a 1-for-23 slide at the plate. Rajai Davis will handle center field.
Sep 29 - 3:08 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer in a loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday.

The homer is Bradley Jr's 17th, and it was a two-run shot that tied the game at two in the top of the sixth inning. Despite some highs and lows, Bradley has put up a respectable .259/.336/.432 line.

Jackie Bradley is back in the Red Sox lineup Wednesday against Oakland.

Bradley left Tuesday's game after the sixth inning when he showed general "discomfort" after making a play on defense. He's hitting sixth and playing center field.
Sep 13 - 4:20 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. had a two-run homer and an RBI groundout against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Bradley had been 2-for-15 with no RBI in four games since coming off the disabled list on Saturday. The homer was his 15th in 408 at-bats for the season. He's not performing like he did last year, but with is defense, he's still plenty valuable to the Red Sox as a league-average hitter.
Sep 6 - 11:28 PM

Red Sox activated OF Jackie Bradley from the 10-day disabled list.

Bradley has been sidelined since August 23 due to his thumb injury. Prior to landing on the shelf, the 27-year-old was hitting .262/.343/.432 with 14 homers, 54 RBI and six stolen bases.

Jackie Bradley (thumb) took early batting practice on Tuesday.

Beat reporter Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe expects Bradley to return when first eligible on Saturday. He landed on the DL with a sprained thumb last week. Andrew Benintendi has been filling in for JBJ in center field with Rajai Davis and Chris Young splitting time in left.

Jackie Bradley (finger) will wear a splint for the next 5-7 days.

Bradley was placed on the 10-day disabled list earlier on Wednesday with a sprained left thumb sustained in Thursday's game against the Indians. X-rays on his finger returned negative, but an MRI revealed a sprain in the thumb -- thankfully no structural damage, though. The Red Sox expect that the outfielder will be able to return before the end of the season, but as of now, there is no concrete timetable as to when he might be ready to rejoin the Sox.

Red Sox placed OF Jackie Bradley on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained left thumb.

Bradley's left thumb got bent back awkwardly as he slid into home plate on Tuesday night in Cleveland. X-rays came back negative, but an MRI taken Wednesday morning in Boston revealed the sprain. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Andrew Benintendi is likely to take over in center field, with Chris Young and Brock Holt sharing time in left.
