Red Sox optioned OF Jackie Bradley to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Bradley has gone hitless in 11 at-bats in the majors this season. He has nothing left to prove in the minors, but the Red Sox simply have better options for their outfield at the moment. May 22 - 3:41 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sunday that Jackie Bradley will share time in right field with Shane Victorino (hamstring).

That's after Victorino returns from the disabled list on Monday, of course. Farrell noted that it won't be a strict platoon, so expect Victorino to still see some starts versus right-handers. It sounds like Bradley will get a long look, though, after getting off to a .343/.393/.465 start at Triple-A Pawtucket.

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

Bradley was up briefly with the big club last month but didn't appear in a game. He could see a good amount of playing time this time around if the Sox decide to limit Shane Victorino's (hamstring) starts against righties when he returns from the DL on Monday. Bradley has hit .343/.393/.465 at Triple-A this season.
May 10 - 9:55 AM

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

Bradley was only up for a day and didn't appear in a game. He returns to a .315/.383/.411 batting line at Pawtucket.

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

Bradley will provide some outfield depth with Shane Victorino (hamstring) on the disabled list. The 25-year-old has yet to produce in the majors, but he had a .315/.383/.411 batting line over his first 18 games with the PawSox this season.
Apr 28 - 3:12 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. entered Wednesday with a .367 average in 30 at-bats for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Bradley's hitting, or lack thereof, is one of the reasons he started the year in Pawtucket. A Gold Glove caliber outfielder, Bradley owns a paltry .196 average across 479 big league at-bats. If Bradley can at least be competent at the plate, he should be able to carve out a role for himself at the major league level. Of course, that's unlikely to happen in Boston with Daniel Nava, Shane Victorino, Allen Craig, Mookie Betts, Hanley Ramirez and Brock Holt all seeing time in the outfield.

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

Bradley has a nice overall skillset and hit really well this spring in the Grapefruit League, but the Red Sox have an extremely overcrowded outfield. Rusney Castillo is also headed to Pawtucket with Bradley.
Apr 2 - 3:55 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. doubled, singled and walked Saturday as the Red Sox and Pirates played to a 2-2 tie.

Bradley is hitting .345 with a 4/4 K/BB ratio in 29 at-bats this spring. Last year, he hit .198 with a 121/31 K/BB ratio in 384 at-bats for the Red Sox, which is obviously the more meaningful sample. However, it really seems as through Bradley's shorter swing is doing him some good. It's probably not going to earn him a spot on the Red Sox roster, but it might entice another team to give up a quality prospect for him.
Mar 21 - 4:32 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk versus the Rays on Tuesday.

Bradley is a candidate to be traded if someone steps up and makes a quality offer for him, but the Red Sox would rather stick him in Triple-A than give him away. As many questions as there are about his bat, he's still rather valuable because of his superb defense in center field.
Mar 10 - 4:22 PM

Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston cautions that it's not a given that the Red Sox will trade Jackie Bradley Jr.

The Red Sox are staring at an incredibly crowded outfield situation, so the logical assumption has been that they'd look to move Bradley who is ticketed to begin the season at Triple-A Pawtucket. He may be the best defensive outfielder that they have in their system though, and appears to still be in the team's long-term plans.

Peter Gammons reports that the Braves have called the Red Sox and "made it clear they have strong interest" in outfielder Jackie Bradley, Jr.

The Red Sox have a logjam in their outfield and it will be tough for Bradley to make an impact with Rusney Castillo projected to start in center field, so a change of scenery might be the best thing for him. The 24-year-old owns an ugly .196/.268/.280 batting line across his first 530 plate appearances in the majors, but he's a brilliant defender and would be a nice gamble for the rebuilding Braves. There's nothing to suggest that anything is close, but it's worth keeping an eye on.
Feb 18 - 12:31 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. has been working at the Red Sox spring training facility with assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez to rediscover his swing.

The goal is to get Bradley back to the swing path that made him so successful in the minor leagues, swinging downward to make sure he stays on top of the ball. With an incredibly crowded outfield situation in Boston, it's difficult to envision Bradley cracking the Opening Day roster unless he tears the cover off the ball this spring.

Red Sox recalled outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Bradley hit just .212/.246/.273 with 18 strikeouts in 66 at-bats following his Aug. 18 demotion to Pawtucket, which doesn't bode well for him getting much time in the Red Sox outfield now. He should definitely take a backseat to Mookie Betts in center the rest of the way.

Jackie Bradley, Jr. went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts Monday in his first game after his demotion to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Bradley was demoted earlier in the day, but he wanted to get right to work. While he was hitless in his first game, Pawtucket manager Kevin Boles said that he saw some "good signs." The 24-year-old has only batted .210/.288/.290 over 112 games with the Red Sox this season. He should rejoin the big club in September.

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

Bradley is a really good defensive outfielder, but he has batted just .216/.288/.290 in 387 plate appearances this season at the major league level. Mookie Betts has been called up in a corresponding roster move and should get everyday playing time down the stretch. Bradley will likely be back as outfield depth in September.
