Jackie Bradley's offensive woes continued in Friday's loss to the Yankees, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout.
Bradley's transition to hitting at the Major League level hasn't gone quite as swimmingly as the Red Sox had hoped. With Friday's rough night, he's hitting a paltry .209/.289/.298 with limited power and would best be served honing his skills in the minor leagues. Jun 27 - 10:59 PM

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Tuesday that Jackie Bradley is "the right guy to be our center fielder."

It comes after Bradley was benched for a second straight game following a string of 17 consecutive starts. Bradley's .580 OPS ranks last among all American League outfielders who qualify for the batting title, but the Red Sox love his defense and think he'll improve at the plate.
Jun 11 - 9:06 AM

Jackie Bradley Jr. had a rough day at the plate in Friday's loss to the Tigers, going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts.

That pushes his season line to a disturbing .200/.282/.294 to go along with one homer and 20 RBI. He's clearly over-matched at the Major League level at the moment, but with the Red Sox current injury woes they simply don't have a better alternative.
Jun 6 - 10:00 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 2-for-4 with an RBI double versus the Braves on Wednesday.

This after he went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a stolen base on Tuesday. It's too early to call it a surge, but it can't be a bad sign. The only other time this year that he had back-to-back multihit games was on April 7-8.
May 28 - 10:50 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 0-for-3 from the bottom of the Boston lineup on Thursday.

With neither Bradley nor Grady Sizemore hitting, the Red Sox might do something to address their outfield situation soon. Sending down Bradley would just put more of a load on Sizemore, but it still might help the offense to get Daniel Nava back up. Bradley is 2-for-20 in his last six games, and he isn't even working walks any longer, with none in his last 10 games. Today's 0-for dropped his OBP below .300 for the first time since the first week of the year.
May 22 - 7:19 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. had a rough night at the plate in Friday's loss to the Tigers, going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts.

The disappointing night drops Bradley's season slash to an anemic .200/.301/.296. While he plays tremendous defense in center field, it doesn't appear that his bat is ready for the big leagues just yet, and he may benefit from more seasoning in the minors.
May 16 - 11:22 PM

Jackie Bradley, Jr. doubled, walked twice, and scored a run in Friday's win over the Athletics.

Bradley's batting average has been under .250 since mid-April, but he continues to find ways to get on base. After tonight, his on-base percentage sits at .347 through 28 games. The Red Sox will take that from the rookie.
May 2 - 11:33 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in the Red Sox' win over the Rays on Tuesday.

The double was actually Bradley's second of the game, and he came around to score on a Shane Victorino double in the same inning. Bradley is batting just .244/.344/.372 on the year, but he's scored 11 runs and has 12 RBI batting at the bottom of the Red Sox lineup. Bradley has also stolen three bases in three attempts.
Apr 29 - 10:53 PM

Jackie Bradley is expected to remain the Red Sox' starting center fielder after Shane Victorino (hamstring) comes off the disabled list.

There was little doubt at this point, as Bradley has started 10 straight games in center field and Grady Sizemore is starting to settle in as the left fielder. Bradley is batting just .220/.339/.280 with no homers and two steals this season, but, according to manager John Farrell, has "solidified the defense in center field for us." Daniel Nava is hitting just .136/.239/.271 and has options remaining, making him a "prime candidate to be sent down," writes Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald.
Apr 20 - 8:35 AM

Jackie Bradley Jr. delivered a two-run double off Leury Garcia in the top of the 14th to lead the Red Sox to a 6-4 win over the White Sox on Wednesday.

The floundering Red Sox caught quite a break when the White Sox ran out of pitchers, forcing them to turn to an infield. After two two-out walks from Garcia, Bradley delivered the big hit, just Boston's third after the first inning of the contest. He finished the game 1-for-6 with a walk.
Apr 17 - 1:51 AM

Jackie Bradley Jr. walked all three times up and scored two of Boston's four runs against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Another really nice game for Bradley at the bottom of the Boston order. There's really no way for the Red Sox to keep him after Shane Victorino returns, not unless they trade Mike Carp. But he's making a case for sticking around.
Apr 9 - 7:35 PM

Alex Speier of WEEI.com thinks Jackie Bradley could stick as the Red Sox' starting center field after Shane Victorino (hamstring) returns from the disabled list.

If he does, it would push Grady Sizemore to left field. Speier notes that Bradley has looked like "the most dynamic player on the team" since his call-up, while Sizemore has looked "tremendous in the batter's box but limited in the field." The alignment does make some sense, but it would certainly be bad news for Daniel Nava and Jonny Gomes. It's a good problem to have for the Red Sox.

Apr 9 - 8:21 AM

Jackie Bradley Jr. 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Bradley has been excellent to start the season, sitting on eight hits in 20 at-bats. He struggled with the bat in his first taste of the big leagues last season, but has looked solid in the early going this year. However, Bradley's time in Boston is limited as Shane Victorino will eventually return from his hamstring injury. He can give the Red Sox something to think about by swinging a hot bat.
Apr 8 - 9:52 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 3-for-4 with two RBI to lead the Red Sox offense on Monday.

Bradley doubled his hit total for the season. It was his second career three-hit game, the other coming last June 1 against the Yankees. He'll continue to start most of the time until Shane Victorino returns, at which point he'll likely be sent down.
Apr 7 - 10:44 PM

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

Bradley will serve as outfield depth for the Red Sox while Shane Victorino nurses a late-spring hamstring strain. The 23-year-old probably won't get enough playing time over these next few weeks to warrant a fantasy add. Grady Sizemore is starting in center field for Boston on Opening Day against the Orioles.
