Red Sox promote two, demote two in Wednesday moves
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) John Farrell announced Wednesday that the Red Sox have made a slew of moves, including the demotion of outfielder Jackie Bradley back to Triple-A Pawtucket a day after he had been brought up.
Farrell also told WEEI that Anthony Varvaro has been designated for assignment and that fellow right-handers Dalier Hinojosa and Tommy Layne have been recalled from the minors.
Bradley is still trying to display his potential at the big-league level after batting .198 in 384 at-bats with Boston a year ago. Varvaro punched his ticket back by giving up four runs on eight hits in his last 3 1/3 innings pitched.
Red Sox call up OF Jackie Bradley, option pitcher Steven Wright

|(4/28/15) The Red Sox have called up outfielder Jackie Bradley from the minors and optioned pitcher Steven Wright back to Triple-A, according to the Boston Globe.
“We needed to add another position player,” manager John Farrell said, per WEEI.com. “Mike Napoli is still day to day and with last night’s outing of Joe Kelly and where we came through last night, felt like our bullpen was caught up enough to go back to 12 pitchers. Jackie will be in a reserve role coming off the bench.”
Bradley started the season with Triple-A Pawtucket and is hitting .315 with seven doubles and six RBI in 73 at-bats. Wright was called up Tuesday by Boston as an emergency option if the bullpen needed extra help. He threw five innings this season with a 3.60 ERA and three walks.
Red Sox send Rusney Castillo, Jackie Bradley Jr. to Triple-A
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/2/15) The Red Sox announced several roster moves on Thursday, per the Boston Globe. The team optioned outfielders Rusney Castillo and Jackie Bradley Jr. to Triple-A, and reassigned Matt Spring, Humberto Quintero and Dana Eveland to minor-league camp.
Bradley and Castillo are expected to see work at right and center field in the minors, while Shane Victorino starts at right field in the majors.
"Both he and Jackie were difficult decisions. Both guys had great springs... Rusney did everything we asked of him," Farrell said, per the Boston Herald. "He's going to play both right and center in Pawtucket. The everyday at-bats are part of that, so is the depth and overall roster."
Castillo hit .310/.310/.621 with one double, one triple, two home runs and five RBI this spring. Bradley slashed .378.462/.444 with three doubles and one RBI in Grapefruit League play.
Red Sox's Jackie Bradley Jr. showing off new swing
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. is showing off his new swing this spring, according to the Boston Herald.
Bradley started working out at the team's facility in November, and started hitting in January. He worked with assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez for a good portion of the offseason. "Jackie was dedicated," Rodriguez said. "He listened, too. He was open to what we talked about."
Manager John Farrell has noticed the change in Bradley's approach. "In BP, to me, it seems like there’s more of a willingness to stay in the middle of the field and not look to lift a ball too much," Farrell said. "I think it’s more of his natural swing, which he was drafted with."
Bradley said his swing has been a "work in progress." While it doesn't appear Bradley has a starting role, his defense should make him a useful major-league asset.
The 24-year-old hit .198/.265/.266 over 384 at-bats last year.
Red Sox GM: Rusney Castillo ready to perform on big-league level
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/24/15) Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Tuesday that the team isn't concerned with the recent lack of playing time for outfielder Rusney Castillo, who hadn't seen any action since 2012 before signing with the Red Sox last August, ESPN.com reports.
"That’s not an element we’re concerned with right now," Cherington said. "He’s done everything we asked him to do from the day we signed him -- going to the minor leagues, big leagues, Arizona [Fall League], Puerto Rico [winter ball] and everything in between. He’s in a position now where he comes to spring training, we met with him, told him, ‘Just be a baseball player and try to get into some kind of baseball normalcy now.’ I don’t expect the number of at-bats he’s had over the last 10 months to be a factor. Normalcy is going to play out in spring training. He has a chance to be a really good major league player. We’re happy he’s here."
Castillo is set to compete with Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley this spring to start in center field.
