Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley starts following recall Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2015) The Red Sox recalled outfielder Jackie Bradley from Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday. The Red Sox wasted little time getting Bradley into the lineup, as he started in right field and hit ninth Thursday against the Orioles.

This is Bradley's second stint with Boston. Since returning to the minors in late May, he is batting .299 with three home runs, nine doubles, seven RBI, 14 runs, 15 walks, 20 strikeouts and two stolen bases in 28 games, per Baseball-Reference.com.


Dispatched Red Sox CF Jackie Bradley tearing it up at Triple-A


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2015) The Jackie Bradley Saga continues in Boston even with the center fielder playing at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Bradley received little opportunity upon his promotion to the Red Sox on May 10 after he had improved his swing and was playing well in the minors. He went hitless in just 11 at-bats before being demoted again on May 22.

The team has since traded for castoffs Carlos Peguero and Alejandro De Aza. Meanwhile, Bradley is batting .348 with an .893 OPS at Pawtucket. He is also potentially the finest defensive center fielder in baseball.

It remains to be seen how long he remains at Triple-A and, if he is brought up to the Red Sox, if they give him a long look as a starter.


Red Sox bring up Rusney Castillo, option Jackie Bradley Jr.


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) The Red Sox officially called up outfield prospect Rusney Castillo from Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday, the team announced.

Castillo is expected to start in right field during Friday night's game against the Angels. Castillo is batting .293 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 18 games at Triple-A.

To make room for Castillo, the Red Sox optioned outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to Triple-A.


Red Sox call up OF Rusney Castillo from Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) The Red Sox have recalled outfield prospect Rusney Castillo from Triple-A Pawtucket. He is expected to start in right field in Friday night's game against the Red Sox, per MLB.com. The team has not yet confirmed the move.

In 18 games with Pawtucket this season, Castillo was batting .293 with two home runs and 10 RBI. He was also 6-for-8 in stolen base attempts. 

In a corresponding move, the Red Sox have optioned outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to Triple-A. 

"It came as a little bit of a surprise. It's not something I was thinking about," Castillo said, per the Providence Journal


Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. still searching for first hit of 2015


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. was expected to make an impact when he was recalled from Triple-A on May 10. After all, the youngster was hitting .343 through his first 24 games at Pawtucket. 

However, Bradley has only gotten into six games with the Red Sox, making just three starts since his call-up. In fact, he's yet to record a hit in his 11 at-bats this season.

“They have been limited [at-bats]; there are other guys ahead of him,” manager John Farrell said,per ESPN.com. “We’ve used him in spots where there have been some late-inning defensive replacements. That’s his role right now. It’s a difficult one, particularly for a young player, to try and stay sharp and gets his at-bats when they’re available to him. But the work remains consistent, and that’s the spot he’s in right now."

With talks that Rusney Castillo's return to the big leagues could be imminent, Bradley could be facing another demotion in the near future. 


OF's Mookie Betts, Shane Victorino out of Red Sox lineup for Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) Red Sox outfielders Mookie Betts and Shane Victorino are out of the lineup for Saturday’s game in Seattle, getting replaced by Jackie Bradley Jr. in center field and Brock Holt in right.

Holt will bat leadoff while Bradley will hit ninth.

Betts has led off 33 of the Red Sox’s 36 games coming into Saturday.

Shortstop Xander Bogaerts will move up and hit sixth on Saturday, the highest he’s hit in the order all season.


Red Sox GM denies reports of possible Jackie Bradley trade offer


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) With the Red Sox currently in Seattle taking on the Mariners in a four-game series, reports of a proposed Jackie Bradley-for-Charlie Furbush offseason trade have re-surfaced. However, Red Sox general manager immediately refuted these reports on Friday, indicating via text message that these reports are "simply false", according to ESPN.com.

It had been reported earlier in the spring by a source with one of the clubs that the Mariners rejected the proposal from the Red Sox, but it seems that no such offer had been made, or rejected. 

Bradley has been the source of a number of trade rumors recently, given the Red Sox surplus of outfielders, and need for pitching. 

 


Farrell: Jackie Bradley and Shane Victorino will split Red Sox's RF starts


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Jackie Bradley was called up from the minor leagues to split the right field job with Shane Victorino

Victorino is currently on a minor league rehab assignment, recovering from a hamstring injury. He's expected back Monday. 

"When Vic gets back to us Vic is going to get the left-handed starters if not more," Farrell said, per WEEI. "But Jackie’??s arrival here gives us a premium defender. Certainly like him against a lot of right-handed pitching so we’??ll find the right matchups. I’??m not going to say it’??s a strict platoon situation by any means but I think it’??s important for us to find when we’??ve got a situation or matchup we’??ve got to take advantage of."


Red Sox make Jackie Bradley, Allen Craig moves official


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) The Red Sox officially announced the promotion of outfielder Jackie Bradley from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Bradley is in the Red Sox's starting lineup on Sunday. He was hitting .343 in Pawtucket. He spent most of last season on Boston, playing in 127 games.

The team also announced that it was optioning slumping outfielder Allen Craig to Pawtucket. Craig was hitting .135 with two RBI this season. 


Jackie Bradley makes first start of year for Red Sox


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley , just promoted from Triple-A, will make his first start of the year for the Sox on Sunday. 

Bradley will play right field and hit eighth in the order. Shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who has batted eighth the last 13 games, bumps up to the seventh spot for just the third time this season. 


Report: Red Sox to option OF Allen Craig


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) One could never have imagined just two years ago Allen Craig being sent to the minors. But the Red Sox are on the verge of optioning him, a source has told the Boston Herald. As a player with four years service time, he cannot refuse the assignment.

Craig declined to comment when asked about a possible move, but Jackie Bradley was scratched from his Saturday game for Triple-A Pawtucket and would be the logical candidate to take his place. ESPN has claimed that Bradley is on his way to Toronto to join the team.

The move would be made to get Craig regular at-bats and back in the groove. He was among the steadiest and most productive hitters in the National League for St. Louis in 2012 and 2013, but has been a mess since.

Craig has just seven hits in 48 at-bats this season and has received only sporadic playing time.


Red Sox promote two, demote two in Wednesday moves


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) 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


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) 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
(4/2/2015) 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 SpringHumberto 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
(3/5/2015) 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
(2/24/2015) 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.


Red Sox's Farrell: Jackie Bradley is the best CF in baseball


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Red Sox manager John Farrell made it a point Tuesday to say outfielder Jackie Bradley remains in the mix to win the starting job in center field, despite the fact he appears to be an underdog in the competition.

“There are three prime candidates in that spot,” said Farrell when asked of the center-field competition, per WEEI.com. “If you’re pinning those two positions on Hanley (Ramirez) and Vic (Shane Victorino), what’s left over. That’s where Mookie [Betts], Rusney [Castillo] and Jackie come into play. Individual strength that vary to each person, each player. That’s what it begins to center around. And the durability and the dependability of the guys on the flanks will have some effect to the overall decision in the outfield.”

Farrell highlighted Bradley's strengths as a defender as the reason he can't be counted out of the competition.

“He’s working to establish himself more as an offensive player. In my mind, he’s the best center fielder in baseball and I’m not afraid of saying that,” Farrell said. “He’s an extremely talented guy. There have been some offensive challenges, but don’t deny what he can do and he can play center field as good as anybody.”


Report: Braves have strong interest in trading for Red Sox's Bradley


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) The Braves have called the Red Sox and have shown strong interest in acquiring outfielder Jackie Bradley, according to baseball analyst Peter Gammons. The Red Sox might be forced to move an outfielder this spring due to a crowded outfield situation.

Bradley has struggled offensively in his MLB career, batting .196 in 164 games. However, he has been a very strong defender. He has a career .995 fielding percentage in the outfield and committed just one error in 318 chances in 2014.


Assistant hitting coach: Jackie Bradley 'going in the right direction'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) Red Sox assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez has been working with outfielder Jackie Bradley on staying on top of the ball and is pleased with the player's progress, per WEEI.com.

A rope stretches across the right-handed batter's box at roughly eye level in Bradley's batting cage, and "[s]taying under the line means staying on top of the ball," Rodriguez said Friday. "You’ve got to stay short and through the ball. It’s a target that you visualize, and it forces you to stay on top."

Bradley moved to Naples after last season and has been working out in and around JetBlue Park for more than six weeks. He hit just .198/.265/.266 with one home run, 30 RBI and eight stolen bases in 384 at-bats in 2014.

"I believe that was a learning year for him," Rodriguez said. "All that is behind him. He really wants to do things the right way. I’m very positive that this guy’s going in the right direction."

Bradley will be looking to establish his role this spring in an outfield that could also include Hanley Ramirez, Rusney Castillo, Mookie Betts and Shane Victorino.


Red Sox's Jackie Bradley wants to emulate Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Following a workout Tuesday at the team's spring complex in Florida, Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley said he is "going to go all Marshawn Lynch this year." Bradley was referring to the Seahawks running back's interview style.

“I just focus on me. I have to do what I’ve got to do. I don’t even talk about it to anybody,” Bradley told WEEI.com. “Action speaks louder than words, and that’s pretty much this whole year is going to be. I won’t have much to say. I’m just going to go out there and take care of business.”

While Bradley has played outstanding defense in his career, his offense has been severely lacking, which is why he wants to change the way he approaches the game.

“I feel great right now. I’m in a good place,” he said. “There’s no difference for me. I use spring training to get ready for the season. That’s when everything counts. That’s what I’m focused on. Get ready for the season, and April, and let everything else work itself out.

“Action, not words. Words are gone now this year. Put up or shut up.”


Red Sox among teams that view Jackie Bradley Jr. as starting CF


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Tuesday they are teams that view Jackie Bradley Jr. as a starting center fielder, according to The Boston Globe. Cherington went on to add that the Red Sox are one of those teams.

Bradley was demoted to the minors during the 2014 season due to his struggles at the plate. He would eventually return to the majors, but he hit just .198 in 127 games. Bradley, however, was outstanding defensively. He made just one error in 307 chances in center field and no errors on 11 chances in right field.


Red Sox bring up Jackie Bradley, Drake Britton


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) The Red Sox have promoted embattled outfielder Jackie Bradley from Triple-A Pawtucket, as well as southpaw reliever Drake Britton.

Bradley was dispatched to the minors in August after having opened the season as the starting center fielder and compiling a poor stat line of .211/.288/290 with 111 strikeouts in just 348 at-bats.

Britton didn't fare well in the minors. He managed a 5.86 ERA in 45 appearances with more walks (38) than strikeouts (37).


Red Sox finally demote Jackie Bradley to minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Outfielder Jackie Bradley's strong defensive presence could no longer make up for his weak offensive numbers, as the Red Sox finally demoted the 24-year-old outfielder to Triple-A Pawtucket Monday. The team recalled Mookie Betts from Pawtucket to replace Bradley on the roster.

While Bradley was perfect on 301 defensive chances, he hit just .216 in 112 games. He had one home run, 19 doubles and 30 RBI, but he drew just 31 walks and struck out 111 times.


Mookie Betts in, Jackie Bradley out of Tuesday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) The Red Sox lineup Tuesday against the White Sox includes Mookie Betts in center field rather than Jackie Bradley.

A matchup against left-hander John Danks has Bradley out, but the latter owns a slightly better batting average againstg southpaws than righties this season.


Jackie Bradley opens up stance, gets results


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(7/7/2014) A defensive whiz all season, Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley has made an adjustment at the plate that's paying dividends, reports WEEI.com. Bradley opened up his stance recently and feels more comfortable in the batter's box.

Over the last four games, he's 6 for 14 with two walks and four runs scored. "I’m feeling really good at the plate right now, and just trying to battle," he said.

Added manager John Farrell: "The extra work that he’s been doing has been starting to pay off. He’s starting to reproduce a more consistent swing path, using the whole field, particularly the left side of the field as we’ve seen in the past."
