Jackie Bradley's double gives Red Sox win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:38 am ET) Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley went 1 for 6 Wendesday but hit a two-run double in the 14th inning to give his team a lead they wouldn't squander in a 6-4 Red Sox victory over the White Sox.

Bradley's double came off White Sox infielder Leury Garcia after he walked two batters in his first career pitching appearance. The Red Sox outfielder has hit .244/.354/.317 with two stolen bases in 41 at-bats.


Red Sox reconsidering starting outfield alignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Red Sox manager John Farrell said he will consider an outfield alignment of Shane Victorino, Grady Sizemore and Jackie Bradley once Victorino returns from the disabled list. Farrell said he's considering the alignment because there's a "premium on defense," per MassLive.com.

Jackie Bradley collects three hits in win Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley went 3 for 4 with one run and two RBI in his team's 5-1 win over the Rangers Monday.

The Red Sox racked up 14 hits but only one was for extra bases, limiting the damage done on the scoreboard. That wasn't an issue for Bradley, who drove in two runs while scoring another to go with his three singles from the No. 9 spot in the order. Bradley is 6 for 16 in six games thus far, and he should continue to see extensive playing time while Shane Victorino is sidelined.


Jackie Bradley Jr. collects two hits, RBI in win over O's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) Jackie Bradley Jr. got the start at center field for the Red Sox on Thursday, and recorded his first two hits of the season in a 4-3 win over the Orioles in Baltimore.

Bradley, filling in for Shane Victorino (hamstring), reached on infield single in the third and singled in a run in the sixth inning. He finished 2 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI. He has two hits in his first five at-bats to start the season.

Injury forces quick recall for Jackie Bradley


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket Monday after Shane Victorino was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a hamstring injury. Bradley was sent to the minors after Grady Sizemore won the starting job in center field this spring.

Jackie Bradley Jr. handling demotion well


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. is handling his demotion to Triple-A well, according to the Boston Globe.

Bradley Jr. has been able to keep a positive attitude since hearing the news, which has impressed teammates. "I know I’m going to be a major league player, but life is full of setbacks and disappointments, and you can’t let those things defeat you," Bradley Jr. said. He added that he knows he's still the same player he showed last spring, and said he's not going to have negative feelings about his demotion. 

Bradley Jr. admitted he would use the demotion as a motivating tool. He said he'll play with a chip on his shoulder, but won't be a distraction. 

Bradley hit .189/.280/.337 in 95 at-bats last year.


Jackie Bradley keeping head up despite loss of job


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Jackie Bradley lost the competition to Grady Sizemore for the starting job in center field for the Red Sox, but he hasn't lost his confidence. He was also braced for the news that he would be starting the season at Triple-A Pawtucket.

"I was prepared either way," he told MLB.com. "I'm not one to ever get caught off-guard about anything. You take it in stride and move on. I knew it was going to be a competing thing. [Sizemore] played well. I didn't perform in spring training, but I feel like I'm ready for the season and I'm ready to prove it. We all didn't see Jackie Bradley Jr. this spring. ... It's humbling. I've always known that."

Bradley batted just .158 with 17 strikeouts in exhibition play after a tremendous spring landed him on the roster a year ago.


Jackie Bradley destined for demotion


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Center fielder Jackie Bradley first lost the starting job with the Red Sox to Grady Sizemore. Now he has lost his roster spot. Bradley will be optioned Friday to Triple-A Pawtucket, the team has announced.

Bradley batted just .173 after being considered the favorite to start at that position heading into spring training. The Red Sox prefer he receives consistent at-bats in the minors rather than serve as a backup. After all, he will not even turn 24 years old until April 19.


Jackie Bradley Jr. needs consistent at-bats


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. needs a consistent flow of at-bats, according to WEEI. 

Assistant general manager Mike Hazen said that in order for Bradley Jr. to adjust at the plate, he'll need "more at-bats." Hazen implied that those at-bats could come in the minors depending on whether the team decides to go with Grady Sizemore at the position. "There’s going to be more at-bats that are needed," Hazen said. Where those end up being, we don’t know that right now." Bradley is hitting .158 this spring.


Loser in Red Sox center field race likely to be sent down


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Red Sox manager John Farrell said the center field job is an "either-or" decision, according to the Providence Journal.

Farrell's quote seems to indicate that the loser at the position will likely wind up being sent to the minor-leagues. The only scenario where both Grady Sizemore and Jackie Bradley Jr. would open with the the major-league club is if Shane Victorino is placed on the disabled list. That would be a temporary decision, however. Eventually, a decision will have to be made. 


John Farrell: Grady Sizemore destined for extended look


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) John Farrell has presented more evidence that Grady Sizemore has catapulted ahead of Jackie Bradley in the battle for the Red Sox starting center field job. He announced that Sizemore could play Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Sizemore continued his tremendous spring with three more hits Wednesday in a minor league game. His .381 batting average is more than double that of Jackie Bradley, with whom he is competing for the position.


Jackie Bradley might be losing grip on starting job


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2014) Jackie Bradley remains the Red Sox starting center fielder, but he has been outplayed by comeback-seeker Grady Sizemore and his job could be in jeopardy, according to the Boston Herald.

Sizemore is batting .308 with four singles in 13 at-bats and has earned increased playing time. Bradley continues to struggle with a .167 mark in 30 at-bats.

"We came into camp as Jackie as the guy to start in center field and I don't think anything has radically changed that thought," John Farrell said. "But we can't deny that Grady Sizemore has looked very well in camp. We're still trying our arms around his durability."

Sizemore has not played a full season since 2008 as knee injuries and various other ailments have robbed the former perennial all-star with the Indians of his reputation as a workhorse.


Competition continues to rage in center field for Red Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) The return to health and possibly the form of Red Sox center fielder Grady Sizemore had John Farrell talking Saturday about the competition at that position. Sizemore, who has battled back from a series of knee injuries, is fighting Jackie Bradley for the starting spot and could play in successive games Monday and Tuesday for the first time this spring.

"The competition is there," Farrell told the Boston Herald. "But we haven't arrived at a conclusion with Grady yet. ... We still have to get answers to some questions that aren't there yet. There's still going to be that looming question of what's the total number of games played? We want to be sure to keep that trajectory going upward rather than have any kind of setback because we've taken too quick a step."

The former perennial all-star with Cleveland has been impressive in his comeback and is even being considered for the leadoff spot this season.


Jackie Bradley 'ready to prove' he can hit in the majors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) After having a monster spring last year, Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley had trouble replicating his success during the regular season. Bradley said he won't be shaken by his struggles last season and is ready to prove he's capable of playing every day in the majors.

"[I] know the experiences that other players have gone through," Bradley said, per WEEI.com. "I'm a pretty mentally tough guy. I know I can take my bumps and my bruises. I'll be fine, I promise you. I'm going to get things back on track. I've been able to hit at every single level so I'm ready to prove that I can do it at this level as well."

Manager John Farrell is confident Bradley won't be overwhelemed as he competes with Grady Sizemore for the starting job in center field this spring.

"He's shown throughout his entire minor-league career that there's plate discipline there," Farrell said. "He ran into pitching that was at the big-league level different than what he faced at the minor-league level where they're able to command the ball on a certain part of the plate more consistently. I thought he made some adjustments when he came back to us. Nothing abnormal in a normal transition for a young player. I can't begin to speculate numbers-wise, but I think he's going to put up quality at-bats, he's going to play very good defense and really stabilize the middle of our outfield."


Red Sox manager projects lineup/batting order


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Red Sox manager John Farrell provided a projected lineup/batting order during an interview with WEEI Wednesday.

The lineup consisted of Shane Victorino leading off. He was followed by Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Mike Napoli, Daniel Nava, A.J. Pierzynski, Xander Bogaerts, Will Middlebrooks and Jackie Bradley.


John Farrell: Jackie Bradley is our starter for now


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/15/2014) Jackie Bradley is the Red Sox starting center fielder - for now. John Farrell has made that proclamation early in spring training with the knowledge that recently acquired former all-star Grady Sizemore could wrest the job if he eventually shows flashes of his former self.

Bradley proved little in his brief time in the majors last season, batting .189 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 95 at-bats. But Sizemore is still not fully recovered from a spate of injuries that have prevented him from playing since 2011.


Jackie Bradley open to competition in center


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/8/2014) Red Sox 23-year-old center fielder Jackie Bradley expressed positivity about the signing of Grady Sizemore, who could wrest the starting position away from him.

Bradley appeared set when Jacoby Ellsbury bolted in free agency. But the addition of Sizemore creates competition.

"I don't have any reaction beyond I thought it was great," Bradley told the Boston Globe. "The guy is a stud and hopefully he can learn from me as well as a teammate. I'll let them make the hard decisions. I'll just play."

Bradley batted .189 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 95 at-bats with the Sox in 2013. Sizemore, once the ultimate ironman and perennial all-star, hasn't played since 2011 while recovering from back and knee injuries.


Plenty of Red Sox in camp early


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Plenty of Red Sox hitters have reported to camp early, according to the Boston Globe.

Pitchers are catchers aren't set to report until February 15, but a few players showed up early. The most interesting names among the bunch are Will Middlebrooks, Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr.

Middlebrooks is attempting to recover from a down year in 2013, and it's a good sign that he's in camp early. He hit just .227 last season, but is slated to be the team's starting third baseman. The Red Sox continue to be rumored as a landing spot for Stephen Drew, but Middlebrooks' performance in camp could prevent them from making the move.

Bogaerts is in a similar position. The top prospect will be looking at a potential breakout season as the team's starting shortstop. Bogaerts' playing time was limited by Drew being in town last year, but the training wheels are coming off this year.

Bradley Jr. will be fighting for a spot on the team's 25-man roster after Grady Sizemore was brought in. Bradley Jr. was considered one of the team's best prospects entering last season, but was promoted too early and struggled. There's still plenty of potential there if he can beat out Sizemore. 


Grady Sizemore, Jackie Bradley expected to compete for CF job


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) Red Sox outfielders Grady Sizemore and Jackie Bradley are expected to compete for the starting center field job if Sizemore proves healthy in the spring, the Boston Herald reports.

Sizemore was signed to a $750,000 deal Wednesday that could be worth as much as $6 million based on the amount of time he spends on the major-league roster as well as the number of plate appearances he receives. Bradley hit .185/.280/.337 in 95 at-bats last season in his first taste of the majors.


Red Sox could turn to Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) Red Sox president Larry Lucchino told WEEI.com Monday he is "pretty darn confident" that Jackie Bradley and Xander Bogaerts can be productive starters for the team in 2014.

"I think that Xander still has some refining of his game," said Lucchino. "He just turned 21 in the postseason. Jackie Bradley, taking you back a few months as to the views of him by experienced baseball people, he's going to have a long and productive career. I feel very confident about them, as confident as you can be with someone at that age and stage."

Bogaerts hit .250/.320/.364 in 44 at-bats last season, but saw his role grow in the postseason, when he picked up 23 plate appearances in six World Series games. Bradley earned a starting spot out of spring training, but hit just .189/.280/.337 in 95 at-bats, and did not factor in the playoffs.

The team has free agents at shortstop and center field, so they may need their young players to step up without a fallback option in 2014.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2013) Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. is starting in center Thursday against the Rays.

Bradley will hit ninth against Jeremy Hellickson. Bradley is hitting .176/.282/.324 in 68 at-bats.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2013) The Red Sox recalled Jackie Bradley from Triple-A Pawtucket Saturday and started him against the Yankees with Jacoby Ellsbury out due to a foot injury, WEEI.com reports. 

Bradley had gone 10 for 39 (.256) over his last 10 games at Triple-A, but did have three doubles, four RBI and a stolen base over that stretch. He hit .275 in the minors this season but has gone just 9 for 58 (.155) at the big league level.
