Does Jackie Bradley Jr Still Play for the Red Sox?
After 8 years of playing for the Red Sox from 2013 to 2020, Jackie Bradley Jr is back with the Red sox on a year contract.
The Brewers traded Bradley, David Hamilton, and Alex Binelas to the Red Sox on December 1, 2021, in exchange for Hunter Renfroe.
From the Minor league, Bradley started with the Boston Red Sox in the 2013 season as the 32nd overall on the MLB.com Top 100 Prospects list.
On March 31, manager John Farrell announced that Bradley would be the Opening Day left fielder at Yankee Stadium on April 1 after an impressive spring training.
Bradley got three walks, scored two runs, drove in one run, and made a pair of hustle plays on the basepath and in the field in the Red Sox’ 8–2 win over the Yankees despite being hitless in two at-bats.
After failing to beat out Grady Sizemore for the starting center field job on March 28, 2014, Bradley was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket, but was reinstated three days later after the team placed Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list.
Bradley spent the whole 2014 season as the team’s center fielder, participating in 127 games, but was optioned back to Triple-A Pawtucket on August 18 after batting just .216 despite playing excellent defense.
With one home run and 30 RBIs, he concluded the MLB season with a.198 batting average.
