Latest Update Bradley Jr. is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Tuesday Tue Jul, 22, 03:45 PM
A natural leadoff type, he is a very patient hitter who draws a lot of walks and can steal bases. His defense in center field is exceptional, and he also displays a great throwing arm.
Flaws: : While he will hit his share of home runs, he doesn't have high-end power potential (and that limits his overall upside on offense). Needs to start using the entire field at the dish.
Bradley will take a seat against lefty J.A. Happ and Brock Holt will take over in center field. Bradley is actually hitting better against lefties than righties, but it's still just a .246 average. Analyst: Howard Bender
This seems to be a matter of preference now for manager John Farrell. Bradley actually has a slightly better average against lefties, but Mookie Betts gets the nod Tuesday in center field.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Red Sox are trying to stack with as many right-handed bats as they can with Cubs lefty Travis Wood on the mound, Mookie Betts will get the nod in center field Wednesday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Bradley continues to receive plenty of at-bats since the return of Shane Victorino, and if he continues to come through when the team needs him most, there is no reason to think the Red Sox will have a change of heart. He is currently sitting on a .233 average, which is not the best, but has driven in 13 RBI on 10 extra-base hits through his first 86 at-bats. For now Bradley remains an AL-only options foe those in deep league formats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
