Jackie Bradley Jr. News
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the White Sox. The two extra-base knocks nearly matched Bradley's total (three) from his first 17 games of July combined. Bradley's elite defense in the center field continues to earn him regular at-bats, but his career-worst .555 OPS and 29.4 percent strikeout rate will put him at risk of being the odd man out for an everyday role if Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) returns from the injured list during the upcoming week.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. came into Tuesday's game with a .159 batting average on the season, even after getting a couple of hits in Monday's win. Bradley has a .217 batting average on balls in play, which indicates that he's also run into some pretty bad luck in 2021. It's been especially disappointing after he slashed .283/.364/.450 with seven home runs, 22 RBI and five stolen bases in 2020 in his final season with the Boston Red Sox. Bradley has been especially bad against left-handers, going 4-for-34 (.118) with a home run and five RBI. While things should improve for him in the second half with better luck, Bradley's 5.4% barrel rate and 89.9 mph average exit velocity don't bode well. Neither do his .200 expected batting average and 31.9% strikeout rate.
Milwaukee Brewers catcher Omar Narvaez is on the bench Saturday against the Colorado Rockies with right-hander Antonio Senzatela on the mound. Narvaez, who has an .857 OPS and is off to one of his best years offensively, is getting rest after Friday night's contest. Manny Pina is catching and hitting eighth, but the defensive standout sports a .128 batting average and can be ignored, even in two-catcher leagues. Tyrone Taylor is in center field for Jackie Bradley Jr. and is hitting sixth. Taylor only has a .223 average this year, but he shows a touch of pop with six homers in 94 at-bats, making him a potential fringe option for fantasy managers with daily lineup flexibility.
