Jackie Bradley Jr. News
The Kansas City Royals signed free-agent outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to a minor-league deal on Wednesday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training. Bradley will be hoping to impress enough in spring training to win a spot on the Royals' Opening Day roster. He has fallen off a cliff offensively the last two seasons and hit a combined .203/.255/.311 with a .566 OPS, four home runs, 38 RBI, 30 runs scored and 77 strikeouts in 370 plate appearances over 131 games with the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays in 2022. At this point in his career, the 32-year-old Bradley will provide the Royals with depth in the outfield, but he's off the fantasy radar and isn't guaranteed to begin the year in the big leagues.
The Toronto Blue Jays signed free-agent outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to an undisclosed major league deal on Tuesday, according to a source. Bradley was released by the Boston Red Sox last week after hitting just .210/.257/.321 with three home runs, 29 RBI, 21 runs scored and two stolen bases in 290 plate appearances over 91 games played. The Blue Jays could use some outfield depth with George Springer (elbow) on the injured list, especially since the left-handed hitting Bradley Springer hasn't done much at the plate in 2022. The 32-year-old can still be an asset on defense, but he has really struggled offensively the last two seasons. At best, JBJ will see at-bats against right-handers in center field until Springer returns from the IL.
The Boston Red Sox designated outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. for assignment on Thursday. The writing was on the wall for Bradley, who is hitting just .210/.257/.321 with three home runs, 29 RBI, 21 runs scored and two stolen bases in 271 at-bats this year, when the Red Sox traded for outfielder Tommy Pham at the deadline on Tuesday. If the 32-year-old isn't scooped up off waivers by another team, he'll return to the organization and head to the minor leagues at Triple-A Worcester. He's still useful for his glove work in the outfield, but Bradley's bat has been useless to the Red Sox and fantasy managers in 2022.
