Jackie Bradley, Jr. Re-Joins Red Sox Tonight

He's Baaaaaaack!
This time he just might stick. Jackie Bradley, Jr. has been re-called from Pawtucket and will re-join the major league club in Philadelphia tonight. Bradley has been ripping it up in AAA—hitting .354, and on a 12-game hitting streak before the call-up. The outfield phenom started the season with Boston, but slumped to an .097 average before being sent down. He did, however, make things happen in the field and on the bases—and excited the fan base with his obvious potential. As it becomes more and more likely that Jacoby Ellsbury will wear other laundry in 2014, it's important to get Bradley experience at all three outfield spots for the rest of this year.
