JBJ To The Ten-Day Disabled List With Sprained Thumb

The Red Sox announced this afternoon that they are placing center-fielder Jackie Bradley, Jr. on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained thumb. JBJ had X-rays taken last night in Cleveland that turned out negative. However, his MRI this morning in Boston revealed the sprain. Deven Marrero was called up to take Bradley's place on the roster. Bradley had been hot at the plate of late—providing Boston with a huge weapon in the ninth spot of the order. Andrew Benintendi will likely shift over to CF with Chris Young taking over most nights in LF. There may also be other moves—like the call up of either Bryce Brentz or Rusney Castillo. And, if Dustin Pedroia returns soon, Eduardo Nunez could also see time in the outfield. Stay tuned!
