REPORT: Red Sox Are Actively Looking To Trade Jackie Bradley, Jr.

The Boston Globe's Peter Abraham is reporting that the Red Sox are "actively" trying to trade star center-fielder Jackie Bradley, Jr. Moreover, he also reports that the team is not involved with any of their free agents (read: Brock Holt and Rick Porcello).

With the cost-cutting mandate on Yawkey Way, shedding his 2020 salary would be a help in getting below the luxury tax threshold. Stay tuned.
