Red Sox | Jackie Bradley gets company

The Boston Red Sox view a healthy OF Grady Sizemore (knee) as competition for OF Jackie Bradley for the starting center fielder job. "This doesn't take Jackie out of the mix at all," manager John Farrell said Wednesday, Jan. 22. "There's questions that we have to answer in spring training with our roster, so the fact of Grady signing and being added to our roster doesn't remove Jackie from our club. I think one of the things that (general manager Ben Cherington) and all of us have set out to do is add to the depth of our team, and Grady certainly does that right now."

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore still has a long way to go to prove his health before becoming a serious threat to Bradley. Right now, Bradley should be considered the replacement for Jacoby Ellsbury in center field, but obviously there is a lot to be determined during the spring.
