Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington insists the team isn't down on OF Jackie Bradley after he hit only .189 with a .280 on-base percentage over 37 games in his rookie season. He struck out 31 times in 95 at-bats. Cherington said the team "would feel very good" about Bradley taking over for OF Jacoby Ellsbury in center field next season. However, the Red Sox know Bradley is still young, so they are looking to add a veteran outfielder that could complement him against lefties. "I definitely don't feel like what I showed this year is what I'm capable of," Bradley said. "I showed some glimpses, but I know that wasn't me. You can look at my track record. I've hit at every level. I was able to go through that, take my lumps and bumps, as John Farrell said. I definitely feel like I got better in the bigger picture."

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley isn't in the lineup against a tough lefty Tuesday, Sept. 10, but manager John Farrell said Bradley "is going to be in the mix" to replace OF Jacoby Ellsbury (foot) in certain matchups. OF Shane Victorino is starting in center field Tuesday, with OFs Jonny Gomes and Daniel Nava manning the corners.
Fantasy Tip: Bradley may be a candidate in cavernous mixed formats if you're looking for a stolen base boost. However, Bradley is probably best left to AL-only formats since he won't be playing every day.

Updating a previous report, Doctors are trying to determine whether Boston Red Sox OF Jacoby Ellsbury (foot) has a deep bone bruise in his foot or if he has a fracture in his foot.
Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury will miss time because of the injury but it is not known if he will miss the rest of the season. Jackie Bradley has been called up and could see playing time in center field while Ellsbury is out and could be an option in AL-only leagues if available.

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley (elbow) has been put on the disabled list at Triple-A Pawtucket with elbow inflammation.
Fantasy Tip: Bradley probably won't return to Boston until rosters expand in September, and he won't make much of an impact in the final month, making him only worthy of an addition in AL-only leagues.

The Boston Red Sox are unlikely to trade for Philadelphia Phillies SP Cliff Lee because the Phils are reluctant to move him, and the Red Sox don't want to give up SS Xander Bogaerts, OF Jackie Bradley or other big-name prospects.

The Boston Red Sox recalled OF Jackie Bradley from Triple-A Pawtucket Tuesday, July 9.
Fantasy Tip: Shane Victorino (hamstring) and Jacoby Ellsbury (wrist) are banged up, and it's unclear if either will need a stint on the disabled list during the All-Star break. The BoSox aren't comfortable using Daniel Nava in center field. Bradley's stay could be short, but he should at least be owned in all AL leagues until we know more.
