Jackie Bradley Jr. didn’t fare so well in his first taste of the big leagues. However, with the young outfielder’s meteoric rise through the Red Sox’ system, it was only a matter of time before he ended back up with the big club, and it appears that time is Wednesday.
According to Comcast Sports Net’s Maureen Mullen, Bradley will be recalled from Pawtucket on Wednesday, and pitcher Alex Wilson will be sent down in a corresponding move. Though outfielder Shane Victorino is on the 15-day disabled list with rib and hamstring injuries, Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Bradley will likely serve in a backup role.
That, of course, begs the question as to just how long Bradley will be with the team, given that Boston doesn’t likely want the 23-year-old filling a regular bench role. However, with two games in Philadelphia beginning Wednesday — and without the benefit of the designated hitter — Bradley may only be serving as roster depth for a couple games.

Every year there are Major League Baseball teams that sign a bunch of veteran players to minor league deals and stick them away in Triple-A since there is no room on their current 24-man roster. This year, the Boston Red Sox signed former Baltimore Orioles and Texas Rangers utility player Brandon Snyder to a minor league deal on April 2 and since then, have gotten quality production...
The last time the Boston Red Sox had a pick in the Top 10 was 1993. First pick in that draft was shortstop Alex Rodriguez (you’ve heard of him) by the Seattle Mariners, the easy No.1, even coming out of high school (he turned down playing shortstop and quarterback for the University of Miami). Following Rodriguez came five straight pitchers: two of whom suffered career-shortening...

John Lackey wasn’t at his best Wednesday night but he has pitched effectively for the Red Sox this season. Lackey, signed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract prior to the 2010 season, had a rocky start to his Boston tenure. After posting solid peripherals with poor run prevention marks in 2010, he posted a 6.41 ERA in 2011 before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He missed the...

With the Astros moving to the American League this season Interleague Play is now throughout the season. The season began with the Angels visiting the Reds. I for one like the idea of Interleague Play throughout the season but understand it isn’t beneficial to all teams. The Red Sox are one of few teams to have just experienced interleague games for the first time during...
