Brewers in the mix for free-agent OF Jackie Bradley Jr.?

Jackie Bradley Jr. still is a free agent. While the Boston Red Sox are still in contact with the outfielder, it appears another team has joined the pool of teams contending for his services. 

According to FanSided's Robert Murray, the Milwaukee Brewers are "in the mix" for Bradley Jr. 

Signing Bradley Jr. would solidify the Milwaukee outfield, which includes Christian Yellich and Lorenzo Cain. 

The 30-year-old has spent his entire eight-year career with the Red Sox, helping the team capture a World Series title in 2018. During the pandemic-shortened season, he slashed .283/.364/.450 with seven home runs and 22 RBI. 

The San Francisco Giants and Houston Astros are also reportedly interested in Bradley Jr. The New York Mets showed interest in him this winter, but they are likely out of the running after signing Albert Almora Jr. and Kevin Pillar.
