Jackie Bradley went 1-for-5 with a homer and three RBI on Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley has been in a bit of a funk as Sunday's homer was his first since July 29th. Over the last 14 games, Bradley is hitting just .170 with the one homer and the three runs batted in. Until he gets back on track, Bradley should be avoided in DFS.

Jackie Bradley went 2-for-4 with a double, a homer and three RBI in Thursday's 13-2 thrashing of the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley has been struggling in the power department as he only had one home run since June 24th. He is still hitting for average and is at .297 on the year. Hopefully, Thursday's game is a start of a power streak for the centerfielder and right now he is a good value on DFS and should be a good option for daily fantasy players.

Fantasy Impact: After a red-hot May, Bradley has slowed down and has only hit .195 the last two weeks. Even with his low batting average, he is still providing counting stats with four homers, 10 RBI and nine runs scored over that time span.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley has cooled off since his torrid stretch through May and is his last seven days has hit .214. He may not have another month like May but should still be able to contribute in fantasy as he has solidified his role in centerfield with the Red Sox.

Jackie Bradley drives in one

Sun, Jun 5th 6:48pm EDT
By Matthew Young

Jackie Bradley Jr. had one RBI on Sunday. He went 1-for-4, striking out once as the Red Sox lost to the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-4.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley is currently batting .323 for the season as him and many other Boston hitters are having a strong first half of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley is having a breakout season for the Red Sox. He is currently hitting .331 with nine homers, 37 RBI, and three stolen bases. Bradley also just won the AL player of the month award for May after his 29 game hitting streak led to a .381 average for the month.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley will miss one or two games with the leave. Adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly. Bradley is having a breakout season hitting .331 with nine homers and 37 RBI.


Jackie Bradley went 1-for-4 with a home run and a walk during Monday's win against Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley had his 29-game hitting streak get snapped on Thursday, but that has not slowed him down. He has hit in three of the last four games and is showing continued discipline at the plate with 11 walks in his last 10 games. He should still be started with confidence in fantasy leagues and makes for a good DFS play.

Jackie Bradley's hitting streak ended at 29 games Thursday, as he went 0-for-4 against the visiting Rockies. Bradley made hard contact on two flyouts, but it wasn't enough, and as a result the majors' longest hitting streak came to an end.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley has been on a torrid stretch and has impressive numbers on the season. Bradley is hitting .341 with eight homers, 34 RBI, 25 runs and two steals to start the year. It will be hard for him to maintain this level of hitting but for now, he is a must start and a good play in DFS.

Category: , Game Recaps


Bradley will look to extend his 29-game hitting streak from the leadoff spot Thursday when the Red Sox conclude their series against the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Making Bradley's hitting streak even more impressive is the fact that he has batted in the bottom third of the lineup during most of the streak. Bradley could get an extra at-bat tonight batting leadoff as he looks to extend his hitting streak to 30 games.


Jackie Bradley extended his hitting streak to 28 games in Tuesday's win over the Rockies, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. The center fielder continued his breakout year, and only needed one pitch to keep the hitting streak alive. Bradley's hot run has increased his average to .346 and his OPS to 1.037, both of which rank second in the American League.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley is definitely having a breakout season and has to be one of the biggest surprises in baseball this year. That being said, Bradley cannot sustain this rate and some regression will come. This is a great time for his fantasy owners to sell high on him as they could get a nice return.

Jackie Bradley went 1-for-2 with a homer and two walks in Friday night's 4-2 loss to Cleveland.

Jackie Bradley went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in the second game of a doubleheader against the Royals on Wednesday, pushing his hitting streak to 24 games.

Fantasy Impact: There is no one hotter in baseball than Jackie Bradley. He has raised his season number up to .338 with seven home runs and 30 RBI. Bradley went on a similar six-week stretch last August but hit a major slump in September to finish the season. The question is if Bradley can sustain this hitting this year or will he hit a rough patch. Bradley's value may never be any higher than now and could be a good sell-high candidate for fantasy owners.

Jackie Bradley homers twice

Thu, May 12th 9:55am EDT
By Chris McCoy

Jackie Bradley went 3-for-5 Wednesday night with a pair of home runs in Boston's win over the A's. Bradley scored two runs while driving in six and is now batting .322 with an OPS of .977 in 118 ABs.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley has been a streaky player in his career with his cold streaks being frigid and his hot streaks blistering. Well, JBJ appears to be in the midst of one of those hot streaks right now as his May slash line is currently .432/.462/.892. Clearly he won't keep up this pace all year, but he should be active in all formats until he comes back down Earth.

Jackie Bradley finished 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored, and six RBI against the Athletics on Monday, moving his batting average over .300 in the process. Bradley is now hitting .303 and has seen his average jump 59 points in the last 10 games. He has 13 RBI in the last 10 games and has 15 extra-base hits this season.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley now has a 15-game hitting streak and a .903 OPS in 109 at-bats. Known for his Gold Glove-caliber defense, Bradley should be equally regarded as one of the more streaky players, as fantasy owners can remember his 1.163 OPS from last August after he entered the month with a .417 OPS. Although there is reason to be hesitant about Bradley, remember that he followed up his ridiculous August with 12 extra-base hits and 17 RBI in September and that he has a .931 OPS against right-handed pitchers in 2016.

Jackie Bradley had a monster night at the plate Monday, going 3-for-5 with a grand slam and six RBI in a win over the Athletics.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley has a 15 game hitting streak going. During the streak, he has three homers, 11 extra-base hits and knocked in 17 runs. Bradley is a streaky hitter and right now he is hot which makes him roster-able in all fantasy leagues until he cools down.

Jackie Bradley went 1-for-3 with a two-run double in Friday night's 4-2 win over the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley has struggled to start the season but is starting to heat up. Bradley currently has a six-game hitting streak (7-for-24, .292) with six runs batted in. He is very streaky so this is the time to start him or pick him up while he is hitting well.

Jackie Bradley was the only player to put a run on the board Monday, going 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Boston's 1-0 win against the Braves.

Fantasy Impact: The home run is Bradley's first of the season. Bradley is off to a quiet start this year and is hitting just .234 with the one home run and seven RBI. He also drove in the winning run on Sunday and Bradley, who is a notoriously streaky player, could be getting hot, which would make him a nice short-term pickup in fantasy leagues or DFS play.

Jackie Bradley with a triple

Thu, Apr 14th 9:56am EDT
By Chris McCoy

Jackie Bradley went 1-for-3 on Wednesday night against the Orioles, driving in one run and scoring one. His lone hit was a triple off of starter Ubaldo Jimenez.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley has yet to demonstrate the intense streakiness that defined his 2015 season. However, Boston will probably take his current .250 average and gold glove caliber defense all day long. It's hard to say if Bradley's average will go up by much over the course of the year, but his consistent playing time could be a decent source of counting stats out of your fourth or fifth outfielder spot.

Jackie Bradley doubled on Monday driving in a pair of RBI in Boston's home opener. Bradley's first double of the season was his only hit of the ball game as he finished 1-for-4 with a strike out.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley's glove will be enough to keep him in Boston's line-up more often than not, but he's going to need to do slightly better than his current .235 average that he is sporting through 17 ABs. That being said, it's still very early on and JBJ's strong spring could be an indicator of things to come. If you have him on your roster, you may want to at least keep him in a reserve role until he begins to heat up.

Jackie Bradley kicked off the 2016 season by going 1-for-3 in Cleveland. Bradley also walked once and scored one run.

Fantasy Impact: While Bradley's glove is almost enough to keep him in the line-up every day, it will be interesting to see if his work at the plate justifies a spot on your fantasy team. Thus far JBJ has proven to be a streaky hitter with decent on base skills. If you see him starting to heat up, do not be afraid to get him in your line-up because he could perform like a high-end OF for weeks at a time.

Red Sox centerfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. is off to another strong start this spring after going 1-for-1 with a walk against the Rays on Monday. On the spring JBJ is now 5-for-8 with a home run.

Fantasy Impact: Spring Training has never been a problem for JBJ, it's when the lights turn on for real that he can struggle. That being said, Bradley did finish 2015 with a .249/.335/.498 in 255 PA buoyed by a blistering August when he had a 1.163 OPS. Bradley's current ADP has him as the 86th OF off of the board, which is not even a starter in a five-OF league. JBJ could be worth a shot as a late round flier, but if he winds up as one of your starting three or five outfielders on Opening Day something went wrong.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley is among the elite defensively in center field. The question marks come with his bat. Bradley is extremely inconsistent as he showed last season. He hit just .102 to begin last season only to heat up in August when he hit .385 but then fell back off hitting just .121 his last 21 games. He is being given a starting job to start 2016 but if he gets off to bad start he could lose it in a hurry.


2015 represented a turning point for Jackie Bradley Jr. as he finally proved that he was able to hit Major League pitching posting a .249/.335/.498 line with 10 HR's in 255 plate appearances. A deeper look into the numbers revealed that Bradley, a lefthanded hitter actually produced better against LHP with a .306/.390/.528 line versus a .221/.380/.483 against RHP. Similarly, Bradley was much better at home (.321/.391/.621) versus on the road (.186/.288/.390).

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley turned out to be a pretty useful fantasy player at the end of 2015 as he went on streaks where he crushed everything in sight. Be wary of him in the 2016 draft as he may go off the board a little higher than necessary. The smart play would be to look at Bradley as a reserve in three OF leagues and a four to five in five OF leagues. Its possible that he outperforms that level, but its just as likely that he comes crashing back down to Earth.


Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a game-tying two-run homer in the top of the ninth inning as the Red Sox rallied to defeat the Blue Jays 7-6 on Saturday in Toronto.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley Jr has been one of the biggest surprises of the second half in fantasy. Bradley has fallen into a slump the last week but looks to be out of it with his performance on Saturday. Bradley should be owned in all leagues and is a good value in DFS.

Jackie Bradley in minor slump

Tue, Sep 15th 3:48pm EDT
By John Aubin

Jackie Bradley has one hit in his last 19 at-bats with four walks and 10 strikeouts. His average has dropped from .312 to .281. After putting up monster numbers from early August through early September, Bradley has done little over the past six games.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley has always struggled at the major league level up until his call up at the beginning of August. He has played at an All Star level and produced huge fantasy numbers. It is a six game slump so it may be worth a few more days to see if Bradley can turn things around before dumping him.


Jackie Bradley went 4-for-4 with a double, a homer, four RBI and two runs Monday against Toronto.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley has to be one of the biggest surprises in the second half for the Red Sox. Thought to be a failure at the major league level, Bradley has been on a tear and currently owns an eight game hit streak. Bradley is not owned in all leagues so run to the waiver wire and enjoy his hot hitting while you can.

Jackie Bradley homers on Friday

Jackie Bradley went 1-for-3 with a walk, a homer and two runs scored in Friday night's win over the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley continues his hot hitting on Friday night. Since August ninth, Bradley is hitting .423 with a BABIP is .558. This is not sustainable but it looks like Bradley has found his stroke. He is also now playing everyday and should be owned in all leagues.

Jackie Bradley went 2-for-3 and scored a run in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley continues to hit the ball well since being recalled a month ago. With the news of Hanley Ramirez not playing in the outfield for the rest of the season and the trade of Alejandro DeAza this means Bradley will become a full time player. And if he continues the hot hitting he should be owned in all leagues.

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's 10-inning win over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley continues his hot hitting on Friday night. Since being called up from Triple A on July 29th, Bradley is hitting .328 with four home runs and 20 runs batted in. Owners wanting to cash in on this hot streak should know that Bradley is in a platoon with Rusney Castillo and not playing everyday.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley is one of the hottest players in baseball right now hitting .480 the last week. But that has not stopped the Red Sox from platooning Bradley in right field with Rusney Castillo. It would be a smart move to grab Bradley while he is hot but the platoon is hurting his fantasy value.


Jackie Bradley went 5-for-6 with two homers, three doubles, seven RBI and five runs scored in Saturday's win over the Mariners. He extended his hitting streak to five games and has gone 13-for-22 with nine extra-base hits, 13 RBI and 11 runs scored during that run.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley has gone from being hot this week to absolutely scorching. Bradley who has struggled at the major league level throughout his career is on fire right now. He may be worth a pickup while he is on this run and he does have decent upside but do not be surprised if he regresses back to the .200 hitter he has been for his career.

Jackie Bradley went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Friday night's win over the Mariners. He has three multi-hit games in the previous four.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley is really heating up. After struggling in his multiple trips to the big leagues this season, it looks like Bradley might be figuring things out. He might be a good pickup in deeper leagues who are looking at a hot bat. Bradley is a career .200 hitter so he could cool off as fast as he heated up.

Jackie Bradley went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored in Tuesday night's loss to the Marlins. He has two consecutive multi-hit games and has hit safely in four of his last five games.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley has been horrible at the plate in the big leagues this season hitting just .102 going into last week. It looked like Bradley may get sent down to the minors this week but it looks like this recent surge gives him new life. Bradley is not own-able in fantasy leagues right now but if he can show this is more than a hot streak he could be a candidate to be picked up.

Jackie Bradley went 2-for-3 with a home run, a triple, five RBI, two runs scored and a walk in Sunday's game against the Tigers

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley has really stuggled at the major league level this season for the Red Sox. Bradley is just hitting .121 in 24 games. This game was huge for Bradley as someone will have to be moved when Mookie Betts comes off the DL. Fantasy owners will want to wait awhile longer before running to the waiver wire to pick up Bradley.

Jackie Bradley went 1-for-4 with two runs scored in Friday night's win over the Tigers. He's reached base safely four times (two hits, two walks) the last two games.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley has really stuggled at the major league level this year and in past seasons. Bradley is hitting .196 in 164 career games in the majors. While the last two games are nice, it will take a longer stretch to be worth picking up in most fantasy leagues.

Jackie Bradley went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Wednesday night's win over the Yankees. In the past seven games, Bradley is 1-for-19 with five strikeouts, three walks and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley was having a strong season at Triple A and it looked like this could be the time he breaks out for the Red Sox when he was called up recently. But Bradley once again has struggled hitting at the major league level. If anyone picked up Bradley on a speculative add in their fantasy league can drop him.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley is being called up to replace Mookie Betts on the active roster. Betts is on the seven day DL so Bradley may only be up for a week. Bradley has been hitting well at Pawtucket hitting .305 on the season.


Jackie Bradley has been used as a late-inning defensive replacement in each of the previous two games. He had started six games before that, when Hanley Ramirez was unavailable due to a hand injury.

Fantasy Impact: With Hanley Ramirez back from his injury and Shane Victorino coming off the DL soon, Jackie Bradley has lost a chance at a starting outfield spot for the Red Sox. Bradley has been hitting well in Triple A, and if he could get a chance in the majors, we may find out if he is fantasy relevant.

Jackie Bradley homered and walked in Tuesday night's win over Toronto. Bradley finished the game going 1-for-3.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley has started six straight games in the outfield while Hanley Ramirez recovers from a hand injury. But with Ramirez expected back any day and Shane Victorino also coming off the DL this weekend, Bradley could get caught in a numbers game.

Jackie Bradley stuck in Triple-A

Tue, Jun 16th 3:13pm EDT
By John Aubin

Red Sox manager John Farrell said there are no plans at this time to bring Jackie Bradley up from Triple-A Pawtucket, the Boston Herald reports. (Source: Boston Herald)

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley has hit well at Triple-A with a .335 batting average so far this season. The problem with Bradley is he has never proven he can hit at the big league level with a career .197 average which includes an 0-for-13 stint for Boston earlier this season. Until Bradley can prove he can hit major league pitching, ignore him if he does get called up.


Jackie Bradley had his sixth straight multi-hit game Thursday night, going 2-for-5 with a homer and a double for Triple-A Pawtucket. He's up to .347/.398/.474/.872 through 103 plate appearances.

Fantasy Impact: If Jackie Bradley was on any other major league team beside Boston he would be in the big leagues right now. But with the depth of the Red Sox outfield there is no room for Bradley. He is known for his defense and speed and his strong hitting makes him attractive now for another club to try to acquire him. If he can continue hitting like this he will work his way on the Red Sox roster or another team.

Fantasy Impact: This is not a big surprise as Jackie Bradley has struggled at the major league level. But he has hit well this spring and looks to have improved. Part of the demotion is a numbers game as the Red Sox have many options. There is a good chance he gets called up soon or traded to a team needing an outfielder.


Jackie Bradley went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run scored in Tuesday's game against the Rays. He is now 5-of-13 with two doubles in four games this spring.

Fantasy Impact: The Red Sox outfield situation is currently crowded and Jackie Bradley is targeted for Triple A. There could be opportunities if Rusney Castillo or Shane Victorino go into the season on the disabled list. Bradley is great defensively but struggles at the plate so the hot start this spring helps his case to stay in the major leagues.

Jackie Bradley had a hard-hit double, a single, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday night's game against the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: With the injury to Rusney Castillo it gives Jackie Bradley an opportunity to compete for the centerfield position. He is outstanding defensively but has been horrible from the plate. In his two seasons in the majors he has hit .189 and .198. Bradley has worked on his swing in the off season and we shall see if it shows this spring.

Category: , Game Recaps


With the Red Sox outfield so crowded with candidates, there is a presumption that a trade is in the offing for Jackie Bradley Jr., who was the team’s everyday center fielder as a rookie last season but batted .198 and ultimately was displaced by another rookie, Mookie Betts, and a Cuban free agent, Rusney Castillo. But that should not be considered a given. There was a recent report, for example, that the Atlanta Braves were interested in Bradley. Early in the offseason, the Braves approached the Sox about a possible Bradley deal but were unable to find a match acceptable to Boston, according to a league source, who conveyed that the Red Sox still hold Bradley in high regard. The sides have not spoken about Bradley in weeks, the source said, and it would seem unlikely that talks will intensify again. (Source: ESPN Boston)

Fantasy Impact: There is currently a logjam in Boston's outfield and it would look like Jackie Bradley would be the odd man out. If he does not get traded, more than likely he will end up in the minors. Either way Bradley has yet to prove he can hit major league pitching and is not fantasy relevant in any league.

Fantasy Impact: Jackie Bradley needs to improve his hitting if he wants to stay in the major leagues. This is an important year for him as he has not proved he can consistently hit in the big leagues. He does have the potential and will need a big spring training to stick with the Red Sox. He is not fantasy relevant as Boston is deep in the outfield and he will not play full time if he makes the club.
