Bradley out of starting lineup for Red Sox, has MRI on knee

Posted April 11, 2017

According to an official statement released by the club on Monday afternoon, the Boston Red Sox have placed outfielder Jackie Bradley, Jr. on the team's 10-day disabled list.

Last season, Bradley appeared in a single-season career-high 156 regular season games for the Red Sox. Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said before Monday's series finale that he didn't think the injury was anything of "major effect", but the club obviously wants to be careful so that the ailment doesn't become a long-term issue.

Center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr., however, will be out. Just to be sure, the Red Sox are sending their center fielder back to Boston. The 26-year-old experienced swelling and stiffness the following day and an MRI exam revealed inflammation on the outside of the knee capsule and the sprained ligament. "We'll see", manager John Farrell said.

Bradley had struck a similarly upbeat tone Saturday after twisting his knee awkwardly and falling to the dirt.

The Red Sox can barely afford any more injuries right now with the way the flu has ravaged the clubhouse. He walked off the field under his own power and said he "absolutely" would be able to play Sunday, joking that his legs can hold up under anything because "I'm built like Secretariat". Bradley suggested the Sox want to make sure he can't do additional damage by playing through the injury.

Bradley said he still feels as though he can move around pretty well.

Benintendi's made just four Major League starts in center field, but that was his primary position in the minors, and evaluators like his defense in that spot.

The injury isn't expected the sideline Bradley for long, so the hope is that he'll be ready to return as soon as he's eligible.
