MLB trades: Red Sox land Rajai Davis from A's following Jackie Bradley Jr.'s injury
Davis should help fortify the Red Sox outfield
Davis has hit .233/.294/.353 in 100 games on the season. He's stolen 26 bases on 32 tries while playing center field more often than not. While Davis has possessed top-notch speed throughout his career, his defense isn't as good as it could be due to his questionable route running. Nonetheless, Davis gives the Red Sox another option in the outfield to pair with Andrew Benintendi, Mookie Betts, and Chris Young -- as well as a potential pinch-running specialist come postseason time.
It does not appear the Davis addition indicates Bradley Jr. is likely to miss more time than expected:
Rincones is an 18-year-old who didn't rank in MLB.com's top 30 list of Red Sox prospects. He's hit .258/.373/.369 while playing for the Red Sox's Dominican Summer League team.
