Bradley will remain on the bench Saturday against the Marlins.
Bradley doesn't appear to be part of the Brewers' plans against lefties now that Lorenzo Cain is back from his quadriceps injury. He sat against southpaw Tyler Rogers on Friday and will do so again with another lefty (Daniel Castano) on the mound Saturday.
Bradley is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins.
Bradley should find himself in the lineup less than he's used to now that Lorenzo Cain is back from a quadriceps injury, though he still has a path to regular playing time given that Christian Yelich (back) landed right back on the injured list just one day after getting activated Monday. Bradley could start losing opportunities due to performance reasons, however, as he's gone 1-for-19 with eight strikeouts over his last six games and owns a .573 OPS on the year. Cain will be the center fielder Friday.
Bradley went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Phillies.
Bradley was back in the lineup due to Christian Yelich's (back) return to the injured list. He managed only one hit, but he made it count by hitting his third homer of the season in the seventh inning. Though he'll get more regular playing time in Yelich's absence, Bradley is hitting just .188/.248/.347 across 109 plate appearances in 2021.
Bradley will be on the bench Monday against the Phillies, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Bradley has had an everyday role for the past several weeks, starting 18 of the Brewers' last 19 games before sitting Monday. The returns of Christian Yelich (back) and Lorenzo Cain (quadriceps) will inevitably lead to more days off for Bradley going forward, though just how many remains to be seen.
Bradley went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer and two walks in Friday's 3-1 win over the Dodgers.
Bradley connected on the first pitch he saw of the day and drove it over the wall in left for a two-run homer. His blast was just his second of the year and ended up being the difference in the game. The 31-year-old has struggled mightily so far in his first season with Milwaukee, as he's slashing .207/.274/.356 with only four RBI, 12 runs scored and an abysmal 2:28 BB:K. He should still see a fair amount of playing time while Christian Yelich (back) and Lorenzo Cain (quadriceps) are sidelined.
Bradley will not start Monday against the Marlins, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Bradley hits the bench with the left-handed Trevor Rogers starting for the Marlins. It's unclear how often Bradley will sit against southpaws this season, as Rogers is the first one they've faced this year. Tyrone Taylor starts in center field in his absence.
Bradley will start in center field and hit leadoff Wednesday against the Cubs.
With Lorenzo Cain (quadriceps) landing on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Bradley looks like he'll have a clear path to an everyday role for at least the next week and a half. It's less certain if Bradley will regularly find himself atop the lineup, however, as the complexion of the Brewers' batting order could change once Christian Yelich (back) returns to action. Yelich will be on the bench for a third straight game Wednesday, but the Brewers are viewing him as day-to-day and remain hopeful that he'll be able to re-enter the starting nine for this weekend's series versus the Pirates.
Bradley is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals.
The 30-year-old started the first two games of the series in St. Louis but will head to the bench for the finale. It figures to be a regular rotation for Bradley with Lorenzo Cain and Avisail Garcia starting in center and right field Sunday, respectively.
Bradley is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.
Bradley had started in each of the Brewers' past four games while Lorenzo Cain (oblique) sat out three of the contests. Cain's return to action Wednesday will leave Bradley without a clear-cut path to an everyday role, but the latter should still be in store for at least a handful of starts per week unless right fielder Avisail Garcia -- who has a .353 OPS through four games -- goes on a major heater at the plate.
Bradley went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's 8-2 loss to the Twins.
Bradley got aboard on an error in the second inning and scored on Manny Pina's sacrifice fly. In the sixth, Bradley added a solo shot. The 30-year-old outfielder is in contention for playing time in center field and right field, but Lorenzo Cain and Avisail Garcia are in the mix as well. Bradley will get his chances in 2021, but it may come down to matchups as to when he plays. His homer Sunday was his first hit of the year.
Bradley won't start Thursday's Opening Day contest against the Twins.
Avisail Garcia will get the start in right field, batting cleanup, while Lorenzo Cain will bat sixth as the center fielder. Bradley is expected to spend time at both positions, though it will take more than just one game to determine the breakdown of starts among that trio. It's possible Bradley sits more frequently early on, as he didn't join the Brewers until early March and then missed time in late March with wrist soreness.
Bradley (wrist) expects to be ready for Opening Day, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Bradley had surgery right after last season ended to remove a cyst on his right wrist. He's been dealing with a bit of soreness in that wrist in recent days, but he remains confident that he'll be ready to go when the season begins. General manager David Stearns framed things less optimistically Friday, and players often overestimate their own health, but Bradley was in the lineup Saturday against the Royals, so this might not be one of those cases.
Bradley (wrist) is scheduled to play in a spring training game Saturday, but general manager David Stearns said it's "still a little bit to-be-determined" whether the outfielder will be ready for Opening Day, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The 30-year-old signed with the Brewers in early March and appeared in six spring games before the wrist issue flared up, so he may not have enough at-bats to be ready for the start of the season. Stearns still expressed optimism Bradley would be ready in time, so a trip to the injured list my not be necessary even if he's not quite game ready for Opening Day.
Bradley (wrist) could return to game action Saturday, Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.
Bradley has been dealing with right wrist soreness recently, but he'll hit Thursday and play the field Friday. The Brewers then plan to have Bradley play in Saturday's Cactus League game. It's unlikely that he'll be forced to miss time to begin the regular season.
Bradley has been held out of Cactus League action since Sunday due to wrist soreness, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The 30-year-old is expected to rejoin the lineup within the next few days, so the injury appears to be a minor concern. Bradley's availability for Opening Day next week shouldn't be affected by the issue, though it's worth keeping on eye on his status until he actually retakes the field.
Bradley will make his spring debut in Saturday's exhibition game against the Rangers.
Bradley was expected to see his first action with the Brewers on Saturday, and it turns out he will do just that. He will man center field and hit leadoff in Saturday's batting order.
Bradley is scheduled to make his spring debut in Saturday's exhibition game against the Rangers, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The Brewers are giving Bradley a few days to get up to speed before inserting him into the lineup, but his first appearance with his new club is not far off. Despite the late start, Bradley will have plenty of time to get into playing shape before the regular season gets underway.
Bradley agreed Thursday with the Brewers on a two-year, $24 million contract, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.
Bradley waited for the right deal to come around, and he ultimately reached a multi-year agreement with the Brewers. His contract does include a player option for the second year, though, so he is not guaranteed to remain with Milwaukee past 2021. The addition of Bradley gives the Brewers four outfielders capable of playing nearly every day; as things stand, it seems likely Bradley will split time with Lorenzo Cain and Avisail Garcia in center and right while Christian Yelich patrols left field.
Bradley went 3-for-6 with a double, a solo home run and an additional run scored in Sunday's win over the Braves.
If this was Bradley's last game with the Red Sox, he certainly went out on a high note. His teammates want him back, but the club could go in another direction, or Bradley may decide he wants to move on. Bradley ended up slashing .283/.364/.450 with seven homers, 22 RBI, 32 runs scored and five stolen bases in his eighth season with Boston.
Bradley went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, three runs scored and a walk in Friday's 8-7 extra-innings loss to Atlanta.
Bradley's solo shot in the fifth inning tied the game at 1-1. He also scored on a Rafael Devers groundout in the seventh and an error by Adeiny Hechavarria in the ninth. The 30-year-old Bradley is slashing .279/.354/.432 with six homers, five stolen bases, 21 RBI and 29 runs scored in 53 contests.
