Bradley was placed on the bereavement list Friday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.
Players may spend between three and seven games on the bereavement list, placing Bradley's return somewhere between Monday and Friday of next week. Jordan Luplow (ankle) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.
Bradley isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.
Bradley will get a breather after he went 0-for-6 with an RBI and four strikeouts across the last two games. Yu Chang will start at first base and bat seventh.
Bradley went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Rays.
He took Drew Rasmussen deep in the second inning, briefly tying the game at 1-1, but it was pretty much all Tampa Bay from there. Bradley has been as advertised during his first extended stretch in the majors, slugging 11 homers in 39 games but striking out at a 34.0 percent clip with a subpar .211 batting average.
Bradley is out of the lineup Friday against the Rays.
Bradley exited Tuesday's contest with back spasms but was back in the lineup the past two days. He'll take a seat for Friday's contest with lefty Josh Fleming pitching for Tampa Bay. Yu Chang will work at first base for Cleveland.
Bradley (back) is starting Wednesday's game against the Astros.
Bradley left Tuesday's loss due to back spasms, but he'll be able to serve as the designated hitter and bat fifth Wednesday. The 25-year-old has gone 1-for-14 with three walks and 11 strikeouts in five games since the All-Star break.
Bradley was removed from Tuesday's loss to the Astros due to back spasms, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Bradley struck out in both plate appearances before being replaced by a pinch hitter during the seventh inning. Cleveland was trailing 9-0 at the time and labeled his removal as precautionary, so he could end up missing minimal time.
Bradley went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's 2-1 win over Kansas City.
Bradley took Kansas City reliever Jake Brentz deep to end the game with no outs in the ninth inning. The first baseman has homered in back-to-back games, bringing him up to 10 long balls on the year. He's added 19 RBI, 21 runs scored and a .240/.333/.580 slash line through 114 plate appearances. He should continue seeing everyday usage at first base.
Bradley went 2-for-2 with a home run and a pair of walks Thursday against the Royals.
Bradley got Cleveland on the board with a solo blast off of starter Danny Duffy in the fourth inning, his ninth round-tripper of the season. A thumper known for a low-average, high-strikeout profile, Bradley has supported his power production with a decent .237 average and .327 on-base percentage over his first 110 major-league plate appearances this season. If he can stay somewhere in that neighborhood within those rate categories, he should remain a viable asset for fantasy managers.
Bradley went 2-for-3 with a pair of solo home runs in a loss to the Tigers in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.
Bradley took Detroit starter Jose Urena deep for solo shots in the second and fourth innings during the matinee of the twin bill. He was much less effective in Game 2, going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts. The multi-homer performance was the first of Bradley's brief career. He is slashing .254/.321/.634 with eight homers and 17 RBI across 78 plate appearances on the season.
Bradley went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Friday's 8-7 loss to Minnesota.
The first baseman gave Cleveland a 3-0 lead with his two-run blast in the first inning. With a .607 slugging percentage through 63 plate appearances, Bradley has shown plenty of power since he was called up earlier this month. He's knocked six homers with 15 RBI, 14 runs scored and two doubles across 17 games.
Bradley went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Monday's 4-0 win over the Cubs.
Bradley opened the scoring in the second inning with his fifth homer of the year. In the fifth, he reached on a fielder's choice and scored on a Josh Naylor long ball. Through 14 games, Bradley has shown plus power with a .652 slugging percentage. He's served as Cleveland's near-everyday first baseman since he was called up from Triple-A Columbus.
Bradley went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against Baltimore.
Bradley took Jorge Lopez yard in the first inning to record his fourth home run in eight starts this season. As a result of that power surge, he has also managed to rack up 11 RBI and eight runs scored across only 35 plate appearances. Perhaps most importantly, Bradley has struck out only 22.9 percent of the time to this point, which will be a key to his ability to maintain playing time going forward.
Bradley went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and another RBI during Tuesday's win over Baltimore.
Bradley got the scoring started with an RBI single against Matt Harvey in the first inning, then added an exclamation point by taking Adam Plutko deep in the seventh. Since earning his promotion on June 5, Bradley has already mashed three long balls and two doubles while going 11-for-25 across eight games. He's certainly making his case to hold onto a regular role.
Bradley is not in Saturday's lineup against the Mariners.
He is 6-for-13 with two home runs, two walks and one strikeout in four games since getting the call June 5, but he has not been treated like a true everyday player just yet. Owen Miller is starting at first base and hitting eighth.
Bradley went 2-for-3 with a home run, two additional RBI and two walks in Friday's win over the Mariners.
Bradley launched his second long ball of the season off Justin Dunn in the second inning, and he also reached base in four of his five plate appearances. The 25-year-old made his season debut earlier this month and while the sample size is small, the results are encouraging -- he's recorded six hits across 13 at-bats, homering twice and racking up six RBI and five runs scored in that span.
Bradley isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.
Bradley will get a breather after he went 4-for-10 with a home run, two doubles, four runs and three RBI across his last three games. Josh Naylor will start at first base and bat sixth.
Bradley went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two runs in Sunday's 18-5 loss to the Orioles.
Bradley has gotten off to a hot start to begin his big-league career, as he now has three extra-base hits in his first two games. The 24-year-old could claim the starting job at first base going forward, and he's made a strong case for continued playing time across his first two appearances.
Bradley went 1-for-1 with a double and a run scored as a pinch hitter in Saturday's 10-4 win over the Orioles.
Batting for Yu Chang to lead off the eighth inning, Bradley celebrated his promotion by lacing a two-bagger and coming around to score on a Cesar Hernandez single. Chang did hit his first homer of the season earlier in the day, but given his struggles at the plate this year overall, Bradley should get every opportunity to win the starting first base job in Cleveland.
Bradley was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.
Bradley was unable to break camp in the majors this year, and he slashed .196/.266/.485 with nine home runs and 19 RBI in 26 minor-league games to begin the season. Yu Chang could serve as the primary first baseman in the near future, but Bradley should compete for playing time after Jake Bauers was designated for assignment.
Bradley will open the season in the minors, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.
Neither Bradley nor Jake Bauers has shown much of anything at the big-league level, so it's a bit of a surprise to see Bauers beating Bradley for the starting first base job despite Bradley's .951 spring OPS easily beating Bauers' .709 mark. Bradley isn't the tier of prospect where Cleveland will get all that much value out of manipulating his service time, either. He could certainly move past Bauers on the depth chart at some point, but it's not clear what he'd have to do for that to happen.
