Jackie Bradley Jr. activated from disabled list

Otto Greule Jr

The elbow inflammation has subsided, returning Bradley to his regular gig in Pawtucket.

Remember back on July 30, when Jackie Bradley Jr. was removed from the PawSox game at the same time the Red Sox were negotiating a deal for White Sox starter Jake Peavy? It was a moment of panic for sure, and relief he wasn't included in any trade wasn't entirely assuaged when it was learned he was dealing with an elbow injury instead.

It hasn't been that long since Carl Crawford, you know. We're still a little gun shy around here.

Luckily, Bradley has been activated from the minor-league disabled list, which he was placed on the next day on July 31, after dealing with inflammation in his elbow. This will allow him to get back on the field for Triple-A Pawtucket, and wrap up a season that will very likely end with him as part of the Red Sox once rosters expand in September. He won't start regular when that happens, not unless there's an injury, but it'll be good for the Red Sox that they have the option of a late-inning defensive unit of Bradley, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Shane Victorino in their outfield.

Bradley has had a fine campaign, despite two trips to the disabled list, hitting .278/.378/.489 for the PawSox in 58 games and 277 plate appearances.
