Giants Reportedly Interested In Trading For Jackie Bradley Jr.

Published

on

The San Francisco Giants are looking to improve their outfield this offseason, and Jackie Bradley Jr. is one name they’ve been considering.

As MLB.com writer Jon Morosi reported Sunday morning, the Boston Red Sox center fielder is drawing interest from the Giants:

Bradley Jr., 27, has been with the Red Sox since beginning his Major League career in 2013. In that time, Boston hasn’t shown interest in trading him.

There’s no denying that Bradley Jr. is one of the best defensive center fielders in the game. This past season, his nine defensive runs saved tied for third among players at that position.

After a breakout offensive season in 2016 hitting .267/.349/.486 with 26 homers and 87 RBIs, Bradley Jr.’s numbers dipped this year. He hit just .245/.323/.402 with 17 homers and 63 RBIs- though in 76 less at-bats.

Still just 27, Bradley Jr.’s young age could fit San Francisco nicely. Denard Span (33) and Hunter Pence (34) are both cornerstones in the outfield that the Giants are looking to improve. And youth doesn’t hurt.
