Report: Red Sox trading Jackie Bradley Jr. ‘all but certain’

Chaim Bloom will be put to the test right away this offseason as the Boston Red Sox’ new Chief Baseball Officer.

The Mookie Betts contract situation is enough to give any front office executive a headache, but one under-the-radar storyline in Boston this offseason will be what Bloom and the Red Sox brass decide to do about center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr.

Bradley is set to hit free agency after next season and will make $11 million in the final year of his contract. As the Red Sox look to shed payroll, they could look to deal their Gold Glove center fielder and find a more cost-effective replacement. In fact, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic believes it’s “all but certain” Boston will look to trade Bradley.

Will he be taking the Jackpot Wad with him when he goes?
