Jackie Bradley’s ‘stubbornness’ got him sent back to minors

They’re throwing Bradley under the bus in Boston. Must mean he’s on his way out for Giancarlo Stanton.

According to two league sources, there was a growing sense of frustration within the Red Sox clubhouse—both coaches and players—with Bradley due to his perceived “stubbornness with the coaching staff.” One source added that Bradley was unwilling to work with coaches to fix his swing. Both sources said Bradley’s attitude was one of the main reasons he was sent to the minors.

Manager John Farrell did not give Bradley the greatest of reviews prior to Tuesday’s game against the Yankees when asked about the outfielder’s progress in the minor leagues.

“Jackie was well aware when we sat down and described what needs to be the focal point. I don’€™t know that has necessarily needs to be repeated right now. The reports have been mixed,” Farrell told reporters in New York. “There have been days as he’€™s executed between the lines as he’€™s been working on but it’€™s still a work in progress.”
