Blue Jays sign 1-year deal with OF Jackie Bradley Jr

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays have signed veteran outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. on a one-year deal ahead of Tuesday night’s game in Baltimore.

Bradley, 32, was released by the Boston Red Sox on Thursday. He’s hitting .210 with three homers and 29 RBIs in 92 games this season.

“Every year is a challenging year. They go through a lot of different things,” Bradley said. “Obviously, I didn’t have the offensive year that I wanted.”

Bradley signed a two-year, $24 million deal with Milwaukee in March 2021 and played one season for the Brewers. Then in December he was traded to Boston and played a second stint with the Red Sox.

Bradley was the 2018 AL Championship Series MVP.

A native of Richmond, Virginia, Bradley said his family comes to Camden Yards often – and Tuesday would be no different.

“My mother was there,” he said.

The Blue Jays selected right-hander Matt Peacock for the assignment and opted for Triple-A Buffalo infielder Otto Lopez.
