Jackie Bradley Jr. has been making a strong case this spring to be considered for an Opening Day roster spot with the Red Sox.
Bradley Jr. got his first start of the spring in the outfield Sunday against the Phillies. He hit a three-run homer in the second inning off Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee and finished with four RBIs in the matchup.
Sox assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez has worked with Bradley Jr. in the minors and is not at all surprised by the 22-year old’s success.
Hear what Rodriguez had to say in the video above.
