Jackie Bradley Jr. is a minor league All-Star.
Bradley was added to the International League All-Star team Monday. The outfielder was the leading vote-getter in fan balloting, but he was in the majors with the Boston Red Sox at the time the team was announced. Now back with Triple-A Pawtucket, Bradley has accepted his spot on the All-Star roster.
Bradley joins left-handed pitcher Brian Johnson as the PawSox’s All-Star representatives. Johnson will not participate in the July 15 game, however, as his next scheduled start for Pawtucket is July 11.
Bradley is hitting .319 in 54 games for the PawSox this season. The 25-year-old entered Monday ranked second in the International League in batting, second in on-base percentage (.396) and third in slugging pct. (.460). His defense, of course, is considered elite at any level.
