Jackie Bradley Jr. Takes Over As Red Sox’s Cleanup Hitter Vs. Angels

David Ortiz won’t be in the Boston Red Sox’s starting lineup against the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday, which means Jackie Bradley Jr. will slide up to the cleanup spot.

The Red Sox center fielder certainly has been hitting like a cleanup hitter of late, boasting a .342 batting average with three home runs and seven RBIs in his last 10 games.

Check out what NESN’s Dave O’Brien and Steve Lyons had to say about Bradley in the video from “Red Sox Gameday Live” above.
