Red Sox manager John Farrell hasn't totally ruled out Bradley making the Opening Day roster, the Boston Globe reports. "He would be served well to get at-bats in the minor leagues before he comes up, but again he's making a strong impression in camp," said Farrell. "It's going to be about how he fares against quality pitching as we go through camp. You're finding out about the person from a maturity viewpoint. Is he going to handle adversity? We have to weigh all of those things."
Recommendation: Bradley gets rave reviews for his poise, speed and ball-tracking ability. He gets on base and hits both lefties and righties. The consensus entering training camp is that he'll replace Jacoby Ellsbury in 2014, and we're likely to see him open the season in the minors, but there's also a strong likelihood he makes an appearance with Boston at some point this season.
