When Jacoby Ellsbury defected to the Evil Empire this past winter, the heir-apparent to the center field position was Jackie Bradley, Jr.
The 23-year old from the University of South Carolina has been billed as a five-tool outfielder who the Red Sox can build around. But with today's announcement by John Farrell that Grady Sizemore will be the Opening Day center fielder, Bradley's future role at Fenway is in question.
Bradley had a monster Spring Training in 2013 (.419/.507/.613), but started off the regular season poorly, finishing the season with a .189 batting average in 37 games played.
