Red Sox | Jackie Bradley could earn CF job

Boston Red Sox OF Grady Sizemore is making his first ever start in left field Thursday, April 10, with OF Jackie Bradley Jr. getting the nod in center. Manager John Farrell isn't committing this arraignment permanently, since the team likes to get OF Jonny Gomes some playing time in left field. How well Bradley continues to play might determine how often Farrell deploys this alignment. Bradley has a slash line of .400/.478/.978 this year and is 6-for-12 with two doubles, four runs, four RBIs and three walks in the last four games. Sizemore has had some defensive lapses lately. If the Red Sox continue to start Sizemore and Bradley when OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) returns, it could mean a loss of playing time for Gomes and OF Daniel Nava, who has had a slow start to the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley should be owned in all leagues now that he's gotten his opportunity this year and is running with it. Sizemore's defensive shortcomings in center will help Bradley's cause.
