Red Sox demote CF Bradley Jr., recall OF/INF Betts

The Red Sox optioned center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to Triple-A Pawtucket and recalled outfielder/infielder Mookie Betts.

The moves were made before last night’s game against the Los Angeles Angels.

Boston Manager John Farrell said Bradley Jr. was sent down to work on changes in his swing. The 24-year old was hitting just .216 with one homer and 30 RBI in 112 games.

The 21-year old Betts, a second baseman in the club’s system at the start of the season, is back in the majors for the third time this year. He moved to the outfield at Pawtucket before hitting .244 with a homer and two RBI over 13 games in his previous two stints with the Red Sox.
