Bradley went 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI in Boston's 8-3 win over Kansas City on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Bradley has been in a free fall in August, dragging a .167 batting average (15-for-90) with 32 strikeouts in the previous 24 games entering Saturday's game. The slump was enough to drop him in the order to the No. 9 hole. His production Saturday night, coming off the white hot Danny Duffy of the Royals, could be the start of a turnaround.

Bradley will drop to ninth in the order for Saturday's game against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Bradley's prolonged slump has dropped him all the way to the bottom of the order as he's hit just .156 over the last 30 games and .080 over the last week. He'll have the tough task of trying to break out of that slump Saturday against Cy Young candidate Danny Duffy.

Bradley is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays, according to Sean McAdam of CSN New England.

EDGE Analysis

Bradley is hitting just .192 in the month of August, and fellow outfielder Chris Young rejoined the roster Monday, so manager John Farrell decided to give Bradley a day off while giving Young a start right away.

Bradley went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and four RBI in Boston's 8-1 win over the Orioles in a six-inning, rain-shortened game Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Bradley's been slumping, having hit just .187 over the last 20 games, but his power stroke has come alive with three bombs in the last four games. The homer was his 20th of the season and is double his previous career best in the majors (10 in 2015) and well more than his previous high at any level (13 combined between MLB and Triple-A in 2013). He's had some peaks and valleys to his season, and smoothing out his production is something to work on, but he's far better than the lost hitter we saw from 2013 to the early portion of 2015.

Bradley (toe) is not in the lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bradley is still battling soreness in his right big toe, which led to his removal from Friday's game in the eighth inning. The issue doesn't look to be anything overly serious -- Bradley fouled a ball off of his foot earlier in the week -- but the outfielder could miss a few days until the discomfort subsides. Boston will go with Andrew Benintendi in center field Saturday, and he'll bat ninth in the order against Arizona's Archie Bradley.

Bradley said his right big toe is injured and it has affected his running, Annie Maroon of MassLive.com reports. He had recently hit a foul ball off his foot, resulting in the sore toe. "I'm not able to push off like I want to, get the breaks that I want, but I tried to play as hard as I could through it," Bradley said.

EDGE Analysis

Bradley was removed from Friday night's game in the eighth inning, which may have been due to the toe. In the inning prior, both Bradley and left fielder Andrew Benintendi converged on a fly ball that either might have caught, but ultimately Benintendi did. That was a sign to manager John Farrell that the toe was bothering Bradley. "The play that Benintendi had to dive for, that's usually a ball that Jackie's got in his back pocket," Farrell said. "But he's banged up. And he tripped on the first play, there's no question, he tripped. It wasn't turf. But he's not running at full speed right now."
