Bradley went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Thursday's 7-5 loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Those who stuck by Bradley during his early-season struggles are reaping the rewards. Six of his seven homers have been delivered in the last 66 at-bats while he's posted a .991 OPS with 15 RBI during that span. He's raised his batting average to .226, up from .172, over the past 19 games. When manager John Farrell is looking to get the right-handed hitting Chris Young in the lineup against a left-hander, as he did Thursday, he's benching Andrew Benintendi, not the hot-hitting Bradley.

Bradley went 2-for-3 with two walks, a double, a home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Tuesday's 13-7 win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The center fielder's last four hits have all gone for extra bases (two doubles, two homers), although it's taken him five games to collect them. Bradley's .232 BABIP is more than 80 points below his mark in each of the last two seasons, so once his luck begins to turn around his .214/.311/.419 slash line should improve in a hurry.

Bradley went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Bradley's slow start to 2017 has been a disappointment. As recently as May 12, he was hitting .171 with a .259 slugging percentage. Some of that may be due a miserable .234 BABIP. but there's some thought he's deserved a better fate. As Mike Petriello of MLB.com explains, exit velocity correlates to batting success. Batters have hit .541 with a 1.074 slugging percentage on balls with an exit velocity of at least 95 mph, and just .218 with a .255 slugging when they hit the ball 94 mph and under. Bradley is one of just 18 players who have hit more than 50 percent of their batted balls at 95 mph or above. It's just a matter of improving his launch angle, which appears to be happening lately. He's gone 11-for-39 (.282) with three doubles and three home runs in his last 11 games.

Bradley is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bradley is batting below the Mendoza Line over his past 30 games, so he'll get a night off with lefty Martin Perez toeing the rubber for Texas. Andrew Benintendi will slide over to center field to replace him while Chris Young enters the lineup to fill out the lineup.

Bradley went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-inning win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Bradley's two-run shot in the seventh were the Red Sox first runs of the evening and got the offense rolling. Since a three-game sabbatical from the starting lineup, JBJ has posted four multi-hit games in his last seven games (8-for-27) with three homers and four RBI. In the process, he's raised his average from .172 to .212.

Bradley went 2-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

It's his third multi-hit performance in his last six games, but Bradley failed to collect a hit in the other three. The 27-year-old hasn't been able to put together one of his usual hot streaks yet this season, leaving him stuck with a .200/.261/.350 slash line, but his .236 BABIP suggests more hits should be coming soon enough.
