Blue Jays sign former Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to 1-year deal 5:35 PM ET Associated Press BALTIMORE -- The Toronto Blue Jays signed veteran outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to a one-year contract before Tuesday night's game at Baltimore. The 32-year-old Bradley was released by the Boston Red Sox on Thursday. He is batting .210 with three homers and 29 RBIs in 92 games this season. "Every year is a challenging year. You go through a lot of different things," Bradley said. "Obviously haven't had the offensive year that I've wanted." Bradley agreed to a $24 million, two-year contract with Milwaukee in March 2021 and played one season for the Brewers. Then he was traded to Boston in December and played a second stint with the Red Sox. Editor's Picks Bradley was the MVP of the 2018 AL Championship Series. A native of Richmond, Virginia, Bradley said his family often comes to Camden Yards - and Tuesday would be no different. "My mom was on it," he said. The Blue Jays designated right-hander Matt Peacock for assignment and optioned infielder Otto Lopez to Triple-A Buffalo.
