Bradley promoted to Class AA by Red Sox

Posted: Updated:

Salem, VA (WWBT)- A day after appearing in the California-Carolina All-Star Game, Prince George native Jackie Bradley Jr. is getting more good news.  The outfielder has been promoted to Class AA Portland and joined the Sea Dogs on Wednesday.

Bradley, who was the 40th overall pick by Red Sox in the 2011 draft, was with the Advanced Class A Salem Red Sox to open the season.  The former Prince George star's numbers in Salem were nothing short of spectacular, as he hit .359 and led his team in hits, runs, doubles and walks.  He currently ranks fourth in batting average in the entire Red Sox minor league system.

The former South Carolina Gamecock now joins a Portland team that could definitely use his services.  The Sea Dogs are 29-41 and one spot out of last place in the Eastern League's Western Division.  Bradley could get into the line-up as soon as Thursday when Portland hosts Harrisburg.  He told NBC12 on Wednesday night that he had already arrived in Portland, following news of his promotion.
