Red Sox are tendering a 2020 contract to center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr.

As the deadline for MLB teams to tender contracts to arbitration players fast approaches, there have been questions as to whether or not the Red Sox would reach out to center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. Earlier on, these doubts looked like they were put to bed, as Alex Speier, of the Boston Globe, tweeted out that the Sox would, in fact, be tendering a contract to JBJ.

The news came just before the announcement that the Sox had traded catcher Sandy Leon to the Cleveland Indians for minor league prospect Adenys Bautista.
