News: Bradley was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Bradley will return to occupy a spot on the team's expanded September roster, a little over two weeks after being demoted due to his offensive struggles. The 24-year-old is an outstanding defender, but his bat remained stagnant upon his assignment to Pawtucket, as he went on to bat just .212/.246/.273 in his 14 games with the affiliate. Further, there have been reports that the coaching staff just hasn't been able to get through to Bradley, so he may only see opportunities as a late-game replacement and as a pinch-hitter over the final weeks of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Red Sox manager Ben Cherington said concerns about Bradley's willingness to work with team officials and coaches were not a factor in his demotion to Triple-A Pawtucket, WEEI.com reports. A report on the blog Over The Monster cited two major league sources who said there was growing frustration with Bradley due to his "stubbornness with the coaching staff." Impact: Both sources said that Bradley's attitude, coupled with an unwillingness to work with coaches to fix his swing, led to his demotion. Cherington, while not disavowing the notion that coaches could not reach Bradley, said the decision to demote was based solely on the player's offensive struggles. Bradley took to Twitter to defend himself. Whatever the case, the player and the team have some work to do to repair the relationship. Cherington added that Bradley is expected to rejoin the Red Sox after the Triple-A playoffs are over.(RotoWire, )
