Despite reports of interest from the Mets, Jackie Bradley Jr. brings his talents to Milwaukee.
The former Red Sox outsider signed a two-year deal with the brewers worth $ 24 million, according to ESPN. The deal includes a waiver after the first year.
Bradley Jr. is considered one of the best off-field defenders in the league, winning the Golden Glove in 2018 and was the best outfielder left in a free agency. His bat is more frantic, holding a medium wad for a career. 239, but he hit .283 with seven households in the shortened 2020 campaign.
The Mets negotiated with Bradley Jr. after losing to the Blue Jays in the George Springer lottery. In the end, the Mets opted for smaller ticket options, with Kevin Pillar and Albert Almora signing.
Pilar and Almora are expected to compete for time in the center field with Brandon Nimo.
