Red Sox Announce Roster Moves

Prior to tonight's game against the Baltimore Orioles, the Boston Red Sox made the following roster moves:

· Outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. was placed on the 10-day disabled list (retroactive to April 9) with a right knee sprain.

· Shortstop Xander Bogaerts was reinstated from the bereavement list.

· Left-handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list.

In addition, infielder Deven Marrero was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket following yesterday's game against the Detroit Tigers.

President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski made the announcement.

Bradley, 26, started each of the Red Sox' first four games of the 2017 season, going 4-for-14 (.286) with a triple, two walks, two RBI, one stolen base, and three runs scored. In 2016, he started the All-Star Game in left field and was named a finalist for the Rawlings Gold Glove Award in center field. Bradley hit .267 (149-for-558) with 30 doubles, seven triples, 26 home runs, 87 RBI, and an .835 OPS last season, while his 13 assists led major league center fielders. From April 24-May 25, 2016, he batted .415 (44-for-106) during a 29-game hitting streak, tied for the fourth-longest in Red Sox history.

Bogaerts, 24, started each of the Red Sox' first two games of the 2017 season, going 2-for-9 with a pair of stolen bases. He started the 2016 All-Star Game at shortstop for the American League and earned his second consecutive Louisville Slugger Silver Slugger Award, setting career highs in games (157), runs (115), home runs (21), RBI (89), walks (58), and steals (13). A native of Aruba, Bogaerts leads the Red Sox in games (459), hits (519), and runs (259) since the start of the 2015 season.

Pomeranz, 28, was placed on the disabled list on March 30 with a left forearm flexor strain. Acquired from the San Diego Padres following his first career All-Star Game last season, the left-hander finished 2016 with a 3.32 ERA (63 ER/170.2 IP) and a .217 opponent batting average over a career-high 30 starts. Pomeranz has gone 25-36 with a 3.80 ERA (195 ER/462.1 IP) in 138 career games (79 starts) with the Colorado Rockies (2011-13), Oakland Athletics (2014-15), Padres (2016), and Red Sox (2016).

Marrero, 26, was recalled by Boston on April 6 but did not appear in any major league games. Since making his big league debut for Boston in 2015, the Miami native has gone 13-for-65 (.200) with eight runs scored and one home run in 38 games, appearing defensively at third base (17 games), shortstop (10 games), and second base (nine games). In 484 minor league games, Marrero has a .246 batting average (453-for-1,842) with 88 doubles, seven triples, 17 home runs, 165 RBI, and 89 stolen bases.
