NEW YORK -- While Jackie Bradley Jr. is still expected to rejoin the Red Sox at some point this month, he is still working on the offensive inconsistencies that led to his demotion to Triple-A on Aug. 18.

"Jackie was well aware when we sat down and described what needs to be the focal point," said manager John Farrell. "I don't know that necessarily needs to be repeated right now. The reports have been mixed. There have been days as he's executed between the lines as he's been working on, but it's still a work in progress."

In 14 games for the PawSox, Bradley is hitting .212 with one homer, five RBIs and a .519 OPS.

Bradley will be with Pawtucket for a playoff run that starts on Wednesday.

Top prospect Mookie Betts has been playing center since Bradley got sent down. Rusney Castillo is expected to take over that spot when he's gotten enough at-bats in the Minors. Castillo will be with Double-A Portland for the playoffs.
