Bradley back in AFL; Boggs a free agent
Left-hander Jed Bradley, one of the Brewers’ two first-round Draft picks in 2011, is back on the Peoria Javelinas’ roster today in the prospect-rich Arizona Fall League. The Brewers just announced that he would take righty Tyler Thornburg’s spot.
You might remember that it was Thornburg replacing Bradley last month, after Bradley developed a very minor groin issue. Thornburg pitched in three AFL games, allowing two earned runs and three hits in 5 1/2 innings. He also picked up a win.
Assistant GM Gord Ash said Bradley was simply ready to pitch, so the team gave him back his spot.
The club also announced that oufielder Brandon Boggs had elected free agency. Boggs bounced between the Brewers and Triple-A Nashville during the first half of 2011, and wound up hitting .241 with nine homers in 94 games with the Sounds. With that move, let the Brewers’ offseason begin!
