BOSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox recalled outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. from Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday and sent right-hander Steven Wright down to the International League.

Bradley was hitting .315 in 18 games at Pawtucket. He played 127 games for Boston last year.

Wright was recalled to the majors for the second time this season on Monday but he did not appear in the game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
