BALTIMORE (AP) Outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. has been placed on the paternity list by the Boston Red Sox.

Boston made the move hours before facing the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night.

Bradley has a .331 batting average and has the longest hitting streak in the majors this season at 29 games.

The Red Sox filled his spot by recalling outfielder Rusney Castillo from Triple-A Pawtucket. Castillo began the season with Boston and made one start before being optioned to Pawtucket on April 15.

Boston also activated left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez from the 15-day disabled list and optioned pitcher Heath Hembree to Pawtucket.

Rodriguez, who was sidelined with a right knee injury, was to make his 2016 debut on Tuesday night as Boston's starting pitcher.
