Things are about to get really interesting for the Red Sox.  

Jackie Bradley Jr. is hitting .120 for the Red Sox, and David Ortiz is making his way back to the big leagues.

The Baseball Show panel discussed the impending movement.  Red Sox Insider Sean McAdam believes the Red Sox didn't make a mistake bringing Bradley Jr. up to the Major League club.

"I still don't think they made a mistake here." said Sean McAdam, "I know the guy is 0 for his last fourteen and doesn't have a hit in his last eight games. I don't worry about any sort of long-term effect.  He's a mature kid, he doesn't seem to get down on himself."

But the big question is, will Jackie Bradley Jr. bounce back from his struggles in the Majors?

"This will be good for him." added McAdam, "There are others for whom this experience might be detrimental… that's not going to happen with Jackie Bradley Jr."
