BALTIMORE (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays have signed veteran outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to a one-year contract ahead of Tuesday night’s game in Baltimore.

Bradley, 32, was released Thursday by the Boston Red Sox. He’s batting .210 with three home runs and 29 RBIs in 92 games this season.

“Every year is a tough year. You go through a lot of different things,” Bradley said. “Obviously I didn’t have the offensive year that I wanted.”

Bradley agreed to a two-year, $24 million deal with Milwaukee in March 2021 and played one season for the Brewers. Then he was traded to Boston in December and played a second stint with the Red Sox.

Bradley was the 2018 AL Championship Series MVP.

A native of Richmond, Virginia, Bradley said his family comes to Camden Yards often — and Tuesday would be no different.

“My mom was on it,” he said.

The Blue Jays have designated right-hander Matt Peacock for assignment and optional infielder Otto Lopez to Triple-A Buffalo.
