The team hasn't made it official yet, but this afternoon there was another good sign Jackie Bradley Jr. will indeed make the Opening Day roster: a picture Tweeted by the Boston Red Sox showing the rookie boarding the team bus.
The Red Sox have until 3 p.m. on Sunday to make a final decision on the phenom outfielder, but all signs indicate Bradley will become the first Boston player to jump from Double A to the Opening Day major league roster since Shea Hillenbrand did it in 2001.
