Jackie Bradley Jr. gets pulled from game, appears to be false alarm

There’s nothing quite like twitter before the trade deadline:

 

 

 

Ranuado was pulled with two men base after throwing his 98th pitch of the night, so there was nothing really suspicious about his exit. Bradley’s was much more interesting, since there was no apparent injury. The Red Sox would be hard-pressed to trade him with Jacoby Ellsbury eligible for free agency at season’s end, and among all of the players rumored to be available, it’s hard to imagine him being moved for anyone other than Cliff Lee or Jeff Samardzija. Still, it doesn’t seem like anything is brewing anyway. Maybe he was hurt or perhaps something else came up.
