JBJ was at a former teammate’s wedding when he found out about the trade back to the Red Sox. He originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston.

Just before the MLB lockout went into effect, Jackie Bradley Jr. was traded to the Boston Red Sox after one season with the Milwaukee Brewers.

The transaction, in which the Red Sox sent Hunter Renfroe to the National League, was only notable for Bradley’s reunion with Boston, where he spent the first eight seasons of his career. After all, he hit an awful .163 in 387 at-bats for the Brew Crew in 2021 and will in all likelihood serve as a backup for the Red Sox going forward.

Rather, the most exciting part of the deal involved where Bradley was when he found out he was headed back to Boston. According to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe, Bradley was at the wedding of none other than his former teammate Mookie Betts in California.

Gotta love Betts having a phone-free wedding and encouraging his guests to just enjoy the moment. Although it certainly must have led to some interesting conversations after Bradley returned from his phone break. He must wonder how the boyfriend felt about his guest being traded to the team that sent him to the Los Angeles Dodgers in February 2020 despite winning AL MVP less than two years earlier.

Betts and Bradley were drafted by the Red Sox in 2011, Theo Epstein’s final season as general manager, a draft that included such productive major leaguers as Matt Barnes and Travis Shaw.

During eight seasons with Boston, Bradley hit .239 with 98 home runs, 376 RBI and a .732 OPS. He was an All-Star in 2016 and won a Gold Glove in 2018, the same season he was named MVP of the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros.

Bradley, 31, has one year remaining on a two-year, $24 million deal he signed with the Brewers in March 2021.
