BOSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox reinstated outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. from the paternity leave list on Friday and optioned Rusney Castillo to Triple-A.

Bradley left the team Tuesday to be with his wife, Erin, for the birth of the couple's first child. Their daughter was born on Wednesday - the same day Bradley was selected AL player of the month for May.

Bradley had a 29-game hitting streak from April 24-May 25, the longest in the major leagues this season. He batted .381 in May with eight homers and 24 RBIs.
