The Toronto Blue Jays signed outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to a one-year contract on Tuesday, the team announced.

The Boston Red Sox released the one-time Gold Glove winner Thursday after he slashed .210/.257/.321 with 19 doubles and 29 RBIs in 91 games.

Boston reacquired the 32-year-old in an offseason trade involving the Milwaukee Brewers and Hunter Renfroe. Bradley signed a two-year, $24-million deal with the Brewers in March 2021.

Bradley has appeared in 1,098 games over his 10 major-league seasons, hitting .228/.307/.389 with 107 home runs, 434 RBIs, and 69 steals. The outfielder also has 74 defensive runs saved throughout his career.

The defensive wizard's best season was 2016. He was named an All-Star and posted an .835 OPS with 26 homers and 87 RBIs.

The Blue Jays optioned outfielder Otto Lopez to Triple-A Buffalo and designated right-hander Matt Peacock for assignment in corresponding moves.
