A hero of the 2016 postseason is making his way back to a contender. According to a report, the Boston Red Sox have landed Rajai Davis from the Oakland Athletics.

What this means about Jackie Bradley Jr.’s injury remains to be seen. It could mean that the Red Sox at least fear that his injury is worse than originally hoped. It could also mean that Boston is just looking for a little insurance in its outfield and speed off of the bench.

With Oakland, Davis hit .233/.294/.353 with five home runs and 26 stolen bases.
