Simmer down, Twitter.

After causing a stir by being removed from the Pawtucket Red Sox game in the sixth inning, Jackie Bradley Jr. is not on the move. The top prospect suffered a very minor elbow injury during tonight's game and was removed for precautionary reasons, according to a source.

Bradley Jr. has been the subject of trade rumors throughout the week as the Sox chase high-cost starters like Jake Peavy and Cliff Lee. While he still may be dealt in a blockbuster at the deadline, he was not removed from tonight's game because a deal is close.
