Uh, because you can still send him down over the next 6 years if he struggles and not impact that control for 2019?

If Bradley Jr. was to be called up prior to April 12 and remain in the major leagues for the next six seasons without spending fewer than 20 days in the minors he would become a free agent after 2018 instead of 2019.
Besides that, when have the Sox let any of their players they viewed as core guys even get to free agency? They locked up pretty much everyone to long term extensions years before they got to that point. So they could easily do that for JBJ if he becomes what they expect him to be.
