Middlebrooks Moved to the DL with Strained Calf

Will Middlebrooks

Red Sox third baseman, Will Middlebrooks was placed on the disabled list with a strained right calf. He joins fellow 2013 World Series Champion Red Sox teammate Shane Victorino on the DL. Victorino has a strained right hamstring. Pawtucket third baseman, Brock Holt was recalled to fulfill third baseman duties. Holt manned third base last year during the 2013 World Series Championship season.

In Pawtucket, Holt, acquired in 2012 from the Pittsburgh Pirates, is batting .364 over the first 3 games he played with Pawtucket this season. Last year Holt made 17 starts with the Red Sox, appearing in 26 games overall. Last year he hit .203 (12-for-59) with the ball club

Middlebrooks’ numbers looked good during spring training, and during the first four games of the regular season. He batted .231, going 3 for 13 in the first four regular season games. Middlebrooks demonstrated his ability to get on base with two runs, a double, and a walk. Fans were encouraged that he had turned his offensive game around after last year’s difficulties at the plate.
