Padres' Bud Black: Middlebrooks 'potentially' to see more SS action
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/27/15) Padres third baseman Will Middlebrooks might see more action at shortstop in the future, per 1090 Sports Radio.

Padres' Will Middlebrooks hits fifth HR of season

Padres' Will Middlebrooks starting at shortstop on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Padres infielder Will Middlebrooks is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers. He is batting seventh and playing shortstop for manager Bud Black. Typically a third baseman, this is the first time in his professional career that Middlebrooks has started a game at short.
He did play two-thirds of an inning at shortstop earlier this year, marking the first time he's ever played the position.
"We’ve talked about it off and on ever since spring training, the possibility of Will going over there," manager Bud Black said, per the San Diego Union-Tribune.
After a dreadful start to the season offensively, Middlebrooks has started to come alive at the plate. He has a hit in six of his last eight games, batting .300 over that stretch.
|2014 Summary: For the second year in a row, Will Middlebrooks failed to live up to expectations set by a promising rookie season, and again, injuries played a role. Middlebrooks served DL stints with calf and finger injuries, and he missed the final six games of the season with a sprained hand. When he did play, Middlebrooks -- who is notorious for poor plate discipline -- struck out even more often than he did in his two previous seasons, and his power was almost completely absent. He hit just two home runs and 10 doubles in 215 at-bats, finishing with a .191 batting average. Middlebrooks will try for a fresh start with the Padres, who traded for him in December.
Playing time status: Middlebrooks will first have to fend off Yangervis Solarte for playing time at third base, and then he will likely need to improve at the plate and in the field to keep the starting role.
2015 Outlook: Middlebrooks has struggled to make contact and hit for average the last two seasons, but as recently as 2013, he showed he could hit for power. Perhaps with improved health, Middlebrooks can finally pick up where his 2012 season left off, which would make him relevant for standard mixed league owners. He's enough of a risk, both in terms of playing time and performance, that he is more of a deep league option for now.
