Padres' Will Middlebrooks hits safely in seven of last eight games
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Padres third baseman Will Middlebrooks parked his third home run of the season and second in three games Sunday against the Cubs. His two-run homer off Jon Lester tied the game at two in the second inning.
Middlebrooks has hit safely in five straight games and seven of eight. He is batting .290 (9 for 31) with two home runs, three doubles and seven RBI in his last eight games.
Myers, Middlebrooks mash Cubs into submission
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) They have not earned the nickname "The M & M Boys" yet, but Padres hitters Wil Myers and Will Middlebrooks deserve some kudos for their performance Sunday against the Cubs.
The pair keyed a victory with home runs. Middlebrooks ripped a two-run shot in the fourth to tie the game at 2-2, then Myers blasted a three-run homer in the seventh for what proved to be the game-winner.
Myers is off to a particularly strong start this season. His three-hit day, which included two singles, improved his slash line to .333/.348/.511.
"I feel good at the plate. I thought the home run was big, but one thing I've really been working on is the bunting. It's never been a part of my game, ever," Myers said, per MLB.com. "I was able to put down a bunt and get a base hit. Obviously, the home run was great, but to be able to do that in that situation, get a hit right there and give what they take me was good."
Will Middlebrooks hits his first HR as a member of the Padres
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Will Middlebrooks went deep for the first time in a Padres uniform on Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Middlebrooks, who was acquired by the Padres from the Red Sox in a December trade, took Brandon McCarthy deep in the sixth inning for a two-run home run -- his only hit of the night. He finished 1 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI in a 7-4 defeat. He is hitting .154 (2 for 13) with two RBI through the first three games of the season.
Padres' Will Middlebrooks 'in a good position' to start at third base
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/30/15) Padres infielder Will Middlebrooks isn't officially the starting third baseman, but has "put himself in a good position" to be, according to manager Bud Black per U-T San Diego.
Middlebrooks, who is competing with Yangervis Solarte for the starting job, is hitting .333 in 45 plate appearances this spring with two home runs and eight RBI.
Will Middlebrooks, Yangervis Solarte still battling for Padres' 3B job
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Padres manager Bud Black declared that the third base job is "still open".
Will Middlebrooks has started more games at the hot corner, but Yangervis Solarte is still a candidate to win the job, Black said, per UT San Diego's Dennis Lin.
The Padres acquired the 26-year-old Middlebrooks from the Red Sox in a December trade. He's hitting .333, with two home runs and five RBI in 10 games this spring. He's started all 10 at third base and also played third in a split-squad game.
The 27-year-old Solarte was acquired in a trade with the Yankees last July. He's also hitting .333 this spring. Solarte has six starts at third base and three each at second base and first base.
"The beauty of Solarte is that he’s able to move all over the field," Black said, "and we’ve moved him all over the field. That doesn’t discount the fact that he’s still vying for the spot at third base."
|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.
