(6/30/2014) Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks (finger), who had to shut down his rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket, fielded grounders at third base Sunday, per WEEI.com. 

"He’ll hit [on Monday] and he’s got some swelling in the finger and we’ll see how he comes in," Pawtucket manager Kevin Boles said. "It’s just one of those things where he’s got to get that swelling down, and throwing is the last thing that he needs to get through. Swinging the bat, he hasn’t felt it as much, but the throwing and having that carry and the amount of reps with the throwing program just to make sure that the finger is right."

"We may take a look at him in the outfield just to answer any questions of flexibility that we can before a decision on the roster is to be made," Farrell said. "If that gives us ability to find at-bats for Will if he were to come back here in that capacity, so be it."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks, who is working his way back from a broken index finger, has been cleared to take swings, the Providence Journal reports on Monday. However, Middlebrooks is still experiencing some discomfort throwing because his finger isn't fully healed. He remains without a timetable for return.

Will Middlebrooks yet to gain full range of motion in finger


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks has yet to gain full range of motion in his injured finger and won't swing a bat until he does, MLB.com reports.

"Still trying to gain full range of motion with the index finger," manager John Farrell said. "That's not there yet. He won't start to swing a bat until he's able to gain full range of motion, which would indicate that the healing of the fracture is moving along as anticipated. He's still in kind of an inactive period."

Middlebrooks will have trouble finding playing time when he returns, as Xander Bogaerts has shifted to third base.


Will Middlebrooks improving, still without a timetable


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

"Will has almost full extension of his finger, yet [he] still has some discoloration and swelling," Farrell said. "A timetable hasn't been set for when he'll resume baseball activities."


Will Middlebrooks stays back in Boston for X-rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks remained back in Boston while the team traveled to Florida for a five-game road trip, the Boston Globe reports. Middlebrooks was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday after taking a line drive off his right index finger the previous day. He is hitting .197 with two homers and nine RBI in 71 at-bats.

Will Middlebrooks declines to talk about possible backup role


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks, who appears doomed to backup status upon the signing of free agent shortstop Stephen Drew, is mum about his new situation, per ESPN. The move will likely result in the shifting of promising rookie Xander Bogaerts to third base.

Middlebrooks is out with a fractured finger that general manager Ben Cherington has deemed will keep him sidelined for "weeks not days." But he is likely without a starting job when he returns.

The 25-year-old Middlebrooks, who was wearing a heavily-wrapped splint on his index finger Thursday, owns a .197 batting average and hasn't managed a multi-hit game since April 25.


Will Middlebrooks might be out of chances


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/20/2014) If you own Will Middlebrooks in Fantasy, you know he's on the DL now with a fractured finger. What you may not know is that he may not return.

At least not in a meaningful role. The Red Sox brought back Stephen Drew Tuesday and plan to playing him at shortstop, with Xander Bogaerts sliding over to third base.

Granted, Bogaerts hasn't exactly set the world on fire in his rookie season, but he has reached base at a respectable .369 clip and is clearly a bigger part of the team's future than Middlebrooks, whose swing-at-anything approach never meshed with the organizational philosophy.

Of course, between now and Middlebrooks' return 4-6 weeks from now, Drew or Bogaerts could suffer an injury that gives Middlebrooks another chance, but as things stand now, stashing him appears to be a lost cause in mixed leagues.


Will Middlebrooks the odd man out?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) With the Red Sox re-signing Stephen Drew, the plan is for him to take over at shortstop with rookie Xander Bogaerts moving to third, reports the Providence Journal. That would leave third baseman Will Middlebrooks as the odd man out.

Middlebrooks is on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured finger, his second DL stint this season, and has been ineffective when in the lineup. He's hitting .197/.305/.324 with two homers and nine RBI in 71 at-bats.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
