News: Middlebrooks (calf) could begin a rehab assignment next week, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Middlebrooks tested the calf with some light running in the outfield prior to Wednesday's game, and it seems everything went well. He's already swinging a bat and taking part in fielding drills, but any chance of him returning Monday (when first eligible) seems to be out the window.(RotoWire, )

News: Middlebrooks (calf) took 40 swings and fielded grounders Friday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Impact: While Middlebrooks is able to take part in certain baseball activities, he has still not been cleared to run. It remains to be seen if he will be ready to go when he is eligible to be activated from the disabled list April 20.(RotoWire, )

News: Middlebrooks (calf) expects to start hitting balls off a tee Friday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Middlebrooks was sent to the DL with a calf strain, and although it's not quite fully healed, his condition seems to be improving. After Friday, the next step for Boston's third baseman will be to begin taking batting practice.(RotoWire, )

News: Middlebrooks (calf) is scheduled to initiate baseball activities later this week, Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports. Impact: The Grade 1 strain he suffered last week isn't expected to sideline him much beyond the 15-day minimum (if at all), but he'll likely need a short minor league rehab assignment before returning.(RotoWire, )
Sun. Apr 6, 2014
News: The Boston Red Sox have placed third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled list with a right calf strain. The move is retroactive to April 5.

News: Middlebrooks was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 1 calf strain Sunday, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports. Impact: Middlebrooks received an MRI on Sunday after being scratched from Saturday's lineup, which confirmed the Grade 1 strain in his calf. Brock Holt was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to take his spot on the roster, and he's expected to split third base duties with Jonathan Herrera while Middlebrooks is out.(RotoWire, )

News: Middlebrooks (calf) actually has a strain rather than a cramp and will have an MRI on Sunday, Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports. Impact: Middlebrooks was scratched from Saturday's lineup, and the calf injury was originally thought to be a cramp. A strain would be more serious. Given that he'll have an MRI, it's logical to assume he will miss Sunday's game at the minimum.(RotoWire, )

News: Middlebrooks was scratched from the lineup Saturday with a right calf cramp, the Boston Herald reports. Impact: Middlebrooks' scratch was not announced until the Red Sox took the field for the top of the first inning when Jonathan Herrera took third base.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 3, 2014
News: Middlebrooks went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's win at Baltimore. Impact: Middlebrooks was hitless in his first two games of the season after having a nice spring. He doesn't have a lot of competition at third base, so he'll probably have a fairly long leash even if he struggles early on.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 3, 2014
News: Middlebrooks went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Wednesday night's win over Baltimore. Impact: Middlebrooks had a stellar spring, one that made us forget his plate struggles in 2013, but is off to a slow start. He's hitless in eight plate appearances while striking out three times.(RotoWire, )
