News: Middlebrooks (calf) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Middlebrooks plans to play Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, with his sights set on returning to the lineup for Boston's weekend series in Toronto. The Red Sox have struggled to tread water at third base with the likes of Brock Holt, Ryan Roberts and Jonathan Herrera, so Middlebrooks' return would provide a major boost to the lineup.(RotoWire, )

News: Middlebrooks (calf) is slated to start a rehab assignment Monday or Tuesday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports. Impact: Middlebrooks experienced a bump in the road late in the week due to a high fever, which will seemingly be behind him in a few more days. If all goes well and a setback is avoided during the assignment, he could be handling the hot corner for the Red Sox within the week.(RotoWire, )

News: Middlebrooks (calf) is dealing with the flu and had a 102-degree fever Thursday, Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports. Impact: Middlebrooks isn't expected to begin a rehab assignment any earlier than next week, so the illness will likely be a non-factor. If anything, it could perhaps bump his rehab process back a day or two, but that shouldn't be assumed. Ill or not, the third baseman did not seem to be on track to return by April 20, the date he's first eligible to play.(RotoWire, )

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.

News: Middlebrooks (calf) expects to start hitting balls off a tee Friday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Tue. Apr 8, 2014
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, )
