Middlebrooks has broken wrist?
The Boston Red Sox got a much-needed win on Friday, but what they lost could be more important. Rookie 3B Will Middlebrooks has been a really nice player for the Sox this year, but they may be without him for a long time.
According to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe, Middlebrooks has a broken wrist. He was hit by a pitch in Friday’s game.
“Source: Will Middlebrooks has a broken wrist. #RedSox will call up Danny Valencia for Saturday’s game,” Abraham tweets.
This would most likely mean that he’s done for the season. Not that it really matters for the Red Sox, who are 11 games out of first place and in fourth place in the division. The whole team could break their wrists and it wouldn’t matter.
