Red Sox | Will Middlebrooks not worried

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks (wrist) is not concerned with his wrist injury after being hit by a pitch in a Grapefruit League spring game Wednesday, Feb. 27. "It's not as serious as we thought it was. It was just a scare," Middlebrooks said. Officially, he will be re-evaluated Thursday, Feb. 28.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like fantasy owners dodged a huge bullet, but aren't out of the woods just yet since Middlebrooks isn't a doctor. If he gets the green light Thursday when he is re-evaluated, he will remain a top-15 option at his position in mixed fantasy leagues, worth a look in the middle rounds on draft day.
