Red Sox | Will Middlebrooks could move up order
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 14:55:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks is hitting ninth in the order Friday, Aug. 1, for the sixth time in as many games since he was called up from the minors. However, he could move closer toward the middle of the order with the team struggling against southpaws. "That possibility certainly exists," manager John Farrell said. "He's going to tell us when he's ready. As we've seen of late, the bottom half of the lineup has fluctuated a little bit, trying to ride a little bit more of the hot hand at times and when the matchups present themselves to be an advantage. That can happen in time." Middlebrooks is 7-for-18 with two doubles, two RBIs and three runs since coming up.
