Middlebrooks On 15-Day DL
BOSTON (CBS) — Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right calf strain.
Infielder Brock Holt was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Middlebrooks, who was scratched from Saturday night’s lineup, started each of Boston’s first four games of the regular season, going 3-for-13 (.231) with two runs, a double, a home run, an RBI, and a walk. The 25-year-old homered off Marco Estrada in Friday’s home opener against the Milwaukee Brewers at Fenway Park.
