Third baseman Will Middlebrooks was headed for X-rays Friday night after being hit on the right wrist by a
fastball from Cleveland Indians reliever Esmil Rogers in the ninth inning of the Red Sox's 3-2 victory.
Early indications, according to Bobby Valentine, weren't positive. "He got hit pretty good in a bad place,"
Valentine said. "He's going for X-rays. I doubt that he's in there (Saturday night), and I hope it's only a
day. Doubtful of that. He was in a lot of pain and it was in a bad spot. I was hoping it was going to be
more down on the meat, and it was just straight on the bone."
