Found June 10, 2013 on The Nosebleeds:
Will Middlebrooks is officially off of the disabled list and back in the Red Sox lineup. Middlebrooks was activated from the DL and will make the start for the Red Sox tonight against the Tampa Bay Rays. Middlebrooks’ was placed on the DL in late May after suffering a lower back strain against the Cleveland Indians. In lineup posted outside Red Sox clubhouse Will Middlebrooks is back batting 8th. — Nick Cafardo (@nickcafardo) June 10, 2013 There was indications that the Sox could allow Middlebrooks to remain in the minors for a while after his activation, especially with Jose Iglesias playing well in the third baseman’s absence, but Middlebrooks hit well during his rehab stint with Pawtucket- going 5 of 17 with two homers, six RBIs and a 1.094 OPS in five games. In a corresponding move, Pedro Ciriaco was designated for assignment. If Ciriaco clears waivers or is claimed by another team, that opens up a 40-man spot for the Red Sox to work with. The post Will Middlebrooks activated from DL, will start tonight for Sox appeared first on The Nosebleeds.

Jose Iglesias, Will Middlebrooks ‘Could End Up Sharing Third Base’ As Iglesias Continues Hot Streak (Video)

It seems Jose Iglesias will be getting his shot as a utility infielder. Iglesias stepped up into the role in the absence of injured Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks, and made a sound case for why he should get to stick with the big league club. Iglesias’ success seems to be a blessing and a curse for manager John Farrell, who benefits from Iglesias’ strong play but also...

Jose Iglesias Is Back In Tonight's Lineup

Well, Jose Iglesias did not "ride the pine" very long. Manager John Farrell has re-inserted the defensive (and now offensive) whiz in the Red Sox lineup. Iglesias will hit ninth and play third base—one day after the return of Will Middlebrooks. Mike Napoli returns to first base after taking Monday off, and David Ross will spell the red-hot Jarrod Saltalamacchia behind...

Red Sox-Rays Live: Will Middlebrooks Back in Lineup Against Tampa Bay, Pedro Ciriaco Designated for Assignment

2:45 p.m.: Will Middlebrooks is back, and the odd man out, as has been speculated, is Pedro Ciriaco. Ciriaco had his shining moments last season on a team that had little else to offer, but he hasn’t been anything but an average fill-in on the big league roster this year. With Jose Iglesias playing some truly inspired baseball in Middlebrooks’ absence, it only made sense to keep...
