Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks goes on 15-day DL; Brock Holt recalled from Triple-A

  • Print

BOSTON - The Boston Red Sox placed struggling third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a fractured right index finger and recalled infielder Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket.

The 25-year old Middlebrooks suffered the injury in Friday's loss to Detroit when he attempted to field a line drive in the first inning. It's his second trip to the DL this season after missing 19 games with a strained right calf in April.

Red Sox manager John Farrell was unsure how long Middlebrooks will be sidelined, but said he'll be in a splint for five to seven days before attempting anything.

"Depending on how he responds to treatment after that, that's when we'll first look to initiate any baseball activities," Farrell said. "It's hard to say how long he'll be down."

Holt was up with the Red Sox earlier this season when Middlebrooks was on the DL. He hit .348 (8 for 23) during that stretch with four RBIs.

Middlebrooks was hitting just .197 with two homers and nine RBIs.

Holt is in the starting lineup for Saturday night's game against the Tigers, playing third and batting ninth.
