Third baseman Will Middlebrooks left Wednesday night's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles in the first inning with soreness in his right wrist and will be re-evaluated on Thursday. Middlebrooks left the game, an eventual 5-3 loss to the Orioles, with what the team called soreness in his right wrist, and he will be re-evaluated on Thursday morning. It was just more of a scare because of the area it was, right where I broke it last year," Middlebrooks said. Middlebrooks, who told Farrell he felt a "zinging sensation" in his wrist on a checked swing in the first inning Wednesday night and came out of the game, took batting practice in Fort Myers on Thursday. Middlebrooks obviously brings a powerful bat in the middle of the lineup, as he posted a .288/.325/.509 line in 286 plate appearances as a rookie in 2012. It was an awkward swing on an up-and-in fastball, one that caused him to drop his bat, fling his helmet into the dugout in frustration and worry that he'd reinjured the right wrist he fractured late last season. No X-rays were taken, he said, and although he's scheduled to be re-evaluated by the Red Sox' medical staff Thursday, he said no MRI has been scheduled and he wouldn't rule out taking batting practice. The Red Sox had a victory before they even took the field for batting practice on Thursday morning.
