Will Middlebrooks is the top-rated prospect in the Red Sox organization. He is also an extremely confident and motivated young man.
The 23-year-old third baseman has quickly ascended through the ranks of the Red Sox farm system. His impressive power has caught the attention of many opposing pitchers as well as that of scouts around the MLB.
Middlebrooks isn't quite ready to man the hot corner at Fenway just yet, at least according to Red Sox GM Ben Cherington. But the talented infielder remains focused on improving his plate discipline in Pawtucket and is hopeful of joining the big club soon.
