After missing 16 games, Will Middlebrooks is back in the Red Sox lineup.
The third baseman was placed on the disabled list with a low back strain in late May, and finished his five-game rehab assignment in time to be activated for Monday night’s game against the Rays. Middlebrooks had five hits, two home runs and six RBIs in 17 at-bats at Triple-A Pawtucket.
Middlebrooks chatted with Jenny Dell prior to Monday night’s matchup to talk about returning to the Sox’ lineup. Hear what he had to say in the above video.
