Will Middlebrooks On Return To Lineup: ‘I’m Happy To Be Back’ (Video)


After getting Shane Victorino back Thursday night, the Boston Red Sox lineup will regain even more stability as Will Middlebrooks will be back on the diamond Friday night.

The third baseman has been sidelined since April 4 with a strained right calf and has spent the week playing with Pawtucket to get back into game shape. Middlebrooks was hitting .231 (3-for-13) with a home run in four games before being placed on the disabled list.

Check out the video above to hear from Middlebrooks before the Red Sox open up a three-game series with the Blue Jays in Toronto.
