Will Middlebrooks, the most recent addition to the Greenville Drive, is off to a slow start in Class A. After 12 games he’s only batting .133.
Nevertheless, the Red Sox have high hopes for Middlebrooks. He’s listed by Baseball America as the Sox’ No. 18 prospect. If you look at this big guy, you feel certain it’s only a matter of time.
However, he wasn’t too happy at this recent at-bat when he popped up.
