Red Sox Option Will Middlebrooks to AAA Pawtucket

Red Sox NewsThe Boston Red Sox have decided that the best remedy to get third baseman Will Middlebrooks on track is some time in the minor leagues and the team optioned the 24-year-old to AAA Pawtucket today and purchased the contract of infielder Brandon Snyder.

Middelbrooks has struggled in 2013 hitting .192 with a .617 OPS,  and has not played in five of the last six games.

Jose Iglesias  who took over for Middlebrooks while he was on the disabled list with a lower back strain is getting the lion’s share of the playing time at third base. The surprising 23-year-old Iglesias, is batting .426 in 33 games this season, and has won the favor of manager John Farrell.

“It’s hard not to look at two or three hits every night being two or three hits every night,” Farrell said last weekend.

Middlebrooks said, “Am I disappointed in myself? Absolutely, because that’s what I can control. I can control how hard I work and what I do to perform. That’s something I have to change up in myself.”

Snyder was hitting .267 with 10 homers and 37 RBIs with Pawtucket this season.
