    • Will Middlebrooks: Headed to free agency
      By RotoWire Staff

      Middlebrooks declined his outright assignment to Triple-A Round Rock and is now a free agent. Middlebrooks passed through waivers untouched and has decided to test the waters of free agency. The 29-year-old hit an unimpressive .211/.231/.368 in 39 plate appearances for the big club this season, but he should be able to find a minor-league deal somewhere given his respectable minor-league numbers over the previous two campaigns.

    • Middlebrooks started at third base and went 1-for-4 in Monday's 11-2 loss to the Astros. The Rangers have leaned on Drew Robinson as their primary third baseman with Adrian Beltre limited to designated-hitting duties while he recovers from a hamstring injury, but Middlebrooks received the starting nod at the hot corner in the series opener. Neither Robinson nor Middlebrooks has made much of an impact offensively in September, but with few attractive healthy alternatives laying in wait, it's expected that the duo will continue to see all of the reps at the position until the regular season concludes Sunday.

    • Middlebrooks struck out in his pinch-hitting appearance during the Rangers' 8-1 loss to the Mariners on Wednesday. Since being added to the big-league squad as a Sept. 1 callup, Middlebrooks has seen more action than expected, appearing in seven of the Rangers' last 11 games and batting 3-for-16 with three RBI. Injuries to Mike Napoli (leg) and Adrian Beltre (hamstring) have helped Middlebrooks' case for picking up at-bats, but his responsibilities could dwindle once Napoli is cleared to return. Beltre was activated from the 10-day disabled list earlier this week and deployed as a pinch hitter Wednesday, but his injury probably won't allow him to play the field for the rest of the season.

    • Rangers' Will Middlebrooks: Called up by Rangers
      By RotoWire Staff

      Middlebrooks was called up by the Rangers on Friday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The Rangers will reward Middlebrooks for his strong season with Triple-A Round Rock, and it's possible he will see some playing time in the immediate future with Adrian Beltre nursing a hamstring strain. Middlebrooks generated a lot of buzz after hitting 15 homers in 75 games with the Red Sox as a 23-year-old in 2012, but ever since his contact woes and lack of patience have been exploited by big-league hurlers.

    • Rangers' Will Middlebrooks: Activated at Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Middlebrooks (hand) is back in action for Triple-A Round Rock and has home runs in his first two games since coming off the DL on Thursday. He also homered in his last game before landing on the DL with a broken left hand on April 17, so he has technically homered in three straight games. His season line is .309/.377/.691 with a 13:5 K:BB in 55 at-bats, but it seems clear that he is a Quadruple-A hitter at this point.
