The Red Sox have made a roster move before today’s series finale with the Milwaukee Brewers, placing third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day DL with a Grade 1 calf strain, manager John Farrell announced.
Middlebrooks, 25, is 3-for-13 (.231) with a double, a home run, one walk and four strikeouts in four games this season. He hit .227/.271/.425 (87 OPS+) with 17 home runs last season and was sent to the minors at one point, with Xander Bogaerts taking over at third base in the postseason.
To fill the roster spot, the team has called up utility man Brock Holt.
