Will Middlebrooks To AAA?; Holt Or Sutton Up?

Mediocre Will Hunting
It's looking more and more likely that the deeply slumping Will Middlebrooks will be sent down to AAA soon and either Brock Holt or Drew Sutton will be called up to Boston. It makes no sense to have Middlebrooks languish in his ineffectiveness one or two times a week—he'd benefit much more with steady at-bats at Pawtucket. This move would also allow Jose Iglesias to start every day at either third or short—with Holt or or Sutton filling in at the hot corner. The Fenway Snark website raises the interesting issue of whether we should think of Middlebrooks as big-league ready or just as a prospect. Food for thought.
