Former Red Sox third-baseman Will Middlebrooks is now a free agent—after the San Diego Padres non-tendered the 27-year old. In his three years with Boston (232 actual games), Middlebrooks hit .237 with 34 HRs and 122 RBIs. After failing to fulfill the promise he showed early in his career (mostly due to injuries), he was traded to the Padres for Andover High School's Ryan Hanigan. In his brief tenure with San Diego (83 games), Middlebrooks hit just .212 with 9 HRs and 29 RBIs. In 2014, he became engaged to former Red Sox sideline reporter Jenny Dell. We wish the best to Will in catching on with a new ballclub!
