Insight: After trading Jose Iglesias in a deal for Jake Peavy, the Red Sox have had a hole at third base. Instead of calling up top prospect Xander Bogaerts, a shortstop who has been playing some third base at Triple-A, the team has gone back to Middlebrooks, who hit .268 with 10 homers and a .790 OPS in 45 games with Pawtucket. He'll return to a pitiful .192/.228/.389 line with the Red Sox.

Description: The Red Sox have optioned third baseman Will Middlebrooks to Triple-A Pawtucket, according to WEEI.com.
Insight: Middlebrooks lost his job to the hot-hitting Jose Iglesias earlier this week, so he'll work on his swing in the minors instead of sitting on the bench with the Red Sox. The 24-year-old has been a massive disappointment this season, batting .192 with a 60/9 K/BB and nine homers in 53 games.
