News: Middlebrooks is not in the lineup Friday against the Orioles. Impact: The 26-year-old will ride the pine for the first time since Sept. 10, opening the door for Garin Cecchini to make his first career start. Middlebrooks has done little with his increased opportunities with Boston -- he's batting just .173/.218/.212 across 52 September at-bats -- and it's at least possible the team moves on in the offseason.(RotoWire, )

News: Middlebrooks (illness) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Royals, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports. Impact: With his bout with the flu similarly passing its course, Middlebrooks will return to his usual duties at the hot corner. Even with the promise of regular at-bats likely coming his way the rest of the season, it's hard to trust Middlebrooks as a fantasy option while his average remains well below the Mendoza Line.(RotoWire, )

News: Middlebrooks (illness) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Orioles. Impact: Middlebrooks was forced out of Monday's game after coming down with the flu, and he'll receive another day off to recover. The lightly-used Carlos Rivero will pick up a start at third base with Middlebrooks unavailable.(RotoWire, )

News: Middlebrooks left Tuesday's game with an illness, the Providence Journal's Brian MacPherson reports. Impact: Middlebrooks is now the third Boston player to leave a game with an illness recently, joining Brock Holt and Mike Napoli. With a slash line of .184/.251/.263, Middlebrooks has seen his value dip about as low as it can go this season, and there are likely serious internal questions about whether he has a significant future with the team. He should be considered day-to-day going forward.(RotoWire, )
