Middlebrooks promoted to Pawtucket

The Red Sox have promoted third baseman Will Middlebrooks from Class AA Portland to Class AAA Pawtucket.

Middlebrooks, 22, was hitting .302/.345/.520 for the Sea Dogs with 18 home runs and 80 RBIs over 96 games. He was a fifth round draft pick in 2007 and has made steady progress since.

Middlebrooks is in the lineup for Pawtucket tonight at McCoy Stadium.

The Sox also promoted hard-throwing reliever Chris Martin from Class A Salem to Portland. For more on Martin and his unlikely road to the Sox, check out this story Mike Vega did on him a few weeks ago
