Will Middlebrooks left last night's game against the Indians in a world of hurt. Saturday morning, the Red Sox third baseman took to social media to thank Red Sox fans for their support.
Thank you guys for your prayers and thoughts...It doesn't go unnoticed. RedSoxNation Will Middlebrooks (@middlebrooks) August 11, 2012
There has still been no official word from the Red Sox about the severity of Middlebrooks' injury. The Boston Globe reported that the Red Sox rookie suffered a broken wrist after being hit by a fastball by Esmil Rogers.
