Will Middlebrooks cleared to play for Red Sox

BRADENTON, Fla. — Will Middlebrooks was cleared by a hand specialist Thursday morning and took batting practice in Fort Myers. He is tentatively scheduled to play for the Red Sox Friday night.

Middlebrooks took an awkward swing at a high fastball in the first inning against the Orioles Wednesday night and felt a jolt of pain in his right wrist, the same wrist that was broken last August when he was hit by a pitch. He left the game as a precaution.
