The 25-year-old Middlebrooks suffered the injury during Friday night’s 1-0 loss to the Detroit Tigers, when he attempted to field a line drive.

In 21 games with the Red Sox this season, Middlebrooks is hitting .197 with two home runs and nine RBIs. He missed 19 games in April due to a right calf strain.
