Middlebrooks went 1 for 4, his only hit being a solo homer. Through three rehab games, Middlebrooks has four hits and has driven in six runs. 

Manager John Farrell was impressed with Middlebrooks’ performance, according to .com, saying “very encouraging. Some of the things that we’ve highlighted with Will, he showed [Wednesday].

Alderson isn’t the only person backing the struggling Davis. Manager Terry Collins said he will continue to start Davis because he feels a turnaround is also in his future.

“He’s got a track record of doing it,” Collins said. “I know if we keep getting him out there, he’s going to eventually find it.”

Davis appears to have a formula for snapping his prolonged slump.

“Last year I did some things I probably shouldn’t have done early, like I stopped trying to drive the ball and that was my second month (of struggling) so it just got worse,” Davis said. “Finally, I went back to driving the ball. Last year, I didn’t know if it was ever going to stop. But now, I know eventually it’s gonna start happening. I feel like, I am getting better.”
