third baseman hit a home run during Thursday’s rehab game.

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]. Obviously with the home run to right-center field. And as we stated before, when he’s in the right place, doing what he’s capable of, he’s proven he’s a Major League player.”

Middlebrooks had to prove he was healthy in the minors to be promoted again, and his performance has been encouraging.

outfielder was forced to leave Wednesday’s game with a strained right hamstring, and an MRI Thursday should determine whether he needs to , according to ESPN.com.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is worried this injury could prove costly for Kemp, who missed 51 games last season with left hamstring injuries.

“I guess I shouldn’t say it, but any time you hear the dreaded ‘hamstring’ word, usually it lasts a little bit,” Mattingly said. “But they said it was mild. Hopefully, Matt caught himself before he got it good. We’ll see.”

Kemp does not feel the injury is serious as last season’s, which cost him two DL trips.

It was his first complete game since June 4, 2009. 

Harang struck out a season-high eight batters, while throwing 80 of his 122 pitches for strikes. He credited this approach with his success in the outing. 

“I’ve been working really hard with (pitching coach) Carl (Willis) to try and get things lined up and he’s looked at a lot of video. The big thing was coming out and pounding the strike zone and getting ahead in the count,” Harang said. “They’re an aggressive team they’re going to go out swinging and I was able to get them to put the ball into play within the first couple of pitches a few times and didn’t get into the count too much early on.”

Harang is now 2-5 on the season with a 6.51 ERA. His next start is scheduled for Saturday at Minnesota.

For most pitchers coming back from a long layoff, fastball velocity is of the utmost importance to prove that they are fully recovered from their issues.

“That’s not a big deal to me,” ESPN.com. “As long as I get outs, it works. I watched Jamie Moyer forever get outs at 81 mph. Velocity is nothing. I felt great. It sucks I couldn’t keep going.”

It was easy for Garza to say that after averaging a healthy 93.4 miles per hour with his fastball, while not allowing a hit on either his four or two-seam offerings. He threw just 81 pitches in the game, and Garza obviously hopes the team will take the reigns off moving forward.

“You think they’re going to take me out without a fight?” Garza said. “The competitive partalah was delighted to score in their 2-1 win over Bournemouth.Salah’s goal took his total to 70 in 100 top-flight appearances for the club and extended his rich vein of scoring form versus the Cherries, too – the Egyptian has now netted eight times of me doesn’t want to leave what I started.”

Garza held the Pirates to just one hit in five innings of work.
