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.

starting pitcher has been a surprise in the early part of the season, and Al Melchior thinks he can continue to impress heading into Fantasy Week 6 (May 6-12). Al has Tepesch ranked 54th in for the week, thanks to a two-start week.

Tepesch does not have overwhelming, swing-and-miss stuff, so his success so far in his major league career has come as something of a surprise. Despite strikd they’re in talks to sign permanently Manchester United defender Chris Smalling.Smalling is on a season-long loan with Roma.De Sanctis said, “It is well known that we are trying to find a solution that makes everyone happy. “We are in no rush, we waing out just 5.79 batters per nine innings with a sinker that averages 90.6 miles per hour, Tepesch has emerged as a viable Fantasy option after his first five starts.  He is succeeding thanks to a heavy dose of groundballs and pinpoint control, a combination that has worked for him.

It would not be a surprise if Tepeschare “purely speculation”.14-year-old Bobby is one of the highest rated youngsters at Newcastle United’s academy, with first-team manager Steve Bruce already aware of his potential.He made history at Toon this season when he became the youngster playe regresses through the rest of the season, but I wouldn’t expect it this week.
