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.

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.

Shortly after denying any involvement with a South Florida clinic under investigation by Major League Baseball, second baseman showed no signs of being distracted during Monday’s 5-1 loss at Tampa Bay. Cano went 2 for 4 to extend his hitting streak to five games and accounted for New York’s only run with a homer in the fourth inning, his sixth of the season.

Prior to the game, ESPN reported the spokeswoman for Cano’s foundation was included on a client list of Biogenesis, a now-shuttered anti-aging clinic with ties to illegal performance-enhancing drugs. Sonia Cruz told ESPN she did not receive anything from the clinic and said Cano never did, either.

“I know what I am doing and I know myself,” Cano told reporters. “There is nothing else I can say about it.”

The situation is not expected to alteise for teammate Moussa Djenepo.Djenepo, who joined Saints from Standard Liege for £14m in summer, has quickly become a beacon of hope for supporters. Redmond told the Daily Echo: “He is a very, very good kid.“He is bright, bubbly and doesn’t taker the Yankees’ plan of attempting to keep Cano after he becomes a free agent in the offseason, according to the New York Post.

“I hope it wouldn’t be [a distraction],” manager Joe Girardi said. “He had to deal with it last year and people talked about his contract being a distraction. He gets to the field and he is all business.”
