Middlebrooks agreed to sign a minor league deal with the Rangers on Friday, the Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will join the organization he grew up rooting for, serving as organizational depth. Last year Middlebrooks hit .111 in 31 plate appearances with the Brewers and posted a 108 wRC+ at Triple-A. The former top prospect looks like a Quadruple-A hitter at this point.

Middlebrooks elected to become a free agent Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Middlebrooks spent most of the 2016 season with Triple-A Colorado Springs and appeared in just 10 games with the big club after signing with the Brewers last offseason, so he will seek opportunities elsewhere heading into next season.

Middlebrooks (lower leg) was activated from the disabled list and outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Middlebrooks has recovered from his lower leg strain, but the Brewers will not add him to the 25-man roster at this time. There is an outside shot he could see action with the big club before the season ends when rosters expand in September.

Middlebrooks (lower leg strain) will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Low-A Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Tom Haudricourt reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will DH for the Tiber Rattlers on Wednesday and is expected to play at least two games in the Midwest League before moving up to a more advanced level. The Brewers probably won't activate Middlebrooks until rosters expand in September, at which point he will occupy a part-time role.

Middlebrooks, who left Sunday's game with a lower right leg strain, has been placed on the 15-day DL by the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Middlebrooks, who hit well in his time at Triple-A Colorado Springs, has struggled in his limited work with the Brewers this season. It's unclear how much time the 27-year-old third baseman will miss, but he will have to play well and prove he's fully healthy in his rehab appearances to steal time away from Hernan Perez, who has been playing really well at the hot corner for Milwaukee.

Updating a previous report, Middlebrooks left Sunday's game early due to a lower leg strain.

EDGE Analysis

It doesn't sound like the ailment is overly serious, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Middlebrooks rested Monday against Arizona. If he does end up being unavailable, Hernan Perez and Jake Elmore are both candidates to get the start at third.

Middlebrooks left Sunday's game in the fourth inning with an apparent leg injury, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Middlebrooks popped out to second base on the play, and injured himself somewhere along the way. He needed to be helped off the field by teammates, and appeared unable to put much weight on the leg. According to the live broadcast, the injury appears to be something related to his calf, which may indicate a cramp due to the high level of humidity in Milwaukee on Sunday. Consider him day-to-day in advance of Monday's series opener against the Diamondbacks.

Middlebrooks is in the lineup, playing third base and batting sixth, against St. Louis on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Middlebrooks' contract was selected on July 3 to provide infield depth with the departure of Aaron Hill to the Red Sox. Middlebrooks, who's 1-for-5 with two strikeouts so far for the Brewers, is in line to serve in a two-man platoon role with Hernan Perez going forward.

Middlebrooks' contract was selected by the Brewers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Middlebrooks will add some depth around the Milwaukee infield as the Brewers head to Washington to open a road series with the Nationals on Monday. The former Red Sox and Padres third baseman has spent this entire season at Triple-A Colorado Springs, where he has put together a respectable .282/.308/.508 slash line over 264 at-bats. He has not hit above .220 at the major league level since 2013.

Middlebrooks was placed on the 15-day disabled list with Triple-A Colorado Springs due to an oblique strain, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Middlebrooks was removed from Monday's game against Nashville in the third inning, and it seems that this oblique injury was the cause of that. He hadn't been swinging the bat very well with the Sky Sox, holding a .154 batting average when he left the game, and this development will only hinder his chances of getting called up to the big leagues any time soon.
