The first was a classic. The second, not so much, but it’s getting a lot more love recently for some reason. The third was a hot mess. So how about a fourth “Major League” movie?
Given how Hollywood works, “talking about it” could mean anything and usually means nothing. But maybe this is happening. If so, I can’t imagine it being anything good unless it was a complete and total reboot. Because really, who wants to go see Charlie Sheen in anything these days?
Phillies third baseman Will Middlebrooks suffered a serious injury during Saturday’s Grapefruit League contest against the Orioles. The infielder was chasing down a pop fly in the eighth inning when he ran into left fielder Andrew Pullin, who inadvertently trapped Middlebrooks’ ankle under his leg. Middlebrooks was unable to put weight on his leg following the collision and was carted off the field and taken to a local hospital for X-rays.
Per MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki, not much is known yet about the severity of the ankle injury or the recovery time it will require, though it appears serious enough to set Middlebrooks back considerably as he seeks a backup/bench role with the team this spring.
The 29-year-old is currently seeking another opportunity to extend his six-year major-league career in 2018. He’s coming off of two down years with the Brewers and Rangers, during which he slashed a cumulative .169/.229/.262 with four extra bases through 70 plate appearances.
