Red Sox Spring Training 2012: Will Middlebrooks Offers Thoughts On Chris Carpenter

After the Boston Red Sox let general manager Theo Epstein go to the Chicago Cubs, they were finally compensated on Tuesday with the addition of 27-year old right handed pitcher Chris Carpenter. No, not THAT Chris Carpenter. The other Chris Carpenter isn't exactly someone you'd call a household name, but he caught the attention of a young Red Sox prospect.

On Wednesday, Boston third base prospect Will Middlebrooks was asked about the newest member of the Red Sox since the two faced each other a few times in the minor leagues.

"I only faced him once. All I remember is he threw hard and had good stuff. He was one of the guys who was a later-innings guy, who came in and threw hard - good, hard stuff: hard fastball, hard slider. It was definitely good. ... He didn't have any control issues against us." (via WEEI)
