Analysis: Manager Gabe Kapler said additional tests were needed to determine whether Middlebrooks also had ankle damage. He hit .211 in 22 games and 38 at-bats for the Rangers last year, when he spent most of the season at Triple-A Round Rock. Middlebrooks agreed in December to a minor league contract with the Phillies and would get a $1.2 million, one-year deal if added to the 40-man major league roster.
