Here is my best explanation:

'the middle?' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'sailor joins party workers' is the wordplay.
'sailor' becomes 'ab' (abbreviation for able seaman).
'joins' says to put letters next to each other.
'party' becomes 'do' (do is a kind of party).
'workers' becomes 'men' (man is a kind of worker).
'ab'+'do'+'men'='ABDOMEN'

'in' acts as a link.
