Ellsbury Goes For Further Examinations

CLEVELAND (AP) – Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is

going for a further examination of his injured ribs.

Ellsbury has played only nine games this season because of four

broken ribs. He will be checked by Dr. Lewis Yocum on Wednesday in

Los Angeles.

Ellsbury was hurt in a collision with Boston third baseman

Adrian Beltre on April 11. He was out for more than a month, then

returned for a week before going back on the disabled list.

He has undergone a series of tests, but is still feeling pain

and isn't close to returning. Ellsbury led the majors with 70

stolen bases last season and batted .301.
