Jacoby Ellsbury Still Out With Sore Ribs
BOSTON (AP) – Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury still has
soreness in his left side and was out of the lineup for Boston's
game against the Kansas City Royals.
The Red Sox have sent Ellsbury for MRIs and he will be examined
by team doctor Thomas Gill Thursday night.
Manager Terry Francona says the team has to figure out what is
going on with Ellsbury.
Ellsbury was injured in a game against Kansas City on April 11
when he collided with Adrian Beltre and was kneed in the ribs. He
missed 37 games with a hairline fracture in four ribs on his left
side before returning May 22 against Philadelphia. He played in
three games and went 1 for 14 and hasn't played since Monday.
Ellsbury said after Wednesday's game that there was still pain
in the same area as where the ribs were broken.
