The Boston Red Sox could be without their center fielder for awhile. Jacoby Ellsbury will be having an MRI on his foot to determine whether he has a bone bruise or a fracture. Either way, Ellsbury will most likely be out of the lineup for an extended period of time.
This all started on August 28th, when Ellsbury took a foul ball off his foot. After continuing to play, Ellsbury aggrivated the injury in the Red Sox 9-8 win over the Yankees on Thursday. He was removed from the lineup on Friday, and is now going to have an MRI done today. Jackie Bradley Jr., one of the Red Sox top prospects, was called up and is playing center against the Yankees today.
Ellsbury has the third highest WAR on the Red Sox, posting a very good 5.4 mark, and will be missed very much in Boston. He is a very good player that will probably miss the rest of the season. It's unknown if and when Ellsbury could rejoin the club, but we will most likely know at the end of the day today.
