Jacoby Ellsbury Injured

April 14, 2012 by staff 

Jacoby Ellsbury Injured, Boston Red Sox lead-off hitter Jacoby Ellsbury, who was runner-up in last season’s American League MVP race, may miss significant time with a shoulder injury suffered in Friday’s 12-2 win over Tampa Bay.

Ellsbury injured his shoulder while trying to break up a double play in the fourth inning of Friday’s game.

The Red Sox have not officially made an announcement on Ellsbury’s status, saying only that he suffered a right shoulder injury, but the Boston Globe is citing a baseball source who says has a dislocated or partially dislocated shoulder and will miss six to eight weeks. Gordon Edes of also has a source saying much of the same, and that there is no timetable for Ellsbury’s return.

Boston is expected to call up Che-Hsuan Lin from Class AAA Pawtucket to take Ellsbury’s spot on the everyday roster for Saturday’s game. The Taiwanese outfielder was scratched moments before Pawtucket’s game Friday night against Rochester.

Ellsbury played only 18 games in 2010 after fracturing his ribs in an early-season game, but last season he hit .321 with 32 homers and 105 RBI.
