Even After Being Activated From DL, Ellsbury Continues To Experience Discomfort In Ribcage

Jacoby Ellsbury missed more than a full month of action with four broken ribs. He was finally activated from the DL last Saturday and played three straight games, but then he felt soreness again and hasn't played since Monday. Now he's off to see a specialist.

Jacoby Ellsbury is scheduled to see a specialist today to determine the status of his cracked ribs and the apparently related pain he has been experiencing lately.

Depending on what Ellsbury hears, it's possible that the Red Sox will have to put him back on the disabled list. These injury problems are leading some to question Ellsbury's commitment and determination, which - even if false - isn't the sort of allegation one needs to have following him around while playing in a city like Boston.
