Jacoby Ellsbury Getting More Rest After Tests Reveal 'Bigger Issue'

Jacoby Ellsbury had recently been hitting off of a tee, but along the way in his rehab, he wanted to get a second opinion on his rib injury, and the second opinion wasn't very positive.

2nd opinion on ellsbury ribcage injury reveals bigger issue. he needs at least 2 more weeks rest.

It shouldn't come as a surprise, and the important thing is getting Ellsbury right again for the stretch run, but these delays and setbacks are frustrating for all involved parties. The good news for the Red Sox is that Bill Hall has stepped up as a fill-in, but Ellsbury remains a big part of this team going forward.
