Jacoby Ellsbury Has New Rib Fracture, Could Be Out Until All Star Break

That 'bigger issue' we talked about yesterday - it's a new, small rib fracture for Jacoby Ellsbury.

Red Sox doctor Thomas Gill said in a conference call on Friday that Jacoby Ellsbury will not be back for a minimum of two weeks and could be out until the All-Star break.

The center fielder will not perform any baseball activities until he is re-evaluated now that another small fracture has been found in his rib cage -- a fracture, Gill said, that is almost completely unrelated to his original injury.

Ellsbury originally hurt his ribs when he collided with Adrian Beltre in early April. This new injury is believed to have happened when Ellsbury dove for a ball in late May. The only thing Ellsbury can do is wait until he's symptom-free.
