Jacoby Ellsbury Activated From DL

Marlon Byrd has played more center field for the Red Sox than anyone else this season. Yeah. So it's with great pleasure that the Red Sox welcome Jacoby Ellsbury back to the lineup, as the center fielder was activated from the DL Friday, with Justin Germano getting DFA'd to make room.

Ellsbury hurt his shoulder on April 13 when Reid Brignac fell on him during an attempted double play. Since then, the Red Sox have used eight different center fielders, with Byrd getting the bulk of the playing time. Since Byrd's release, though, Ryan Kalish has been getting most of the starts.

Ellsbury is a huge component of the Red Sox' lineup, and he'll try to replicate the surprise MVP-caliber season that he had last year. He was 5-for-27 in eight rehab games for three different Red Sox affiliates, and he'll be in the starting lineup when the Red Sox play the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night.


Jacoby Ellsbury Placed On 15-Day DL With Subluxed Shoulder

The beginning of the 2012 Boston Red Sox season has gone from bad to worse. They managed a win in their home opener on Friday, but suffered a far worse loss as center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was officially placed on the 15-day disabled list with a dislocated shoulder.

Benjamin Buchanan of SB Nation Boston relays the official Red Sox statement on Ellsbury:

Jacoby injured his right shoulder during yesterday's game. An MRI was performed and showed findings consistent with a subluxed shoulder. We are in the process of gathering further information and determining the treatment plan. Jacoby will be placed on the 15-day disabled list prior to today's game.

Injuries of this type usually require a four-to-six week recovery time, so it is likely that Ellsbury will remain on the disabled list longer than 15 days. Boston just wants to ensure that they will be able to activate their key player as soon as he is able to play.
