Jacoby Ellsbury Injury Update: Out 6-8 Weeks with Right Shoulder Subluxation

Jacoby Ellsbury just can’t buy a break sometimes. Two years ago, he played just 18 games while he battled severely broken ribs. Last year, he had a career season but finished 2nd in MVP voting (behind a freaking pitcher!) after his team absolutely choked away their playoff spot.

And now this year, Ellsbury will miss 1-2 months with a right shoulder subluxation (which is a temporary and partial dislocated shoulder).

Ellsbury suffered the injury while performing a takeout slide in the fourth inning of Friday’s Opening Day game at Fenway. Rays SS Reid Brignac landed on Ellsbury after completing the throw to first, crushing his right shoulder.

The Red Sox now have only three healthy major league outfielders, with Cody Ross, Ryan Sweeney and Darnell McDonald. Fortunately, all three can play in center field.

The team will likely call up 23-year-old PawSox OF Che-Hsuan Lin ahead of Saturday’s game.

Uh oh?
