He was 4-for-10 with a stolen base during a three-game minor league rehab stint between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket.

According to Joe McDonald of ESPNBoston.com, he is expected to play center field until Mike Cameron returns from an abdominal injury.

Ellsbury has been sidelined since suffering a hairline fracture to four of his ribs in a collision with third baseman Adrian Beltre on April 11. He was batting .333 (10-for-30) with four doubles, one RBI, two stolen bases and six runs scored before going on the disabled list.
