Jacoby Ellsbury sat out his second straight game last night. And may miss a third today given that the Sox have an offday tomorrow and giving him four straight days off to recover may be ideal, but his groin is doing much better according to John Farrell in the Boston Globe:
“Not ruling out [Sunday] as his availability. But, still, we’ve got to monitor and check in on him each day he comes to park here. The improvement is encouraging today.”
Jackie Bradley, Jr. was 3 for 5 and scored two runs in Ellsbury’s place last night. Look for him to get the start again tonight.
